We have been on a bit of a summer hiatus here at Healthcare Tech Talk, but we are back in the editing room and ready to begin publishing new episodes.

Today though we present to you an important episode of the AAMI Podcast. If you enjoy it please subscribe to the show.

Hospitals are under pressure to draft and implement comprehensive policies that show they have a handle on the crucial patient safety issue of alarm fatigue. There’s been an explosion in the number of medical devices with alarms and alerts, resulting in a noisy healthcare setting and desensitizing clinicians to the meaning or importance of alarms. With more alarms going off, the intended goal of alerting clinicians to true emergencies has been diminished, and patient safety has been imperiled. Ronald Wyatt, MD, the patient safety officer and medical director at The Joint Commission and Maria Cvach, DNP, CCRN, director of policy management and integration for the Johns Hopkins Health System in Baltimore, MD,  talk about what hospitals should be doing—and how they can make a positive difference with effective clinical alarm management. Sponsored by Spacelabs Healthcare.

A string of recent, highly publicized "Ransomware" attacks have many healthcare organizations and their vendors scrambling to protect themselves and spurred the FBI to publish a Flash Alert.

These attacks are a fairly new paradigm for hospitals after years of protecting themselves from the theft of patient information, hospitals now must worry about the encryption and potential destruction of their data.

These attacks seem to be cruder and easier to carry out, but could be even more disruptive and damaging to a healthcare organization.

Today we talk with two experts about how organizations can begin taking the fundamental steps required to protect themselves.

  • Brad Taylor is CEO of Proficio, a leading Managed Security Services Provider. He has 20+ years’ experience in creating services that safeguard enterprise networks against cyber threats, with strong focus on healthcare environments and highly regulated industries. 

  • Adam Laub, Senior Vice President, Product Marketing, STEALTHbits Technologies. He is responsible for setting product strategy, defining future roadmap, driving strategic sales engagements, supporting demand generation activities, enabling the sales organization and all aspects of product evangelism.

In 1956 the first practical implementation of a paging system was setup to pager physicians in New York.  Fast forward 60 years and pagers seem to be making healthcare their final stand.

The modern healthcare environment is much more demanding and complex than in 1956.  Alerts from clinical systems, order notifications from the EMR and messages between clinicians not only need to be routed properly, they need to be acknowledged.

Today we talk with Marc Ladin, Chief Marketing Officer of Tiger Text, about a recent study regarding the Hidden Cost of Pagers in Healthcare and the possibilities of a secure messaging platform.

Many Healthcare organizations have had love hate relationship with Social Media given privacy concerns, the belief the that social media is what you do in your spare time and other reasons.  In fact many of us can remember when access was blocked for every computer in our organization.  You have to meet your patients where they are though and increasingly that is on Social Media.

In this episode, recorded at HIMSS16, we talk with Jan Oldenburg about various strategies that Healthcare organizations can use to get the most out of their Social Media engagement efforts.

Far too often Healthcare providers aren’t talking to each other – patients don’t know this. If you visit the ER, does your Primary Care Physician have a clue, does your dialysis provider? Are you sure?

In this episode we are joined by Joseph Mayer, MD. He is the co-founder and CEO of Cureatr, which provides seamless communication between doctors, streamlined workflows and real-time mobile push notifications to alert care providers when their patients are treated in any care setting within their region.

Joe's inspiration to start Cureatr came during his residency at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan. Immersed in the fast-paced ER, he lived the time-delay frustration of tracking down primary care physicians to alert them about patient treatment. He knew that he could speed this communication, reduce admin work to save time, human resources and dollars.

Joe launched the pilot for Cureatr while at Mt. Sinai and his quick expansion, with a national presence on the near horizon, coincided with the seismic healthcare shift of fee-for-service to value-based. Healthcare providers, in this new landscape of risk and responsibility, need a seamless approach for better care coordination among a community of care providers.
