ACCE Educational Webinar Series Patient Safety and Managing Recalls
When an adverse event happens that injures a staff member and/or patient, the Biomedical Engineering department will be consulted for information regarding this device. Maintenance records, program details and technical advice will be offered to the involved parties to formulate a root cause. Having a robust and effective recall and medical equipment management programs assist in offering advice and potentially minimizing the occurrence of adverse events.

7:00 AM-10:30 AM
Clinical Engineering Symposium by ACCE: Managing and Securing Medical Devices in the Home and Non-traditional Environments. Sponsored by Asimily & Symantec
Description: Changing demographics and care delivery models, the desire to reduce costs, and the evolution of new medical technologies have resulted in devices migrating from traditional hospital settings into patient homes and other non-traditional environments (e.g., offices, schools). These new environments are more difficult to secure and manage with respect to device security and data privacy. Both the security and privacy risks are likely to be even greater in the more loosely controlled environments and in the movement between disparate environments.
Location: Long Beach Convention Center
Faculty: Steve Abrahamson, GE Healthcare; Stephen Grimes, Strategic Healthcare Technology Associates;Axel Wirth, Symantec Corporation &
