About the webinar:
Technology is constantly transforming how healthcare is delivered to patients. This talk will provide an introduction to various technologies that are leading the way to transform healthcare delivery, from institutional care to home and community-based care. Some of the technologies that are part of the evolving healthcare scene are remote presence telehealth robots, virtual and human patient simulation, in-home sensor tracking systems, and adaptive and assistive equipment, such as exo-skeletal suits, assistive robots and sensor care robots, that will extend the reach of healthcare providers. The presenter is one of the leaders in the nation in designing new innovation collaboration spaces. The listener will learn about the newly opened University of Cincinnati Innovation Collaboratory and the how the Center for Academic Technologies and Educational Resources' iPad Institute is expanding into the students’ interactive learning environment.

About the speaker:
As the UC College of Nursing’s new chief officer of innovation and entrepreneurship, Debi Sampsel’s job is to transform the strategic focus on technology to an engaging learner centered care experience. Faculty and students at the Uptown and UC East campuses are beginning to sense the changing environment as the new wave of technology is arriving and the new Innovation Collabortory has opened its door for great intraprofessional student and faculty work together. Various technologies are being leveraged to conduct new types of research, educate students in an interactive environment, and establish new integrated practices that will transform the learning environment into a workforce readiness center.
Sampsel is nationally noted for her visionary leadership and innovative spirit in the fields of remote presence telehealth robots and human patient simulation. She was the first researcher in the world to bring remote presence robotics into the nursing academic field to study how to expand the research of faculty and healthcare providers. Sampsel has designed and implemented various robot projects in healthcare delivery sites, clinics, academic settings and most recently a “Living Laboratory Smart Technology House.” The house design was a product of Sampsel’s creative transformational work and collaborative spirit. The laboratory is where her work with healthcare simulation, remote presence robots, sensor tracking systems, and adaptive and assistive equipment flourished. Currently, Debi is serving as a commissioner of the Center for Aging Services Technology in Washington, D.C. In 2010, her work was selected as one of the top education and innovation ideas in the world by METI Corporation. The collaborative work that she accomplished while serving as the Nursing Institute of West Central Ohio executive director was featured in a 2012 book that was written by international human patient simulation guru, Pamela Jefferies.
Sampsel's ingenuity has also been incorporated into work with the Air Force, Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, and in international settings. Sampsel, who is currently completing her Doctoral of Nursing Studies, has a master of nursing from the Medical College of Ohio, a Bachelor’s of Art from the University of Toledo, an associate’s degree in nursing, a long term care certificate from George Washington University.
