ROLLING HILLS ESTATES, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Second Annual Medical Device Connectivity Conference & Exhibition, organized by The Center for Business Innovation (TCBI), will be held on September 28-29, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay in San Diego, CA. This groundbreaking conference and exhibition features an outstanding agenda with nationally recognized experts from healthcare provider organizations, academia, manufacturers and elsewhere. The attendees will include high-level IT, clinical engineering and biomedical engineering executives from hospitals and healthcare systems across the US as well as representatives from medical device companies, consulting firms, academia, healthcare associations, health plans and government agencies.
About the Conference"The only conference devoted to the topic of medical device connectivity, the program will offer a unique opportunity to get immersed into every aspect of connectivity, workflow automation and enabling technologies. The keynotes and panel discussions on the first day frame the conference's focus on connectivity and tackle two of the biggest issues facing health care: industry standards and regulatory issues. Program tracks on the second day provide a survey of connectivity applications, clinical capabilities and outcomes, and explore the gap between regulated vendor-managed systems and the customer-managed and controlled environments in which these systems are used," says Tim Gee, Principal, Medical Connectivity Consulting, the conference chairperson and a keynote speaker.
Continued pressure to improve patient safety and outcomes, and the adoption of EMRs, are the principal drivers for connectivity today. Connectivity became more closely tied to EMR adoption as a requirement of meaningful use. In addition to the general scope of connectivity, this conference zeros in on the point of care, whether in the hospital, the patient's home, or anywhere in between.
Conference Supported by Major OrganizationsSupporting organizations of the conference include: the American College of Clinical Engineering (ACCE), Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI), Healthcare Technology Foundation, International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), RFID in Healthcare Consortium, West Wireless Health Institute and the Wi-Fi Alliance.
