August 5, 1pm CST | Infection Control & Prevention:  A Pro-Active Approach, Presenter:  Cheryl Scalzo, RN, Real-Time Medical Systems
The emergence of COVID-19 has shed a bright light on Infection Control and Prevention (ICP) in nursing facilities. With clinical teams already stretched beyond their limits and flu season lurking around the corner, successful facilities are leaning on technology to help drive their ICP efforts.

Early detection of infectious disease is essential when trying to avoid an outbreak. Learn how technology is allowing clinicians to take a pro-active approach to infection control by using already existing EHR data to highlight the most subtle of changes in resident condition in real time, calling out the warning signs and symptoms of potential infection. We’ll also explore the ability technology offers to easily create a facility-wide centralized infectious disease monitoring system and offer insights into time-saving techniques to get your team to the bedside quicker.

Additionally, we’ll uncover how the use of technology can help to reassure the families you serve that their loved ones are in a facility that is proactively taking steps to avoid potential outbreaks, days in advance.
