Abstract: Continuous patient monitoring systems have shown potential to assist clinical staff in earlier detection and prevention of unexpected deterioration in acute care patients, but implementing into staff workflow may present challenges that limit projected benefits. This podium presentation will demonstrate potential implementation barriers and processes for promoting adoption and effective use of a continuous monitoring system in the often hectic and ever-changing acute care setting.
Learning Objective 1: After participating in this session, the learner should be better able to understand potential barriers to successful implementation of innovative tools and procedures.
Learning Objective 2: After participating in this session, the learner should be better able to understand processes for promoting adoption and effective use of continuous patient monitoring systems.
