Visit BD in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase

Discover the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase – a premier area in the HIMSS Conference Exhibition that demonstrates the interoperability imperative for connecting health and care. Learn more about the latest innovative solutions from BD and exchange ideas and best practices.

Improving Health Through Interoperability and Information Sharing

Speaker: W. Glenn Hilburn, MBA, RN, CPHIMS, VP Clinical Systems, Grady Health System
Date: Tuesday, March 6
Time: 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Location: HIMSS Interoperability Showcase, Level 1, Hall G, booth 11955

Clinicians have access to more data than ever before. As the amount of available data continues to multiply, so does the need for interoperability. In healthcare, not having access to the big picture isn’t simply a missed opportunity as it is in the business world; it’s a matter of life and death. This program will share how the Grady Health System has leveraged interoperability to connect disparate systems, devices and ultimately clinicians in pursuit of improved patient outcomes and enhanced clinician efficiency.

Sustaining barcoding for safety in IV infusion administration

Speaker: Kara Marx, RN, FACHE, FHIMSS, VP IS, Sharp HealthCare
Date: Thursday, March 8
Time: 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Location: Venetian Convention Center, Lando 4301
Session ID: 224

Sharp HealthCare is one of the early adopters in interoperability technologies, aiming to achieve safer patient outcomes as well as provide innovative clinician workflow. In August 2015, Sharp HealthCare embarked on the journey to bring barcoding for safety technology to the IV infusion world. Within 2 years, Sharp had taken all 5 hospitals live with this technology, using Cerner EMR and BD Alaris Smart Pump. Focusing on Sharp’s goal of High Reliability Organization, the teams of IT and Informatics professional continue to analyze, learn from the data to continue to refine workflow processes to drive better outcomes every day.

Learning Objectives
1. Describe the main activities that contribute to the success of implementation and adoption of barcoding for safety technology for infusion
2. Apply the knowledge gained from Sharp HealthCare experiences, to formulate your own recipe for affective adoption of EMR-Smart Pump Interoperability
3. Join the discussion of establishing benchmark and analytics post technology implementation to promote better patient outcomes in medication management

From big data to big knowledge: optimizing medication management

Speakers: David Webster, RPh, MSBA, Assoc Dir Pharmacy Operations, University of Rochester Medical Center; Maria Schutt, Director, Education and Optimization Services, BD
Date: Wednesday, March 7
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Location: Venetian Convention Center, Palazzo D
Session ID: 157

Managing medication inventory across complex hospital operations requires medications to be available when and where needed. Pressures on medication budgets demand new strategies to ensure medication availability at the lowest cost. Learn how one health system leveraged national benchmarking to identify opportunities for workflow improvements, used reporting to monitor compliance, and predictive analytics to intelligently set inventory levels that maximize availability while dramatically reducing medication waste and overall cost to deliver medications.

Securing medication use analytics and surveillance in the cloud

Speakers: Richard S. Schaefer, PharmD, Clinical Pharmacy Informatics Program Manager, Kansas City VA Medical Center; Shauna R. Leonard, PharmD, Chief Pharmacy Service, Kansas City VA Medical Center
Date: Wednesday, March 7
Time: 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Location: Venetian Convention Center, Marcello 4401
Session ID: 171

The Kansas City Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is implementing elements of the analytic and surveillance system in the cloud using an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model. This system will address the needs of standardization of care in the VHA’s Ambulatory Care system, improving clinic workflow, efficiency and access to care, as well as improving Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) performance metrics. Deploying in the cloud will allow the VHA to benefit from state-of-the-art cybersecurity measures implemented by the cloud provider, enhancing patient data security while complying with industry standards in data protection. With an IaaS model, one core managed set of VM’s will support the current and future analytic and surveillance needs, significantly containing our cost.
