Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Aventura, the company that makes clinicians’ work flow, today announced its involvement in the iHT2 Health IT Summit at the New York Academy of Medicine September 19-20. Through presentations and product demonstrations, the platinum-level sponsor will show how technology can help clinicians give better care when it’s efficient, mirrors their workflow, and allows them to more easily document in real time. Aventura leverages context- and location-aware intelligence to deliver the right information instantly based on clinician location and credentials. Hospitals using Aventura have reported $100,000 per month savings simply by making data more easily accessible to clinicians. Hospital IT professionals can experience the Aventura solution at booth #15 or in a private demonstration room at the conference.
T. (Teo) Forcht Dagi, MD, MPH, MBA, DMedSc., Aventura Chief Medical Officer, Board Member and partner at HLM Venture Partners, will participate in the panel Get Your Head in the Cloud: Delivering Data at the Point of Care along with five other healthcare executive leaders. The panel will outline the benefits and challenges of using cloud technology to support new delivery models and improve patient care with better information access from 1:30-2:35 p.m. on September 19.
“As hospitals implement new technology, they find that clinicians can spend up to 2 hours at the end of a day keying data into the computer,” said Dr. Dagi. “A large overtime cost is one unanticipated expense of these new systems, and more importantly, information is lost when it is not entered in real-time. This panel will focus on helping healthcare executives understand how to deliver data at the point of care, which is the quintessential linchpin to improving patient care and physician satisfaction.”
Aventura is also recommending iHT2 participants attend the case study Lessons from the Floor: Workflow Tips That Make Clinicians More Efficient on September 19 from 2:30-3:15 p.m. The unique “fireside chat” format features Barry Chaiken, MD, CMO of DocsNetwork Ltd. and Dr. Mary Horan, CMIO of UW Medicine/Northwest Hospital and Medical Center. The pair will make recommendations about how to make clinical computing environments more efficient through context- and location-aware technology.
Clinicians and IT professionals can see the Aventura clinical workflow solution at booth #15 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 19 and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 20 at New York Academy of Medicine, or they can schedule a personal demonstration by contacting Catherine Loop at Catherine.Loop(at)aventurahq(dot)com.
