Alarm management has always been, and continues to be, a high priority for Healthcare Technology Managers. Clinical alarms have made the list of the ECRI Institute’s “Top 10 Health Technology Hazards” for several years now, making it one of the most researched and worked on initiatives in hospitals. The presenter will address the long journey of clinical alarms in health care, review specific case studies as well as share resources and tools to support the ongoing National Patient Safety Goals from The Joint Comission.
