NAPA’s Dr. Sheldon Newman to Unveil How Remote Video Auditing is Revolutionizing the Delivery of Patient-Centered Care

North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), the largest single-specialty anesthesia and perioperative management company in the United States, announced that Sheldon Newman, M.D., Regional Director, will be a featured speaker at the Becker’s Hospital Review 4th Annual CEO Roundtable + CFO/CIO Roundtable. The event will be held November 18-19, 2015 at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago, Illinois. NAPA will also be hosting an exclusive advisory roundtable at the event.

Dr. Newman will be presenting to leading health care executives on the topic “Improved Safety & Throughput Efficiencies Gained by Remote Video Auditing in the OR & Beyond” during a breakout session on November 18 at 2:55pm. His presentation will focus on NAPA’s remote video auditing (RVA) solution, NAPA Peak Performance2®, and its ability to dramatically improve compliance among healthcare workers, strengthen patient safety, drive efficiencies within the OR suite and improve surgeon satisfaction. Scientific research and data-driven results will be presented, demonstrating the proven efficacy of RVA systems and processes.

Our job as leaders is to put system processes in place that prevent human error from ever reaching the patient,” said Dr. Newman. “By providing real-time feedback to practitioners, remote video auditing successfully allows health care providers the opportunity to improve patient safety and enhance efficiencies. Additionally, RVA provides the detailed reporting necessary for leadership to establish processes that help foster a culture of safety, while improving operating room efficiency.”

Key takeaways for attendees will include:

  • How RVA creates measurable improvements in compliance with patient safety metrics
  • A quality improvement initiative - PHI and HIPAA compliant
  • Enhancing OR efficiencies through RVA raises revenue
  • Applications for RVA outside of the OR
