For the past 30 years, Citrix has made a successful habit of challenging the status quo. That includes:

        --Delivering applications as streaming services to multiple users

        --Making the entire PC desktop into a secure service

        --Enhancing networks that optimize applications delivery

        --Pioneering infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) now known as public cloud, and

        --Supplying a way to take enterprise applications and data to the mobile edge.

Now, Citrix is at it again, by creating digital workspaces and redefining the very nature of applications and business intelligence. How has one company been able to not only reinvent itself again and again, but make major and correct bets on the future direction of global information technology?

The next BriefingsDirect healthcare finance insights discussion explores the impacts from increased cost transparency for medical services.

The recent required publishing of hospital charges for medical procedures is but one example of rapid regulatory and market changes. The emergence of more data about costs across the health provider marketplace could be a major step toward educated choices – and ultimately more efficiency and lower total expenditures.

But early-stage cost transparency also runs the risk of out-of-context information that offers little actionable insight into actual consumer costs and obligations. And unfiltered information requirements also place new burdens on physicians, caregivers, and providers – in areas that have more to do with economics than healthcare.
