This webinar is on November 2 from 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

BROCHURE

The near limitless and constantly evolving landscape of Internet of Things (IoT) devices make securing and managing these devices a top priority for healthcare organizations. Organizations need to devise a strategy to secure, manage, and educate end users on the inherent risk posed by these devices. To manage risk, organizations need to have visibility and policies in place to secure these exploitable devices.  Faculty will discuss the increasing threat and risk these devices present to a healthcare network and protected health information.  They will provide a live demonstration of an IoT device hack, the type of information that can be infiltrated and discuss why these devices are so attractive to hackers.  At the conclusion, Vikas and Dr. Morgan will offer strategies and tips for securing these devices, as well as safe use by both the IT staff and frontline staff that utilize these devices (infusion pumps, prescription carts, smart phones, mobile devices, echo dots) daily.
Target Audience: IT security analysts, IT directors, CIO's, CMO's, CNO's, physicians, nurses practitioners

Event Description:

This webinar is on November 7 from 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

BROCHURE

The Millennial generation is a force to be reckoned with. They are talented, innovative, entrepreneurial, and creative. They are also highly mobile and prone to job hopping. Retaining top talent is a key business imperative and old strategies are no longer effective. More than 60% of Millennials leave their company in less than three years and their turnover is greater than any other generation. No question they have their own style, attitudes, and beliefs. Unfortunately most companies don’t have a focused retention strategy to retain these important employees. The good news is that Millennials prefer to stay with the same company and they will if given the right environment and opportunities. There are strategies and tactics that can improve retention rates.

During this session, you will learn why Millennials and other employees stay or leave and learn practical techniques you can use to retain the best employees.

Target Audience: Hospital staff involved any aspect of the hiring and employee retention practices including staff managers and directors, executives and human resource and development professionals.

N C Quality Center hands logo denoting that this is a Quality Center meeting NCQC PSO Members Only: Safe Table: Managing Diabetic Patients Who Use Concentrated Insulin, November 8, 2017
When: Wednesday, November 8, 2017
Where: NCHA -- Cary, NC
Brochure: SafeTableFlyer_Concentrated Insulin_Nov017.pdf
Register:  Click here
Event Description:

THIS MEETING IS LIMITED TO MEMBERS OF THE NCQC PSO ONLY

Overview:

With so many concentrated insulin products available, it is critical that healthcare providers, diabetic educators and pharmacists develop reliable medication processes within and between healthcare settings to ensure effective insulin management. Correct conversion of concentrated insulins upon admission and discharge in conjunction with the hospital formulary can become a risk point for hypoglycemia as seen in our patient safety platform events. Come join us and share your events so all of us can learn how to identify and mitigate risk with concentrated insulins.

A Safe Table provides a forum for NCQC PSO members to network and exchange patient safety experiences and best practices in an open, uninhibited and legally protected environment. Most importantly, it helps build a strong and supportive patient safety community where collective learning is valued and collegial relationships are supported and encouraged.

Safe Tables are legally protected under the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 that allow health care providers to convene and have open dialogue about patient safety and quality of care issues. All attendees are required to sign confidentiality agreements and all information shared will remain confidential and privileged.

Attendees should bring 1 or 2 de-identified events that occurred in their organization to share in an open discussion. Remove any patient or provider identifiable information. The Safe Table discussions take place within the NCQC Patient Safety Evaluation System to encourage open and robust dialogue about these events and what can be done to prevent them without fear of discovery.  Also bring your prescribing protocols for discussion!

Event Description:

This webinar is on November 7 from 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

BROCHURE

This program will discuss the final surveyor worksheet for assessing compliance with the CMS hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for discharge planning. Not only is discharge planning important to ensure compliance, but also reimbursement. This session will be beneficial for hospitals as well as Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs). These changes will also impact hospitals, home health agencies, inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing facilities, and long term care hospitals.

Our speaker will examine the IMPACT Act, discharge planning deficiencies and problematic areas. Sue will also cover physician dictation guidelines as well as various CMS standards for discharge planning. She will review new items noted in the CMS memo, including advisory practices for “blue boxes,” to improve patient outcomes, causes of preventable readmissions, inpatients vs. outpatients as well as detailed information about the discharge planning process.

Target Audience: Anyone involved with discharge planning, including, but not limited to, transitional care staff, physicians, all nurses with direct patient care, nurse educators, and risk management staff, performance improvement coordinators, and anyone involved with redesigning the discharge process to prevent unnecessary readmissions should attend.
