Transforming Clinical Operations with Digital: Webinar Series

AVIA

Leveraging Digital to Make Your Clinical Assets Work For You, Not Against You

June 23, 2021, 12 – 1:30 PM CT 

Do you know how many medical devices you have across your system and which ones need to be replaced? Most organizations utilize only 40-45% of the assets in their inventory on a daily basis with “peak” daily utilization hitting 60-65% utilization. Despite this, medical equipment can represent 25% of annual capital expense.

Digital clinical asset management solutions are designed to optimize asset utilization, drive cost savings, and protect against growing cybersecurity threats. In this webinar, leading health systems and their digital solution partners will discuss the benefits of clinical asset management and how to create a secure, robust and results-driven medical device management program.  #ReshapeClinicalAssetMgmt

Care Orchestration and Command Centers: Transforming Care Across the Continuum

June 2, 2021, 1 – 2 PM CT

Orchestrating care and improving communication across a health system is an imperative to provide safe, efficient and effective care across the continuum.

Health systems with an automated command center can see up to $40 million in savings, reduce transfer delays by 70% post-procedure, and increase the speed of bed assignments from the ED by 30%. Command centers driven by automation are combating these losses, transforming day-to-day operations to provide seamless orchestration of care. In this webinar, industry experts from AVIA, Tampa General Hospital, St. Luke’s University Health Network, and a leading solution company will discuss their innovative approach to command centers and explore the future of care orchestration.  #TransformingCareDelivery
