    Technology – A Disruptor and Catalyst for Change

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jan 6, 2017 5:01:59 AM

    Welcome back guest blogger, Daniel Weberg, co-author of Leadership for Evidence-Based Innovation in Nursing and Health Professions for a new post on technology.

    Although difficult, unraveling the care process across the healthcare system is necessary in order to identify specific areas where technology can enable care for the future and meet the triple aim.  Healthcare systems that scrutinize this process can incorporate technology to decrease cost, improve patient experience, and improve overall population health. To affect change, leaders must be able to lead through ambiguity in order to see the patterns that signal change.  Technology is a disruptor and it can motivate teams to create novel solutions to long held problems like those in the Triple Aim.  The key for any leader is to understand how technology fits in.  It’s seldom the only solution but rather a facilitator and catalyst to systemic change.

    Please welcome guest blogger, Daniel Weberg, co-author of Leadership for Evidence-Based Innovation in Nursing and Health Professions for an informative post on technology.

    Emerging technologies are rapidly changing how nursing care is delivered by enhancing the tools for patient assessment, enabling care anywhere, delivering instant information for evidence-based care interventions, and the improving efficiency and quality of care delivery.  Remote monitoring, virtual wound care, and high definition video allow nurses to assess patients away from the bedside.  Care is being delivered anywhere through the use of social networks and virtual wound care tools.  Information is delivered instantly to care providers through mobile devices, data dashboards, and virtual learning systems.  Finally, patient care has become more efficient through the linkage of Real Time Location Systems connecting patient, equipment, and nurses together for coordinated efforts.  Technology is enabling care in ways that the profession may not be prepared to handle.
