Healthcare Education Assessment Training and Technology Event This August
HEATT, which stands for Healthcare Education Assessment Training and Technology, is having its first annual event this August in Orlando Florida. The goal of this meeting is to improve education and training to promote enhanced safety, efficiency, capacity and performance. Expanded objectives for this event will be formulated later this month at The Future of Healthcare Education and Training — at the CAMLS Center in Tampa, FL.
Friday 22 – Sunday 24 August 2014
Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, Orlando, Florida USA
What is HEATT?
HEATT is a major new event designed to bring together all those who contribute to the development and deployment of education and training technologies and techniques in healthcare. These topics are covered to a greater or lesser extent in a multitude of other events across the world and through the year but there is a need for a single forum to bring the sector together and discuss these topics, not in specialty specific conferences but in an open integrated forum.
HEATT is organized by The Halldale Group, publishers of simulation and training magazines; and the organizers of over 50 training conferences and events for high technology, high risk industries.
We know that healthcare is not working properly and aside from the well documented human cost, up to a half of healthcare expenditure in the US, or $1.2 trillion, is lost due to avoidable error and waste. It will take new and better, individual and team training within a robust system designed to minimize the possibility of error to create a proper system of care fit for patients, staff and the healthcare business. Helping to create that system and support it through timely and excellent training is what HEATT is designed to do.
HEATT will draw the best minds in the sector from all disciplines and professions to a focused forum which will address the overall need for a ‘training renaissance’. By making best use of new and emerging teaching techniques, technology, training and assessment tools and drawing on best practices the event will promulgate best practices and the benefits they offer patients, staff and the healthcare business.
Who should attend HEATT?
HEATT is for everyone involved in healthcare education. If your involvement is from a student’s first exposure in high school through nursing and med school, residency, practice and ongoing career you should attend HEATT and contribute to the discussion.
Hospital and healthcare executives need to be aware of the potential for improvement that other high risk industries have already realized. Hospital managers, risk specialists, insurers and government will be key to the change that is needed in healthcare E&T to develop a system of affordable quality care.
