Clinically Integrated Facilities Track: Planning for Connected Medical Devices
Date & Time
Thursday, March 17, 2022, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

According to some estimates, within the next 10 years, more than 50 billion connected medical devices could be in use globally. For facility leaders, planning for increased connectivity goes beyond budgeting and purchasing the appropriate capital equipment. Other considerations include ensuring the appropriate stakeholders are involved and confirming each capital equipment purchase can be integrated with existing equipment. Join a panel of clinical engineers as they discuss how to plan for the widespread use of connected medical devices in your facilities, share approaches to gain buy-in from key stakeholders, and outline practical strategies to ensure connectivity between capital equipment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the considerations that should be used when evaluating new technology.
  2. Evaluate if today’s facilities should be designed with an overarching vision for the implementation of future technologies.
  3. Discuss best practices for establishing and maintaining stakeholder alignments for the duration of a project.
  4. Learn when to remove old technology and strategies to ensure connectivity with its replacement.
