Standardizing High Performance Aerosol: How to Change the Protocol to Ensure Standardization of High Performance Aerosol

Aerogen is a high-performance vibrating mesh technology which turns liquid medication into a fine particle mist, gently and effectively delivering drugs to the lungs of patients of all ages. Aerogen’s emergency department product, the Aerogen Ultra, significantly improves aerosol drug delivery resulting in better patient care, ultimately increasing throughput in the emergency department. Through our roundtable discussion, we are interested in gathering insights from Emergency Medicine Directors on what it takes to change dosing protocols for nebulization and to understand how to move toward standardizing high-performance aerosol.

Title:
5 Cards to Keep a Full House: Effective Methods to Maximize Retention

Maintaining a complete corps of great clinicians is paramount for a medical director to function in his role properly and prevent many headaches as well as constantly begging his partners to fill empty shifts or working them him/herself. However, retention does not just “happen”—it takes a consistent process to prevent valuable people from being lured to other opportunities. Dr. Dabbs will share his wisdom of 20 years as a medical director, 10 years as president of a large EM division of TeamHealth, and 7 years as President of Practice Development where one of his responsibilities has been to create a Providers for Life program to improve retention.

Medical Scribes: Effective Solutions for the Emergency Department in a New Era of Healthcare

Today’s healthcare industry is riddled with complexities. Software that’s difficult to use. Data that isn’t actionable. Technology solutions that fail to communicate with one another. Care management practices that hinder rather than help…and the list goes on.

In this era of overly-complicated products and processes, ScribeAmerica, QueueLogix and CareThrough – the HealthChannels family of companies – enable providers to improve clinical outcomes by providing highly-skilled clerical support for EMR documentation, patient engagement, medical coding and much more.

Title:
Medical Scribes – Personalized, Cost Efficient Care in an Increasingly Complex Healthcare Environment

Provision of personalized, high quality, and cost efficient care in an increasingly complex healthcare environment requires new solutions.

Providers are under increasing pressure to deliver care in an environment where the increase in demand conflicts with limiting resources. Increased documentation, electronic documentation systems, and additional ancillary duties continue to take clinicians away from direct patient-care. Healthcare leaders are searching for solutions to bring doctors back to the bedside, drive productivity, and ultimately improve patient care.

Medical Scribes are one-on-one, real time, productivity personnel who help providers with ancillary duties during the clinical shift. These duties are customized for the provider’s needs and usually include real-time documentation, facilitating access to investigation results, and assistance with patient flow.
