ACCE Educational Webinar Series Panel Discussion for Supporting and Replacing Out-of-Support OS
There is still no clear definition for legacy equipment nor is there a simple solution to the problem of supporting equipment with an out-of-support operating system. Replacement may simply not be an option due to the associated capital cost and even the latest equipment may present similar challenges. Supporting older equipment can quickly become problematic and practical steps are required to manage this burden, after all, one of the biggest examples with Windows 7 end-of-support is fast approaching. As an industry we need to discuss this issue and come up with actionable solutions for HTM.

ACCE Educational Webinar Series Incident Investigation in the Hospital
Medical device incident investigation in the hospital is part of the culture of safety. When safety events occur in the hospital, a series of actions take place to ensure the patient and staff are safe, and the events are analyzed/investigated and reported accordingly. Reporting can be internal, within the hospital or external to the manufacturer and FDA, depending on the type and severity of the event. Medical device reporting helps improve patient safety and meet regulatory requirements. HTM professionals typically carry out the analysis and investigation, or in certain situations, an outside consultant is hired to assist. In this webinar, we will review the steps that take place when an incident occur in the hospital which involves medical devices or clinical technology. We will also provide an overview of healthcare incidents, types of events, Outline of an institutional policy to include important elements, device regulation, and culture of safety. Case studies will also be presented as part of the webinar.
