Bridge Medical CEO John Grotting to help launch new alliance to improve healthcare delivery

Bridge Medical President and CEO John B. Grottingan expert on the use of barcoding technology to promote patient safetywill join American Hospital Association President Dick Davidson, and other healthcare leaders as they announce the formation of a National Alliance for Health Information Technology at a day-long summit next Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

AHA is serving as the catalyst for the Alliance, a new partnership representing a broad spectrum of leading healthcare providers, information technology vendors, and national associations with the capacity, resources and commitment to agree upon, and develop, voluntary information technology standards. U.S. Congresswoman Nancy Johnson (R-Conn.)a nationally recognized leader in healthcare reformis expected to address the June 25 meeting, which aims to promote information systems standardization in healthcare.

Many experts believe adoption of technology standards will help improve healthcare delivery. For example, no uniform standards exist for barcoding of medications, thereby making it more difficult for hospitals to utilize the latest technology that would improve the medication distribution and administration process. In fact, only 11 percent of hospitals participating in a recent survey are utilizing barcode technology, which has been proven to increase safety.
