Disinfection Protocols for Healthcare IT Equipment – Help Reduce HAIs and Safe

With the surge in EMR usage, keyboards and PCs are used widely in clinical care settings. But unlike medical equipment and high-touch environmental surfaces, these IT devices are rarely subject to infection prevention standards. Studies have demonstrated that over 80% of these devices might have significant microbial contamination which may include nosocomial pathogens like vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus species (VRE). Coupled with low (40%) compliance with the CDC's guidelines on hand hygiene, these ubiquitous computers and keyboards can lead to cross-contamination of patients.

At this webinar, infection prevention experts working on behalf of APIC (Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology) Consulting Services will discuss the risk that contaminated IT devices can pose in the transmission of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Will also review cleaning and disinfection protocols that have been created by APIC Consulting Services for HP.

  • Endpoint Protection Strategies for the Post-COVID World Recorded: Nov 12 2020 50 mins
    Dan Allen, Vice President, Mazi Arzanpouli, Senior Director, HP Security Services
    The Best Defense is a Good Offense: Endpoint Protection Strategies for the Post-COVID World

    The way we all work, learn, and play has been forever altered in recent months – and change came faster than we ever imagined. Companies have been forced to shift IT priorities to support an abrupt and unplanned shift to a nearly 100% remote workforce, during which pandemic-related cyberthreats grew over 60% -- further stretching the widening gap of 4 million unfilled cybersecurity professionals across the industry.

    In this already strained environment, can your business risk the time it will take for endpoint detection and remediation when faced with a cyberattack? With the average cost of a successful attack pushing $9 million, can you afford to take a chance with traditional antivirus – which over a third of employees typically fail to update – and that can’t detect zero-day threats? Is there time to wait for security patches that can take over three months to deploy?

    CISOs that take a protection-first approach to endpoint security can avoid costly breaches all together, and allow IT to stay focused on more strategic initiatives for your business. Join us to get a better understanding of:

    • How your business is left exposed by traditional anti-virus and EDR solutions
    • Why taking a protection-first approach to endpoint security is the best strategy to keeping employees productive and secure
    • Improving the security posture of your organization without impacting employee satisfaction or increasing IT workloads
    • Supporting workplace transformation with less risk
    • Balancing limited security resources against expanding IT responsibilities
    • Effective solutions right-sized for organizations of any level of security maturity, expertise and IT staff size

  • Improving Patient Safety: The Implications of Internet of Things (IoT) Recorded: Oct 29 2020 56 mins
    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that hospitals are responsible for 1.7 million Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) in the U.S. resulting in 99,000 associated deaths , more annually than those who die from car accidents in the United States. Moreover, in Canada 220,000 patients were affected with HAIs resulting in 12,000 deaths.
    Given the exponential growth of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in the hospital environment, it is essential that healthcare professionals are aware of the significance of infectious vectors on wearables and other IoT devices and how they can improve patient safety, without compromising the devices' integrity in the process.

    In this critical webinar, Dr. Sean Spina will share his team’s approach to the investigation into the cleaning methods of smartphones and wearables from infectious contamination in a patient care environment (ISWIPE). Daniel Colling from HP will also speak to the challenges for driving policy for infection prevention and control of IT devices and related electromagnetic interference challenges from IoT devices that impact patients and shared patient environments.

    Learning points include:
    - The importance of formalized, structured evaluations of new technologies in healthcare settings
    - The infectious implications and risks of using smartphones and wearable devices in a healthcare setting
    - Methods of evaluating multiple vector threats for mitigating contamination and the spread of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs)
    - Providing safe electronics around sensitive equipment and high-risk patients

  • The Remote Research Enterprise, Part II Recorded: Oct 20 2020 61 mins
    Host: Francie Diep | HP Speaker: Mike Belcher
    In the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak, universities have quickly shifted their classes online. But opening up research, labs, and ongoing scientific experiments to remote possibilities is a much harder task. In this two-part forum we’ll discuss how institutions are assessing what research fields can best make such a transition, how they plan for research continuity given the uncertainty of the pandemic, and how to make sure faculty have access to critical data sets and computing power when the campus is closed. The first session will explore the immediate challenge of the pivot to conducting research remotely, what tools are being made available to help, and how to maintain security of important data. This second session will look at the near future. As colleges potentially reopen campus, or at least parts of campus, how do labs and research resources factor in? And how do key funding sources, such as the National Science Foundation and other federal programs, help or hurt that planning. Hosted by Francie Diep, The Chronicle’s top writer on university research, the discussion would include top scientific experts and administrators to offer advice on how to navigate the challenging times.​
