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.

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

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.

Improving Care Coordination through Digitization: One Healthcare Organization’s Steps for Success:
Clinician burnout is fast becoming an epidemic in the U.S. healthcare system. As noted in a recent Medical Economics survey, 68% of physician respondents reported feeling burned out at the moment, largely because of paperwork, regulatory demands and electronic health record (EHR) documentation.1 Such feelings are not limited to doctors: Nurses, too, are reporting high levels of emotional exhaustion and job dissatisfaction.2
To provide the highest quality care to patients, provider organizations need to complete the various – and often complex – steps involved not only to schedule surgeries, collaborate with specialists and provide outside referrals, but also to connect with local service, rehabilitation and social work agencies. The multi-faceted nature of many care coordination steps is not visible to the patient, but when they don’t occur, for whatever reason, patient satisfaction suffers.
This webinar will share Cape Cod Healthcare’s journey on how they overcame challenges involving care coordination and share best practices so that you can have the right information for the right people when and where you need it, to ensure the right engagement points happen and patients get the care they both expect and need.
- Best practices for implementing a secure patient information exchange platform to digitize paper-based clinical workflows
- Results and feedback from deployment of digital solution
- In current heightened landscape of increased pressure of clinician’s time, digitizing paper-based workflows can be scaled through automation
With HP, your IT team has the tools they need to let your people do what they do best. From protecting your data to getting the right devices to the right people. When your IT is at their best, so are your people.
Virtual reality (VR) and 3D print are being employed in healthcare with fantastic results. These emerging technologies make a way to create anatomical models that help surgeons prepare for complicated procedures. At the point of care, 3D models help patients better understand their diagnoses and procedures, in language laypeople can understand. Stephanie Starks, Founder and Co-Director of Heart Effect, can attest: A 3D model helped save her daughter’s life. Translating DICOM imaging to 3D printed models and VR leads to faster surgeries with less risk of infection and quicker recovery – a double win for patients and clinicians alike.
In this webinar, learn how to:
- Apply 3D printing and VR at the point of care to reduce surgery times, thereby lowering the risk of infection
- Compare and contrast 3D printing applications at the point of care with appropriate reimbursement models
-Understand how 3D printing and VR have the potential to show improved patient comprehension in informed consent for surgical procedures
