Paul McGurgan, Excel’s National Program Director, Alarm Management, presented, “Utilizing Data to Make Evidence-Based Decisions in Alarm Management,” as a featured speaker in the Alarm Management Workshop, Part 1. McGurgan has published several articles on this topic in medical and health care technology trade journals.

McGurgan’s presentation discussed how Excel’s customers are using data driven approaches to illustrate the critical role it plays in the decision-making process for achieving better alarm management in hospital enterprises. Emerging solutions, such as Excel’s alarm analytics solution – Alarm Navigator was also discussed.

Excel’s BedMasterEx solution was a featured technology in the education session “Implementation Strategy and Benefits of Electronic Cardiac Strip Documentation,” presented by Rebecca E. Arthur, BSHA, Inova Health System, with Nicole Denham, RN, BSN, PCCN, COR Consultants, and Bonnie Matthews, RN, BSN, PCCN, COR Consultants.

Inova Health System has implemented the BedMasterEx solution to integrate with Inova’s Epic EHR to optimize cardiac monitoring and improve patient safety across the health system. The rollout of BedMasterEx with Inova will ultimately span all five Inova hospitals, representing more than 825 monitored beds.

BedMasterEx, helps automate the cardiac rhythm strip documentation process and ensures that the right cardiac strip is matched to the right patient’s electronic chart by eliminating the manual steps for paper data collection. Electronic maintenance of the cardiac waveforms also means that nurses and clinicians have access to patient data immediately, or retrospectively from hospital workstations or computer-on-wheels.
