Revenues for the elder care services industry (skilled nursing, home health care, social services, continuing care, and assisted living) are expected to grow 5.2 percent per year through 2016 to $319.5 billion. Advances will be driven largely by demographic changes in light of increasing life expectancy, which is contributing to the rising number of individuals in the older population segments. Growth will be further boosted by the large, post-World War II "baby boom" generation entering its retirement years. Gains will also be spurred by a recovery in the economy and the housing market, enabling older adults to more easily finance their care. Further growth will be restrained by continuing efforts at the state and federal levels to curb Medicaid and Medicare expenditures, often by either limiting reimbursements or by directing patients to less expensive forms of care. Elder care service providers compete functionally with Informal caregivers, typically family members; however, a growing number of older adults either do not have family members who are able to care for them or simply prefer using professional care. These and other trends are presented in Elder Care Services, a new study from The Freedonia Group, Inc., a Cleveland-based industry market research firm.
In 2011, skilled nursing facilities accounted for the largest share of elder care service revenues with 43 percent. However, home and community based services (e.g., home health care, social services, assisted living) are projected to achieve faster growth. Advances for home and community based services will be driven by continued state and federal efforts to shift Medicaid payments away from skilled nursing to more cost effective community based services. Additionally, many older adults prefer to age in place, remaining in their homes as long as possible. Continuing care revenues will grow strongly, benefiting from a rebound in the housing market as many older adults sell their homes to pay for the steep entry fees of continuing care facilities. For-profit entities accounted for 66 percent of elder care service revenues in 2011, benefiting from their dominance in the large skilled nursing segment and leading position in the home health and assisted living markets as the chain and franchise business models develop. Nonprofits (e.g., charitable organizations and government related agencies) account for the larger share of revenue in the continuing care and social services markets.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
