5 Current Issues in Healthcare include… Networks, systems, medical devices, and wall clocks display and record different times. No certainty of start/end times for events, tasks, etc. Without accurate time for Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs), you are vulnerable to potential litigation Error-prone manual clock-time setting

6 What You Do Not Want To See in Your Facility Physical Security system has 12:22:29 Display Clock reads 12:16 Which one is right ?? (A medical centers Public Safety Center)

7 What can Time Synchronization do to Improve Healthcare Operations? Accuracy of records assured – treatments, procedures, time of birth/death, etc. Legally traceable time supports credibility and consistency for EHRs, log files, audit trails, digital signatures. Enhances interoperability for all networks, systems, and devices, as well as between agencies. Provides regulatory compliance and best practices, reduces liability. Fully automated, eliminates manual resetting, automatic DST adjustment, behind your firewall.

8 Credible, Consistent EHRs Certification Commission for Healthcare IT (CCHIT) – All electronic health and security records are synchronized with UTC time and NTP/SNTP protocols when a NetClock is employed Health Level 7 (HL7) - NetClock provides full compliance to the accuracy, security, and manageability of this standard Chest Pain Accreditation – Accurate Coordination of times between EMS, ER, Cardiology, and Cath Lab ensures the best results for cardiac arrest patients JCAHO standard IM 7.8 – NetClock provides legal, authenticated date/time stamps for medical records FDA 21 CFR Part 11 – Accurate time- stamped audit trails supported by NetClock

9 Continue the string of Traceability NetClock can provide Legally Traceable Time from the moment the patient enters the hospital: 911, EMS, Police, etc… all provide this time, up until the patient is brought into the hospital. Continue the string of traceability by synchronizing the hospital network, systems, equipment, displays, etc… so that your records can be admissible in a court of law. 4,500 9-1-1 Dispatch Centers rely on Spectracom for accurate time
