Eng. Tom Judd: Total Cost Ownership (2 Hours Workshop)

This workshop will address the real costof medical device and system ownership in 21st Century healthcare.  Itwill review the historical TCO and Life Cycle Cost (LCC) cost analysis modelsfor traditional medical devices as well as the emerging CE-IT new devices andsystems.  The presenter will provide numerous examples from his recent25-year experience with Kaiser Permanente, a global leader in HTM, CE-IT andeHealth.  CE-IT examples incorporate WHO/PAHO's work where "eHealth is the use of information and communication technologies (ICT)for health." See  Examples of newer CE-IT and ICT systems and tools includemHealth, the Internet of Things (IoT), and Cloud Computing.  This sessionwill prepare CEs for important connections and partnerships with health leadersin coming years.

Dr. Yadin David: HospitalIntegrated Networks Risk Management Issues and Recommendations (2 hours Workshop)

Risk is inherent in organizations ofall shapes and sizes. In healthcare delivery, the goal is to define the riskand apply safeguards to prevent risk from causing unintended consequences. Ofthe roles that clinical engineers practice perhaps system’s risk Management isthe most critical one.

This workshop will introduce principals of integratedhealthcare IT networks, integration of medical devices into these networks, andthe benefits and risks of medical devices integration. It will incorporate thestrategy addressed by IEC 80001 standard: risk management for networksincorporating medical devices and the challenges that it covers. The workshopwill include introduction to risk management, identification of system risks,roles and responsibilities, and the management of the system. It will provideunderstanding of the process of implementing integrated medical technologysystem that minimizes risk, maximizes efficiency, and provides for continuedsafe operation. The workshop will conclude with an exercise applyingrisk management concepts, and provides lessons learned for sustaining safeintegrated systems including in the wireless networked environments.

Dr. Binseng Wang:  Application of Quality, Risk & AssetManagement Principles to Clinical Engineering (3 hours workshop)

First, theconcepts and methods of quality, risk, and asset management applicable to anyindustry will be presented to provide a common foundation for allparticipants.  Next, through a series ofsmall group exercises, the attendees will learn how to apply these concepts andmethods to three basic elements of Clinical Engineering: (1) Strategictechnology incorporation, (2) Evidence-based scheduled maintenance, and (3)Evidence-based corrective maintenance. Discussion of the results obtained from each group will allow theattendees to see how they can take home lessons that can be immediately appliedto their own organizations.
