Medical device connectivity can help hospitals meet the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services EHR Meaningful Use criteria in an efficient manner.

This 90-minute web conference features presentations by ECRI Institute experts focusing on how healthcare facilities can plan for successful medical device integration. Presenters will discuss best practices for connecting physiologic monitors, vital signs monitors, and infusion pumps to EHRs and hospital information systems, and more.

Presenters will provide:

  • Tools and resources for planning connectivity projects
