TrackCore User Group 2010: 16 Hospitals Help Shape TrackCore
CLEVELAND, OH--The TrackCore User Group 2010 was held at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute in Cleveland, Ohio on August 8-10. TUG10 was designed to spark and facilitate innovation with regards to tissue & implant tracking, compliance and methodologies to make the process easier and more efficient.
The event sparked interest from around the country, including hospitals from California all the way to New Jersey. "The input from our customers is invaluable to us" says Brenda Vander Linden, Co-Chair TUG10, "especially from a usability standpoint. In addition to giving our users the opportunity to voice their opinion, it gave them tremendous insight into how other organizations are tracking tissue and ensuring compliance."
In addition to the educational sessions, there was a panel session, comprising of Susan Sable of St. Francis Medical Center, David Border of Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Shelly Bosworth of North Kansas City Hospital, Karen Graves of The Cleveland Clinic, and Terri Stec of Baystate Medical Center.
Participants also had the opportunity to hear from Dr. Thomas Bauer, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Bauer has given more than 150 invited lectures outside of Cleveland Clinic, and has served as a consultant and voting member to U.S. Food and Drug Administration advisory panels in two different divisions. He has published more than 225 manuscripts and book chapters. He is also Deputy Editor for Research for The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.
The TrackCore User Group 2011 location and dates will be announced later this year.
