Just returned from the 2018 American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) Congress, in Las Vegas, where we demonstrated the clinical surveillance capabilities of our Bernoulli One™ platform; engaged in energetic conversations with hundreds of respiratory care professionals; and attended a number of in-depth education sessions that drove the advancement of patient quality and safety. Here are the significant takeaways we drew from the Congress.

several years into my career, I began to notice that these little moments were being consumed by other tasks. I wondered how I was actually spending my time each shift—and it soon became apparent that most of my time was spent interfacing with technology in ways that were not helping me be a better caregiver to my patients.
It’s easy to consider a new hardware or software solution and imagine its transformative potential. But a poorly implemented system that did not evaluate the impact to the clinical workflow can just as easily exacerbate inefficiencies and reduce the overall quality of patient care.

The successful implementation of real-time patient safety initiatives has long been a goal of health system leaders. Unfortunately, parsing alarms from individual medical devices, reliance on physical spot checks of patients, and the lack of rules-based advanced analytics to assess a patient’s current condition in real-time or identify signs of deterioration puts that achievement out of reach for many hospitals and health systems.
