  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of physician assistants is expected to increase 30 percent from 2010 to 2020—must faster than the average for all occupations.

 The unSUMMIT
Booth #16102
The unSUMMIT

Conventional summits deliver a something-for-everyone survey of the landscape with little or no depth on any given topic. This warp-speed flight provides only a 30,000-foot view of the terrain below. Nurses, pharmacists, and IT professionals return to the trenches of their own hospitals no better equipped to dig in and implement change.

The unSUMMIT is different. It delivers a steadfast focus on barcode point-of-care technology. Attendees are outfitted with practical tools, insight, and inspiration for leading their institutions to carefully select, implement, and harness the quality-improvement power of BPOC systems.

Truly an unconventional convention, The unSUMMIT is designed to get you out of the clouds and into the weeds, where the union of technology and practice can be more easily realized through the shared expertise of your experienced colleagues.

About

The unSUMMIT is the premier educational event for hospitals interested in Barcoding at the Point of Care (BPOC). Since 2005, our mission has been to bring together those who shared our passion for patient safety and to provide them with an environment where that passion can develop into the best practice. Industry-wide overviews and process theories are useful starting points, but to affect real change, care providers need the tools and lessons gained from real-world experience.

Barcode point-of-care (BPOC) systems have been in use for 20 years yet fewer than 35% of hospitals are using this critical safety measure for medication administration. Hospitals cite numerous legitimate reasons for the lack of adoption including budget constraints, competing IT priorities, and the lack of unit dose barcoded drug packages. Yet too often hospitals cite unfounded reasons: technology unreadiness, a fear that BPOC will be replaced with RFID soon, nurse resistance, and a belief that the solutions are too costly and labor intensive.
