The Medical Air Paradox
Paul Edwards, Vice President, Medical Gas, Air Liquide Healthcare
Through Air Liquide's aerALin quality control service we have access to "big data" measured at multiple healthcare facilities across the country. While analyzing this data we discovered the most common quality breach comes from the medical air plants themselves, and not outdoor air pollution. This presentation demonstrates how an evidence based approach can lead to improvements in healthcare delivery. In other words, we can only manage what we measure.
