Malaffi - The role of Connected Healthcare in Patient safety

Malaffi

Overview

Highlighting the need for connected and comprehensive longitudinal patient information provided to all the care teams across the care continuum as an essential part of the patients’ care journey.

Often care information including significant medical history lives in silos with individual providers and the clinicians are not given tools to “connect all the dots” to provide the patient with the best care and prevent any harm due to medical interventions as a result of lack of information.

Connected healthcare helps piece together all this vital information and summarises it for the care team to provide best practice and efficient care delivery to the patient.

In this webinar, we look closely at the use cases and examples from frontline clinicians who have reported their success stories and shared with the Malaffi team and study how connected health has helped deliver better and more efficient care in various care settings -like the emergency department, inpatient care, complex care like oncology and outpatient care and future-gazing, on services and tools that connected Healthcare programmes like Malaffi can offer to further enhance patient safety.

Learning objectives

  • The Healthcare ecosystem and gaps in information sharing
  • Effect on patient care “a before and after look
  • Discuss success stories from clinicians
