That Stupid Machine Is Alarming Again

Transitioning Hospital Technology Into The Home

AAMI Foundation’s
Healthcare Technology Safety Institute Webinar

Thursday, December 11, 2014 @ 1:00 pm Eastern

The delivery of healthcare in nontraditional settings is increasing rapidly as the population ages, people live longer with serious medical conditions, and hospitals strive to cut costs.  Patients often prefer receiving care in the comfort of their own homes; however, placing complex medical equipment in the home can be extraordinarily difficult.  Join this webinar to hear from Pediatric Home about how they are successfully managing the pediatric home medical equipment to enable pediatric patients to live safely and successfully at home.  This webinar will focus on:

A. The benefits of biomedical personnel and the process of equipment maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair
B. How PHS develops its home care plan and trains caregivers to focus on home device medical management.

Attendees will also receive examples of tools created to advise caregivers when things go wrong with patients or their medical devices.

Speakers:
– Judy Giel, AAS, RRT, Chief Clinical Officer
Pediatric Home Service
– Roy Maynard, MD, Medical Director
