Cablevisión, one of Argentina’s leading media and communications companies, was facing a challenge in boosting customer loyalty and minimizing churn. The company wanted to enhance service quality and customer satisfaction but lacked an effective method to identify dissatisfied customers and address their issues. Regular satisfaction surveys did not provide a comprehensive picture as many subscribers chose not to participate. Moreover, if customers did not report their problems to the helpdesk, the company often had no feedback from them at all. The company realized that it needed to diagnose and resolve connectivity problems early to retain customers. The challenge was to predict which internet subscribers were dissatisfied, regardless of whether they complained or not, by gathering data about network status from customers’ modems and comparing it with the results of satisfaction surveys.
About The Customer
Cablevisión is a leading media and communications company in Argentina. Founded in 1981, the company provides cable TV services to 3.5 million subscribers and internet services to 1.8 million more. Employing more than 10,000 people, Cablevisión is committed to delivering high-quality services to its customers. The company's primary goal is to maintain a reliable revenue stream by keeping customers satisfied and minimizing churn. One of the most important factors in customer satisfaction for Cablevisión is the quality of service that it delivers. The company understands that service quality has a far greater impact on customer satisfaction than any other factor, including the price of the service.
To address this challenge, Cablevisión collaborated with IBM Business Partner BeSmart and the IBM® Global Business Services® Business Analytics & Strategy team to deploy IBM SPSS® Modeler, a predictive analytics platform. This platform enabled the company to analyze large volumes of service quality data generated by the modems of its 1.8 million internet subscribers. The company first used CSAT models to analyze over 25,000 satisfaction surveys and then used 42 million daily network indicators to examine the health of those customers’ modems in the 15 days preceding the survey. Using regression tree techniques, Cablevisión mapped out various combinations of connectivity problems and scored each combination based on how likely it was to cause dissatisfaction. This insight allowed the company to predict which customers were most likely to be dissatisfied with the service quality.

Hospital Inventory Management
The hospital supply chain team is responsible for ensuring that the right medical supplies are readily available to clinicians when and where needed, and to do so in the most efficient manner possible. However, many of the systems and processes in use at the cancer center for supply chain management were not best suited to support these goals. Barcoding technology, a commonly used method for inventory management of medical supplies, is labor intensive, time consuming, does not provide real-time visibility into inventory levels and can be prone to error. Consequently, the lack of accurate and real-time visibility into inventory levels across multiple supply rooms in multiple hospital facilities creates additional inefficiency in the system causing over-ordering, hoarding, and wasted supplies. Other sources of waste and cost were also identified as candidates for improvement. Existing systems and processes did not provide adequate security for high-cost inventory within the hospital, which was another driver of cost. A lack of visibility into expiration dates for supplies resulted in supplies being wasted due to past expiry dates. Storage of supplies was also a key consideration given the location of the cancer center’s facilities in a dense urban setting, where space is always at a premium. In order to address the challenges outlined above, the hospital sought a solution that would provide real-time inventory information with high levels of accuracy, reduce the level of manual effort required and enable data driven decision making to ensure that the right supplies were readily available to clinicians in the right location at the right time.

Driving Digital Transformations for Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices
Diagnostic devices play a vital role in helping to improve healthcare delivery. In fact, an estimated 60 percent of the world’s medical decisions are made with support from in vitrodiagnostics (IVD) solutions, such as those provided by Roche Diagnostics, an industry leader. As the demand for medical diagnostic services grows rapidly in hospitals and clinics across China, so does the market for IVD solutions. In addition, the typically high cost of these diagnostic devices means that comprehensive post-sales services are needed. Wanteed to improve three portions of thr IVD:1. Remotely monitor and manage IVD devices as fixed assets.2. Optimizing device availability with predictive maintenance.3. Recommending the best IVD solution for a customer’s needs.

Harnessing real-time data to give a holistic picture of patient health
Every day, vast quantities of data are collected about patients as they pass through health service organizations—from operational data such as treatment history and medications to physiological data captured by medical devices. The insights hidden within this treasure trove of data can be used to support more personalized treatments, more accurate diagnosis and more advanced preparative care. But since the information is generated faster than most organizations can consume it, unlocking the power of this big data can be a struggle. This type of predictive approach not only improves patient care—it also helps to reduce costs, because in the healthcare industry, prevention is almost always more cost-effective than treatment. However, collecting, analyzing and presenting these data-streams in a way that clinicians can easily understand can pose a significant technical challenge.
