The most recent Webinar Wednesday session, sponsored by Nuvolo, featured Kyle Holetz, Senior Solution Consultant. Attendees were able to earn 1 CE credit from the ACI for this 60-minute session entitled “Clinical Asset Management: AEM Scheduling and Device Risk Scoring Solution.”
Holetz discussed how implementing an Alternative Equipment Maintenance (AEM) program can improve the effectiveness of a clinical engineering team, but doing so can consume more resources than it saves with legacy CMMS technology. He then demonstrated modern HTM software technology that includes built-in AEM automation functionality that delivers the data-driven AEM program for teams to leverage, saving time and effort.
The webinar had 246 attendees for the live presentation, and the session received an attendee rating of 3.7 on a 5-point scale with 5 being the best possible rating.
Attendees filled out a post-webinar survey in which they were asked, “How much new information did you receive from today’s webinar?”
“I enjoyed seeing Nuvolo’s solution to AEM and learned more about the product,” Clinical Engineer C. Mahoney said.
“It was great to see the CMMS take a lot of the work out of determining the effectiveness of an AEM program” said S. Keeny, Biomedical Supervisor.
“Refreshed some older understanding and introduced some newish concepts. Looking forward to more scoop on that CMS/Service study on effectiveness of AEM in the clinical arena. We used some elements of this concept as far back as the early 90’s when I was a hospital biomed. Effort to increase utilization was very high back then. Looks like strides have been made,” Principal FSE H. Tucker said.
“It was very informative concerning the AEM programs being implemented and how the schedule change is being justified,” said J. Vogel, Biomedical Technician III.
“As a student, I knew little about AEM until today’s webinar. Thanks!” student G. Satkally-McAdams stated.
“Some interesting ideas on patient safety and data trends,” said C. Aaron, Biomed Technician.
“This webinar was very informative. We are currently moving to AEM based PM scheduling and the presentation gave some valuable insight,” Lead Technician of Clinical Engineering E. Bican stated.
“As we already have an AEM, this information identified new gaps in our process and gave us insight into some opportunities moving forward,” said J. Newell, Interim Director of Clinical Engineering.
The next webinar will be on “Automating Medical Device Management,” sponsored by Medigate, on October 9.
