Minimizing the Spread of Infectious Diseases in Patient Care Facilities

Technology is a top consideration for many healthcare providers as a way to improve the patient experience. Everything from remote, contactless check-in, to informational kiosks, and physician charts have been digitized with the goal of speeding up delivery of care and improving patient outcomes. Physical interaction with technology in patient care facilities is unavoidable. Devices like IV Pumps, EKG Machines and more have served patients and caregivers for a long time.

While healthcare has a long history of developing cleaning procedures to address these devices as a possible vector for the spread of pathogens, the current pandemic has broadened the concern to include more devices. Having a technology approach that allows for the safe handling by patients and caregivers is critical to reducing the risk associated with the daily handling of devices.

In this webinar, you will hear from healthcare experts on the solutions available to address the delivery of positive patient experiences using technology and the verticalized solutions available to reduce the spread of pathogens.

    Challenges range from AI issues like model drift, bias, locality, and explainability, to data issues like privacy, compliance, scalability, and quality, all the way to changing the behavior of physicians and patients to take advantage of new capabilities. This session will explore the most current lessons learned, best practices, and known risks in applying state-of-the-art NLP & AI techniques in real-world healthcare projects.

    What attendees will learn:

    • What new capabilities and potential benefits do new advances in NLP & AI enable?
    • What are the most common obstacles and mistakes that teams make in trying to apply these capabilities?
    • What are known best practices and lessons learned that you should apply in your next project?
