    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.
