Technology’s part in enhancing clinical care

On 14 March, as part of an IHEEM North-West Branch event, members were given an exclusive pre-launch tour of what the two Company Affiliates who have jointly established the facility – MIG Medical and Dräger Medical – say is ‘a ground-breaking’ Healthcare Innovation Centre, at Union House, Altrincham. Subjects covered in the day’s accompanying presentations included technology’s part in enhancing clinical care, effective alarm management in critical care settings, a new open standard that enables connectivity across medical devices, and regulations for working at height and in confined spaces. HEJ reports.

The 'state-of-the-art' showroom features a fully equipped operating theatre and ICU facility designed 'to inspire and facilitate collaboration' within the healthcare industry. The impressive new facility played host to the IHEEM North-West Branch's latest meeting, with members given early access to this innovation hub, providing them with the unique opportunity to explore the facility before its official opening later in the year. The Branch Chair, Alistair Cameron, and IHEEM President, Alison Ryan, were among the attendees.
