IHTV Releases Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion Step Down Room and ED Videos
NEW YORK, July 7, 2014 - Intelligenthospital.tv (IHTV) just released the Step Down Room and Emergency Department videos from the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion shot at HIMSS14 in Orlando this past February.
The Step-Down / Med Surg area of the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion represents a moderate acuity environment responsible for managing a broad spectrum of patients. Patients are typically increasingly mobile and the clinical staff is more dependent on the delivery of critical information directly to the point of care.
The Emergency Department of the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion represents a high pace envir/h2>ocessing and broad spectrum of clinical information to readily available and documented.
It is the goal of the Intelligent Health Association to raise the level of awareness of the available technologies and provide educational programs around research, standards, regulatory issues, operational flow and optimization. Follow this link to view both videos.
IHTV Releases Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion LDPR Video
NEW YORK, June 16, 2014 - Intelligenthospital.tv (IHTV) just released the LDPR video from the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion shot at HIMSS14 in Orlando this past February. Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Post-Partum (LDRP) Rooms are designed to provide a comfortable, home-like atmosphere that facilitates patient safety, operational efficiencies, and an overall favorable patient experience. In support of baby friendly hospital initiatives, the LDRP room provides a private environment that promotes the initial bonding between mother and child, allows for caregivers to deliver personalized education, and support for breast feeding and infant care.
Maternal – fetal monitoring during labor and delivery helps care providers implement best practices and improve patient outcomes. These rooms are designed to accommodate state-of-the-art fetal monitoring technology, medical equipment, and supplies that are ready for use when needed throughout the patient’s entire stay. Perinatal data systems capture data from the fetal monitor and import the strips into the system for electronic surveillance and remote monitoring. The patients’ electronic medical record is able to be captured through the documentation modules designed around the clinical workflow specific to labor and delivery. All associated data is integrated to the Healthcare Information System (HIS) providing a complete electronic medical record. Special tools enable care providers the ability to get fast, accurate assistance in the assessment of FHR baseline, variability, accelerations and decelerations, and to apply NICHD definitions with confidence and clarity. Through the use of remote technology (smart phones and/or internet) physicians are able to monitor their patients and utilize the special tools. The perinatal system provides patients with confidence that they are being monitored at all times, even when the care provider is not in the room. Watch the video here

The Intelligent Hospital ™ Pavilion at HIMSS2013, Exceeds Expectations!
Standing at the entrance to the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion at the HIMSS13 Conference – waiting for the ribbon ceremony to conclude and let the crowd of eagerly waiting attendees into the exhibit – I couldn’t help but think back to 2007 when several of us from the RFID Technical Institute and the International RFID Business Association began designing the education model for the healthcare environment of the future. The challenge was to envision the overall hospital care process from end-to-end and begin mapping new enabling technologies to the various clinical work methods. We had an arsenal of new auto-identification tools – RFID, RTLS, sensors, etc. – that begged to be incorporated into this challenging, complex setting. Each operational area of the hospital was reviewed for its strengths and weaknesses and then revised by applying a suitable tool that produced benefit – performance improvement and/or risk mitigation. The envisioned hospital work methods model became the basis of the design for educational courseware that prototyped the intelligent hospital experience and provided a framework concept for the development of the pavilion.
As the opening ceremony commenced there was a sense in the audience that something special was about to happen. Then on cue, maneuvering between onlookers, there appeared the newly introduced RP-7i ® Robot from INTOUCH HEALTH – a device combining remote control and remote presence technologies that allows a remote clinician to see and interact with patience and staff. The “robotic physician’s assistant” proceeded toward the pavilion entrance and delivered the ribbon cutting scissors to complete the opening ceremony. With that small task facilitated in a creative way the RP-7i aid suddenly became symbolic of greater things to come, not only in the pavilion, but also within the broader healthcare industry. Welcome to our new electronic member of the hospital community! Continue reading here.
The RFID in Healthcare Consortium and HIMSS have partnered in 2011, 2012 and again for 2013 to deliver a series of educational programs to the life sciences industry to help raise the level of awareness for the use of a technologies in improving patient care, safety, and operating efficiencies in a healthcare, assisted living and nursing home facilities.
- a complete OR suite
- state of the art War Room
- a fully equipped ICU
- a Step DownRoom
- a complete ED facility
In addition, the 2013 pavilion included:
The “Intelligent Hospital ™” section of the Pavilion provided a practical overview of a variety of technologies seamlessly integrated to provide clinicians with ‘real-time’ patient information delivered to their smartphones or tablets. Numerous use cases simulated scenarios from the OR, ICU, Step-down and ED rooms as part of the “Intelligent Hospital”.
Clinicians saw first-hand how information collected through the use of data capture technologies and from diverse patient care environments including remote locations. The pavilion showcases solutions that incorporated auto-ID/Bar code scanning, RFID, RTLS (real time locating systems), Sensors and Wireless technologies. The “Intelligent Hospital™” demonstrated centralized and distributed methods of managing physiological data and alarms. The Pavilion focused on raising the level of awareness and educating healthcare professionals. To learn more about HIMSS13, view the HIMSS13 brochure HERE!
