|Technologies are transforming the healthcare industry - Auto-ID, Biometrics, BLE, M2M, NFC, RFID, RTLS, Sensors, and Wireless. Are you ready for this revolution? Do you have a grasp of the business and technical essentials needed to successfully implement these technologies?|
The Intelligent Health Association will present a Symposium, “Join the Evolution to the Revolution – Transforming and Innovating Healthcare Through New Technologies,” on Sunday, February 23 at the Orlando Hilton from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Symposium is co-sponsored by the RFID in Healthcare Consortium (RHCC), IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), and IEEE Life Sciences. Taking place the day prior to the start of the HIMSS 2014 healthcare conference, this Symposium brings together some of the brightest, most influential physicians from several of the top hospitals in the country to discuss how the implementation of innovative technologies are creating dramatic improvements in patient care, patient safety, and operating efficiencies, and provide health care workers with real-time visibility of mission critical data, assets, processes, and staff. Individuals that would like to attend the Symposium are encouraged to register right away, as space is limited.
|Physicians and experts from Kaiser Permanente, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Alameda County Medical Center, Florida Hospital, Veterans Affairs hospital, and many others will present case studies to share lessons learned from their first-hand experience in implementing new technologies, including Auto-ID, Biometrics, BLE, M2M, NFC, RFID, RTLS, Sensors, and Wireless Solutions. Symposium attendees can expect to learn more about:
|Christopher Jerry, founder of the Emily Jerry Foundation and a national advocate for increasing the adoption of new technologies to minimize death and injury from medication errors, will deliver the Symposium’s keynote speech, “The Emily Jerry Story: From Tragedy to Triumph – Improving Patient Care and Safety Through the Adoption of Technology.” Jerry’s two year-old daughter, Emily, tragically died from a medication error in a hospital setting in 2006. Emily was completing her final chemotherapy treatment when a hospital pharmacy technician mistakenly formulated a lethal dose of concentrated sodium chloride solution.The Symposium’s luncheon speaker is EMBS Distinguished Lecturer and Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, Guang-Zhong Yang. Dr. Yang’s speech, “Body Sensor Networks – Reshaping the Future of Pervasive Healthcare,” will address the increasingly important role of wearable or implanted wireless devices, along with the key technical challenges, latest developments, and practical examples on how best to implement these technologies.Dr. Neil Halpern, Chief of Critical Care Medicine at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, will conclude the Symposium by leading a panel discussion on the continuum of health and wellness.“We are so fortunate to have global thought leaders from the healthcare industry coming together to participate in what I expect will be nothing short of a transformational experience for us all. By sharing their first-hand experiences on how these new technologies have been successfully implemented in their own care centers, we all stand to reap tremendous benefits from their lessons learned,” said EMBS President, Bruce Wheeler.A portion of the proceeds from the Symposium will be donated to the Emily Jerry Foundation. Corporate and individual donations to the Foundation are encouraged – those interested in doing so during the HIMSS conference can make a donation at the IEEE kiosk at the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion (Hall E, Booth 8265), online at emilyjerryfoundation.org, or by mail with checks payable to The Emily Jerry Foundation, 7665 Mentor Ave., Suite 343, Mentor, Ohio, 44060.
