The recent Webinar Wednesday session “Leveraging Data, Adding Value” was the latest presentation eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI.
The webinar, sponsored by Oxford Instruments Healthcare, featured John Garrett, a director of clinical engineering for Catholic Health Initiatives. Garrett discussed how using data already being collected, a hospital can make better decisions regarding service and equipment. He explored the various benefits of applying the basics of big data to practical application in the day-to-day operations of a medical center.
The webinar was well attended with 171 people viewing the live presentation. A recording of the webinar is available for on-demand viewing.
The reviews are in from a post-webinar survey and Garrett’s presentation was hit with HTM professionals!

“This webinar was helpful in understanding what management is looking at when they are making the decisions to not stock parts, PM kits all the way up to how they make the decisions to go with a contract or not. I see the need for better education for the technicians on their data entry,” said C. Davis-Ryan, CBET.
“It (the webinar) was very relevant to what I was trying to accomplish and helped me make definite strides into modifying my data analytics experience to the health care field. It helped understand the KPIs and how to harness them,” said S. Gundavarapu, business analyst.
“I’ve attended a lot of Webinar Wednesday and it’s always an exciting time because I know I’ll learn something to make me a better BMET and a better instructor, because some of these things I can apply to my job and to what I share with my students,” BMET Instructor J. Seriosa said.
“I always look forward to and enjoy Webinar Wednesday, as I always learn something new,” Manager of Biomedical Engineering G. Havens said.
