Connected Patient Care: Clinical Communication in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

10:00am - 11:00am Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W414C

Description

This presentation will cover the information system built and implemented to enable the transition from an open-bay neonatal intensive care unit (NNICU) to a state-of-the-art NNICU comprised of private/semi-private rooms across two floors without increasing staff. This technology aggregates multiple, disparate systems and provides clinical communication and alarm/alert notifications to keep patients safe and caregivers connected to each other, their patients, and the patients’ families. This presentation was one of three presentations that enabled Yale New Haven Health System to be awarded the HIMSS Davies Award.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify information technology and clinical technology needs for new construction projects
  • Analyze communication protocols for existing equipment
  • Integrate disparate systems for alarm notification and distribution to smart devices
  • Measure positive patient outcomes and return on capital investment
