Smartphones Are Driving Clinical Transformation

4:15pm - 5:15pm Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W311E

Description

Hospitals and health systems surveyed are making large-scale, enterprise-wide investments in smartphones and unified communications solutions to drive clinical transformation and address mission as well as patient-critical communications requirements of clinical and non-clinical mobile workers within the hospital and across care continuum. These solutions support the achievement of the Quadruple Aim by reducing costs, improving quality and outcomes and increasing patient and provider satisfaction. The speakers, representing research, clinician and administrator standpoints, will offer compelling details of what a successful deployment looks like; how to address and overcome the associated pitfalls in operationalizing a large-scale health system-wide deployment; and explore future growth opportunities involved with integrating these solutions with evidence-based clinical pathways and care management programs including support of bedside documentation and clinical surveillance.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define what smartphone-based unified communications is and how hospitals are using these solutions to achieve Quadruple Aim and potential ROI models to justify large scale investments
  • Identify how smartphone-based communications are driving clinical transformation and can address mission- and patient-critical communications requirements of clinical and non-clinical mobile workers
  • Recognize how to address and overcome the associated pitfalls in operationalizing a large-scale health system-wide deployment across different care settings
  • Discuss future growth opportunities integrating solutions with evidence-based clinical pathways and care management programs including support of bedside documentation and clinical surveillance
  • Recognize how hospitals can leverage an evidence-based approach using RTLS; intelligent rules-based engine and predictive analytics to reduce alert, alarm and notification fatigue at point of care
