Join HP Inc. for a HIMSS17 Lunch & Learn

Presented by:
Shannon Walters, MS, RT (R) (MR)
3DLab Manager, Stanford

Join Shannon Walters of Stanford’s 3DQ Lab as he discusses how interactive virtual reality has been fully integrated into the informatics infrastructure (PACS/VNA) of Stanford and applied to support both radiologists and surgeons in pediatric congenital heart defect and cerebral arterial venous malformations (AVM’s) clinical trials and acute patient treatment.

Preliminary studies demonstrate that advanced interactive virtual reality enhances visual cognition of anatomic relationships and can play a key role in clinical decision making and surgical technique, as well as enhance patient communication.

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Describe the ways in which 3D imaging improves clinical outcomes
  • Describe the role that 3D technology plays in fostering interdisciplinary communication
  • Recite the benefits that interactive virtual reality has on patient engagement
  • List the critical factors involved in the adoption of 3D medical imaging solutions
  • Compare and contrast the value and application of 2D and 3D medical imaging data analysis

Lunch and refreshments will be served.

Optimize OR Block Schedules Using Machine Learning and Mobile Technologies to Improve Access and Lower Costs by $500K+ per OR Per Year

February 22, 2017 — 11:15AM EST - 12:15PM EST

Join LeanTaaS for a HIMSS17 Lunch & Learn

Presented by:
Ashley Walsh, MHA
Perioperative Business Manager, UCHealth

Sanjeev Agrawal
President and CMO, LeanTaaS

Healthcare providers feel significant pressure to meet the needs of surgeons and nursing staff while balancing operational targets (utilization, access, revenue). Current block schedule management approaches, which often rely on intuition and “tribal” rules, make it challenging to allocate OR time fairly and efficiently.

UCHealth solved this problem by leveraging predictive analytics and big data. This session will explain how UCHealth improved OR utilization and productivity with secure and convenient mobile block exchange, optimized staffing plans, smart block schedules, and an actionable performance tracker that ensures the right surgeon gets the right block at the right time.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.
