Clinical Application Specialist / Clinical Field Trainer @ Sentec
Crystal Sinclair has over 12 years of experience as a Respiratory Therapist at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland. While gaining experience in the NICU and Pediatric Trauma Center, she acted as the lead therapist, which included roles on the transport and rapid response resuscitation teams. She specialized in high-risk deliveries, conducted respiratory lectures for all clinicians, and participated in a multidisciplinary, unit-based safety group to streamline best practices in the NICU.
In her current role as Clinical Application Specialist/Clinical Field Trainer, Crystal works with Sentec’s Respiratory Solutions team, focusing on IPV technology. She crafts educational content and training on IPV for the Sentec team, and educates clinicians in the field. During her tenure with Sentec, Crystal has also worked to educate clinicians about the importance of transcutaneous monitoring. She will continue to support and educate on the entire Sentec product line.
Crystal has a passion for education and helping others. She graduated magna cum laude from West Chester University, earning her Bachelor’s degree of Health Science in Respiratory Care . She is a credentialed Neonatal Pediatric Specialist and is a current member of the American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC) and the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC).
When she is not in the field supporting customer education, she loves to spend time with her family and her giant Goldendoodle, Teddy. She enjoys sporting events, time outdoors, and trips to the beach.
One of the missions of Connectathon, Inc. is to unite the implementation community. We saw an opportunity to host our first Connectathon Testing Event and Conference during a time when no other event was planned. We had proactively made contact with organizations such as HL7 and IHE inviting them to participate, at no cost, in our event and run their specific testing tracks. Our venue was large enough to accommodate at least 300 systems and respective participants. We had previously learned that there were no plans for an event in this time frame and we wanted to continue the progress of testing, validation, and further development of test methods that were meaningful to the implementation community.
Having learned recently, through public announcement, that IHE International and IHE USA are now planning a small connectathon event, during the exact same week as ours, we didn't want to dilute the progress of testing and validation as this goes directly against our mission. As such, we have decided to suspend our current event in February. We've already contacted all registrants and offered them a refund and hope they will consider supporting this upcoming IHE testing event in February.
Please continue to follow our website and social media to learn how we intend to make testing and validation a year-round endeavor and not just a singular event.
Thank you to every vendor who registered and trusted us to host an awesome conference!
