ACCE Educational Webinar Series Service Contracts and Continuous OEM Training, How to Leverage Cost Effective Agreement
Service contracts prove to be a financial investment of healthcare systems to maximize uptime and provide continuous support. Additionally, reoccurring training provides immense benefits to the success of a medical equipment management program (MEMP) but requires money to upkeep. In this session, we aim to provide ideas for methodologies Biomedical Engineering programs can implement to maximize vendor support without burdening the healthcare system financially.

ACCE Education Session#272 (HIMSS18): Partnering for Medical Device Security and Patient Safety
Description: As healthcare has become more dependent on applications and software, and medical devices are getting networked and integrated, attacks previously targeted for IT systems are now a possibility for medical devices. Such attacks may place mission-critical (and sometimes life critical) systems in jeopardy. The focus of this session will be to discuss a few areas of opportunity for IT and Clinical Engineering to partner on management privacy and security areas including policies and management techniques for server management, patching, and MDS2 (manufacturer disclosure statement for medical device security) documents.

ACCE Educational Webinar Series C-Suite, IT and Biomed: The Three Pillars for a Successful Hospital
Relationships and communication between departments are key for a hospital to provide effective and safe patient care. The C-Suite, IT and Biomed each play a valuable role in the hospital, and the relationship between the departments will either “make or break” a hospital. In this session, we offer communication techniques and testimonials from the C-Suite, IT and Biomed departments outlining their experiences with the effects of communication.

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.

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.
