Are HTM Benchmarks Still Relevant?

Matthew Dummert, Director of Healthcare Technology Management, Froedtert Health

In recent years there have been a number of changes in the HTM industry that had a direct impact on how we use our benchmarks. Productivity measures and financial performance have been impacted by regulatory changes related to required maintenance activities, safety concerns related to cleaning and disinfecting and IT trends in integration and cybersecurity. This session will identify key benchmarks, describe how they are used and show that we may need to start thinking about things a little differently to reflect these new industry trends.

3:30-4:30 p.m.

How to Get the Staffing You Need to Succeed

Alan Gresch, VP, Healthcare Strategy, Accruent

The vast majority of HTM departments today don’t have the staffing they need to do all the work that’s necessary. The staff shortage translates into one of two things … either there is critical work that is not getting done or you’re having to pay outside resources to do the work at a 40% to 50% premium. Neither of those scenarios is in an organization’s best interests. This session will show participants exactly what needs to be done to remedy that situation with real-life case studies that have proven to be successful in multiple organizations.

  • a deeper understanding on the importance and value of thoroughly investigating all related patient injuries and deaths
