On-Demand Event: How data and tech can help build better care workflows
Cardiac telemetry tracks vital patient data to anticipate and prevent adverse outcomes. However, the misuse of telemetry may delay admissions and/or transfers, increase costs of care, create an additional cognitive burden for clinicians, and overstimulate patients. With these factors in mind, we need to take a closer look at the use of this technology to ensure it optimizes patient care.
If hospitals are able to sustainably incorporate the 2017 AHA guideline recommendations into their standard of care guidelines and practices, the right patients are more likely to be prescribed telemetry and removed from it in a timely manner. These are essential considerations during any digital transformation initiative.
Join Dr. Kannan Mutharasan, a cardiologist and the medical director at Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute, Angela Murray, BScN, MN, and executive director of Global HEOR at Baxter Healthcare, and DHI’s managing editor, Wendy Almeida, as they discuss clinical telemetry research and the path forward to improve telemetry workflows at your hospital.
