The successful and informative Webinar Wednesday series is back for its sixth season in 2020. The first session of the new year was sponsored by Nuvolo and attendees were eligible to receive 1 CE credit from ACI.
“Evaluating Contract Transitions and Project ROI with a Focus on Data Governance” was presented by Dustin Smith, director of central support, clinical engineering at Intermountain Healthcare and Kyle Holetz, senior solution consultant at Nuvolo. They discussed what is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of vendor contracts and transition plans with a focus on data governance. This included the setup of business processes and workflows in and out of the CMMS to capture the data elements needed to properly measure contract effectiveness and a department’s success.
The webinar was popular with 153 attendees for the live presentation and more have viewed a recording of the webinar online. Attendees gave positive reviews in a post-webinar survey and answered the question “Why did you attend today’s webinar? And, was it worth your time?”
“I wanted to hear their approach for contract decisions and how they arrive at that point. Definitely worth the time, reinforced the need for good data,” said Biomed V. Schill-Mason.
“VA is transitioning to Nuvolo, so I was interested in hearing how data could be used,” Clinical Engineer C. Mahoney said.
“To keep current with trends in the industry and maintain certification CEUs,” said P. Graham, manager, IT clinical engineering.
“It provides additional learning. Yes, since attending webinars will keep you updated with the latest trend of technology and also acquiring the continuous professional development,” Biomedical Engineer E. Gonzales said.
“Hunger for new information. And yes it is always worth attending,” shared R. Mesropyan, CBET.
“I try to never miss a webinar if I’m not doing something else over my lunch hour. It was worth seeing how other biomedical groups handle their data, and what steps would be if we were to go to a better system,” said Biomedical Technologist O. Stephen.
“I am now involved with maintaining contracts, so it was worth my time,” said E. Bican, lead technician clinical engineering.
“We are always balancing contracts with in-house service and are always transitioning between the two with all our medical equipment constantly being moved around the U.S. This webinar helped tie some of these details together,” Field Service Engineer K. Saager said.
“My boss invited me to this webinar and I accepted. I thought it was well worth my time. I got to see the other side of business applications from the business perspective rather than the technician side only,” Clinical Engineer G. Huber said.
