Highlights from the 2018 APIC Conference
The 2018 Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Conference recently took place from June 13 to 15 in Minneapolis, Minn. The APIC Conference brought leaders and learners together in the infection prevention and epidemiology community. Here, this group could see solutions to infection prevention challenges, build skills and improve expertise on emerging issues. This allowed attendees to go back to their facility with knowledge, such as general best practices or how to keep patients safer. It also offered networking opportunities for attendees to learn from one another and vendors to showcase their products and service solutions.
A wealth of products for infection prevention were featured at the 2018 APIC Conference. Cutting-edge software and equipment solutions were presented for attendees to interact with and learn from. Multiple presenters also attended to speak on infection prevention topics. All aspects of the conference came together over the three-day span to help attendees gain knowledge and bring solutions back to their health system to fight healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
LogicStream Health had the pleasure of speaking with APIC attendees about who we are and how our infection prevention suite of solutions can help combat HAIs. They work to eliminate HAIs, such as CAUTI, C. Diff, and CLABSI, by utilizing information found in electronic health records. Many were curious about the solution implementation process and what results they could expect to see once live on the system. Attendees were happy to hear about our light footprint and quick installation, and the early returns our customers have experienced such as drastic reductions in C. diff (50%) and CAUTI (30%). Upon hearing more, they were intrigued and excited about the ways they could see the solutions helping their health system.
