  • Taking Hospital Care Virtually

    Sep 15, 11:00 - 12:00 (CT)
    Taking Hospital Care Virtually Wednesday September 15, 2021, 11 am Central/12 noon Eastern ANIA Midwest will be hosting an educational webinar Taking Hospital Care Virtually presented by Scott Fenton, BSN, RN (Mayo Clinic at Jacksonville FL), Anna Sylla, BSN, RN (Mayo Clinic Health System in NWWI), and Holly Pretzman, MSN, RN, CPHIMS (Mayo Clinic Enterprise Quality).  Mayo Clinic was preparing to start a virtual hospital unit where patients can remain at home, but receive hospital level care utilizing available technology.  The pandemic caused by COVID-19 sped up the implementation of this virtual unit due to the concerns for bed capacity and staff to care for the increased patient load.  There was no instruction manual when it came to implementing a virtual hospital unit, but Mayo Clinic has worked to pave the way so patients can remain at home, but have personalized hospital care at their fingertips.   This allows providers to monitor patients for a longer period decreasing readmissions, increasing patient satisfaction, and reducing costs.  This innovative care model will be discussed in the webinar.  Learning Objectives include:  Describe the makings of a virtual hospital model Identify three phases of implementing a virtual hospital in the patient home Outline metrics that can be used to measure success of a virtual hospital model Pre-registration, email, session attendance, and survey completion are required for CE credit.  CE is offered in conjunction with Indiana University Health and provisioned by the Ohio Nurses Association.  The Ohio Nurses Association will award contact hours in adherence with ANCC criteria.  If the follow-up survey does not arrive as expected, please check your junk or spam folders (many organizations have strengthened security with external email).  Also consider using a personal email for registration of organizational firewalls prohibit delivery.    Join Zoom Meeting   Meeting ID: 869 3899 0479 Passcode: 051176 One tap mobile +13017158592,,86938990479#,,,,*051176# US (Washington DC) +13126266799,,86938990479#,,,,*051176# US (Chicago)   Dial by your location         +1 301 715 8592 US (Washington DC)         +1 312 626 6799 US (Chicago)         +1 646 558 8656 US (New York)         +1 253 215 8782 US (Tacoma)         +1 346 248 7799 US (Houston)         +1 669 900 9128 US (San Jose) Meeting ID: 869 3899 0479 Passcode: 051176 Find your local number:
