Session Abstract:

There is a lot of discussion across healthcare about Big Data. It’s certainly true that the insight gained by pattern identification and predictive modeling has enabled amazing advances in diagnostic and healing technologies. And yet, we still need caregivers to interrupt the delivery of care to write things down or type at a keyboard in order to capture time stamps and other data required to measure performance.

It is time to push ourselves and each other to insist on innovations in the design of end-to-end systems that take the collection and consumption of digital location and time stamp data into consideration, so that nearly all of the data we need is automatically collected. It is possible. It is happening in the real-time operations space. And, there is already a great deal of real-time location and condition-sensing data flowing through many health systems today, which makes getting started even easier.

What you’ll learn:
In this session you will learn the definition and importance of real-time operations in healthcare. You will get inspired by examples of significant improvements being achieved in efficiency, patient safety, and patient and staff satisfaction. You will become aware of the factors to consider, such as location sensing options, software applications available, and best paths for driving adoption across your health system.
