    Presentation Title: 

    Close loop medication administration: from patient benefit to epic fails!


    Presentation synopsis:

    This presentation will use the case study of the implementation of a closed loop administration solution at the Galway Clinic to highlight the positive impact from such a system on patient care. Examples of real time clinical decision support as well as clinical analytics with a proven impact on patient care will be provided. Since no project is complete without its share of failures, the speaker will also go through some of the “learnings” acquired during  the implementation, “learnings” that could only be described as “epic fails” in today’s standards.
