About the Session

Patient safety and quality healthcare delivery are priorities for top-performing hospitals and healthcare systems everywhere. Achieving big gains requires transformational work and that is often difficult. A key component to accelerating this work is having the ability to spot risk early and intervene in the moment when it matters. Real-time, contextual information that is usable is the currency with which to make this happen and is an enabler of central surveillance of clinical deterioration, improving compliance to evidence-based care protocols, enhancing obstetrical and neonatal care, reducing litigation cost risks related to obstetrical care, reducing hospital harm events, improving the functional status of elderly patients, improving coordination and communication, and other desired outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover ways to put clinical data to work to support care team decisions, trigger early interventions and get results, all in real-time.
  • Investigate the role of healthcare command centers in the journey toward high reliability healthcare.
