February 22, 2017 — 10:00AM EST - 11:00AM EST
Orange County Convention Center
This lecture focuses on the implementation of a wireless text messaging system which utilizes middleware and smart phone technology for communicating critical information during neonatal resuscitation. The lecture will guide participants through the evolution of a communication process that began with verbal handoffs involving multiple providers to a direct and efficient electronic communication. The improvement in communication that occurred following a series of changes in the communication process will be described. The presentation will provide insight into the multiple considerations that must be made when employing middleware for clinical communication, including human factors design.
Recognize the value of wireless technology to improve multi-disciplinary clinical communication
Evaluate the impact of two different middleware on communication for a common clinical scenario (neonatal resuscitation)
Describe the ways that human factors design can influence the effect of middleware technology
