Bernoulli to Host Focus Group at CHIME16 Fall CIO Forum

Chime16: real-time healthcare will require new IT capabilities, organizational adaptation and clinician acceptance of new tools.

MILFORD, CT—November 1, 2016 – Analysts have stressed the importance of hospitals providing the right information, at the right time, in the right format and to the right audience to enable value-based care. Achieving real-time healthcare will require new IT capabilities, organizational adaptation and clinician acceptance of new tools.

At the CHIME16 Fall CIO Forum in Phoenix, AZ, Nov. 1-4, Bernoulli, the leader in vendor-neutral, real-time device connectivity, clinical surveillance monitoring and advanced alarm management will host a focus group session on the opportunities and challenges of enabling real-time healthcare to improve clinical outcomes, reduce care costs and increase patient satisfaction.

“The development of mobile workflows, adoption of predictive analytics, and technology acceptance by the medical staff are examples of the challenges and opportunities health IT leaders will face,” said Bernoulli CEO Janet Dillione. “This unique setting allows us to engage with IT leaders on the frontlines, hear how they are approaching and adapting to healthcare’s rapidly changing landscape, and learn the real costs and considerations they face in finding a solution to their hospital’s unique challenges.”

The forum brings together a select group of hospital CIOs to explore answers to complicated questions, such as how real-time healthcare fits with existing health IT strategies and priorities, and what will it take to be successful.

Bernoulli will review relevant learnings from a recent pilot of continuous monitoring, as well as data from an IRB study of smart alarms for patients receiving opioids. The focus group will also explore best practices in user experience maximization, impact of these applications to drive clinical improvements and patient-centered care, and ways to leverage these trends to drive efficiency in clinical workflow.

The CHIME CIO Forum brings together health IT executives and chief information officers, is hosted by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME).

AAMI Foundation Patient Safety Event

AAMIRepresentatives from Bernoulli and its client, the Hospital for Special Care (HSC), joined 100+ attendees and 18 leading healthcare organizations at the AAMI Foundation’s regional meeting in Chicago. The two-day conference featured presentations on continuous monitoring of patients receiving opioids, alarm management and improvements to infusion therapy safety.

Connie Dills, MBA, RRT, RPFT, Respiratory Practice Manager at HSC, a Connecticut-based long-term acute-care (LTAC) hospital, delivered an insightful presentation detailing the success the hospital has had using the Bernoulli One™ platform to reduce and manage alarms on more than 100 ventilators in their facility. Results cited in Ms. Dills presentation included:

  • An 80% reduction in ventilator alarms that require clinical action
  • Enhanced ventilator alarm response time
  • No serious ventilator-related safety events in more than 13 years
