Point of Care
Critical care settings are among the most stressful places to work. Monitoring patients and processing information in real-time, at the point of care requires focus and continuous access to data. A lot has changed in recent years to improve the way we receive and process patient data. More patient data is available now than ever before and the challenges and demands of integration, storage, and distribution are increasing as well. We’ll discuss workflow improvements, clinical decision support tools, medical informatics, and recent innovations that impact how you care for acutely ill patients.
Monitoring patients and processing information in real-time requires focus and continuous access to data. Yet with limited staff and increasing numbers of patients, how can we identify those patients at risk and once identified, how do we know what to do? The General Care Track will focus on the latest ideas and solutions for leveraging innovative technology for more informed clinical decisions in the General Ward. Speakers will share best practices and case studies on topics such as clinical support tools, data integration, workflow, and mobile solutions, providing you with the insights you need to confidently deliver quality care everywhere it matters.
