Collaborative Mobility: Is the Second Wave of Clinical Mobility the Key to More Effective Clinical Care?
Jan Duffy, EMEA Research Director, IDC Government Insights and IDC Health Insights
Rick Cnossen, Director of Personal Health Enabling, Intel Corporation Digital Health Group
Join Intel & IDC for an interactive discussion with key customers and healthcare leaders focused on a new IDC whitepaper “The Second Wave of Clinical Mobility: Strategic Solution Investments for Mobile Point of Care in Western Europe”.
In today’s hectic environment, clinicians demand instant-on, always-connected mobile point of care (MPOC) solutions and typically use as many as ten different devices on any given day. In the world of the clinician, access to timely, accurate information and communications can be a matter of life or death. But, the use of mobile devices to access information is just the tip of the performance iceberg, the real benefit lies in communication and collaboration in real-time, whenever and wherever the clinician is working. The ability to consult expeditiously with other team members – specialists, pharmacists, nursing staff – allows the clinician to resolve questions without delay, ensuring best patient care.
The Journey from Papyrus to PC – 1812-2012 in One Leap
Speaker: Dr Rajan Paw, MB ChB, FRCS(A+E). Ed, FCEM, Consultant Emergency Physician, Medical Service Head Emergency Medicine, Dudley Group Hospitals, UK
The presentation describes the journey over a 6 month period of a UK ED at The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust that treats 100, 000 patients a year from being entirely dependent on paper with IT. Only being used to view x-ray images to becoming the first UK ED with a fully functioning EPR with e-prescribing, electronic order coms, electronic referrals to inpatient specialties and full patient tracking via the Siemens Healthcare IT product Soarian® Clinicals. This change was made with minimum ED process redesign and whilst maintaining performance against the UK ED quality indicators. The presentation highlights key issues in both IT development and change management and how close collaboration between clinicians and IT professionals with heavy clinical engagement along with a team focused on the required outcomes can result in a successful implementation.
