Warp Speed Scotty: The Future of Documentation During Transport

Mark Washam, RRT, RN, CEN Shriners Hospital for Children, Cincinnati, Ohio

This lecture will focus on what is currently in the near future for documentation of patient care in the transport environment and what the speaker thinks the future might hold. It will be a humorous and sometimes irreverent look at where technology and regulations will take us in the future.
Participants will be able to:
? Name at least three technologies affecting transport documentation
? Have an understanding of how new federal regulations affect documentation
? Understand how to start the process of evaluating clinical information documentation systems and how they can help patients and caregivers
? Have an understanding of what future technology the speaker thinks will change the way we document care for all of our patients and why changes are coming at WARP speed
