Top Ten Technology Care Hazards Including Electronic Health Records


 Session Overview

Enormous interest in Technology Adoption-Related Patient Safety issues including Electronic Health Records was revealed through polling of our National Research Test Bed. Also, please consider responding to the government's proposal to dramatically reduce the requirements of organizations to make medical records accessible. SEE VIDEO to find out how to respond.

To meet your needs, we are going to have two great speakers address the top 10 topics for patient safety, and the top 10 health technology issues, identified for 2015 by ECRI. No surprise that electronic record issues topped the lists. We will be polling the audience on the topics that can help you the most so we can address your needs over the next few months.

We are honored to have Dr. Greg Botz, Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, and Medical Director of the Simulation Center, at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center; and Dr. Perry Bechtle, Anesthesiologist at Mayo Clinic, and Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. Both are experts in patient safety innovation adoption who will address the 16 issues that come from the ECRI lists.

We will have a reactor panel representing biomedical engineering and consumer leaders who will round out the agenda.
