Discussion: Healthcare Information Technology Trends NURS 5051

Throughout history, technological advancements have appeared for one purpose before finding applications elsewhere that lead to spikes in its usage and development. The internet, for example, was originally developed to share research before becoming a staple of work and entertainment. But technology—new and repurposed—will undoubtedly continue to be a driver of healthcare information. Informaticists often stay tuned to trends to monitor what the next new technology will be or how the next new idea for applying existing technology can benefit outcomes.

In this Discussion, you will reflect on your healthcare organization’s use of technology and offer a technology trend you observe in your environment.

To Prepare:

Reflect on the Resources related to digital information tools and technologies.
Consider your healthcare organization’s use of healthcare technologies to manage and distribute information.
Reflect on current and potential future trends, such as use of social media and mobile applications/telehealth, Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled asset tracking, or expert systems/artificial intelligence, and how they may impact nursing practice and healthcare delivery.

RE: Discussion – Week 6

Healthcare Information Technology Trends

New technologies in healthcare have sponsored a wide range of changes in the ways of offering services among service seekers. Dykes et al. (2017) explain that the inception of new technologies in the healthcare sector is only meant to enhance the industry’s preparedness to meet the operational demands that accompany the 21st century. Innovations such as 5G, telemedicine, electronic health records, virtual assistants, big data analytics, robotics, computer, and machine vision have been instrumental. They help catapult the industry towards meeting the ever-growing institutional demands and fostering efficient operations to ensure effective delivery of health care. Ideally, through the incorporation of modern-day innovations in medicine, the sector enabled to avail of its services to the remote areas of the country that were previously considered as marginalized.

The 21st century has taken its position as an era of immense technological advancement in the healthcare sector. Most importantly, innovative trends have proceeded intending to enhance the adoption of e-data to improve the organization of services and nursing practice. McGonigle and Mastrian (2017) explain that the sector has taken advantage of the most straightforward and highly sophisticated innovations to foster operational efficiency. For instance, the industry has made effective use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to simplify tasks for hospital administrators and professionals while transforming the lives of millions of patients over the years. On the other hand, computer image recognition has saved both the professionals and service seekers the time needed to initiate valid diagnoses and accurate prediction of illnesses. Electronic health records (EHR) have availed members of the healthcare profession with an ample platform for identifying consumer information, availing progress notes, diagnoses, and laboratory results on time. Comparatively, telemedicine has taken its position as the center-stage of modern medicine by decentralizing care and availing patient-centered personalized care eg, during these times of pandemic (COVID-19) everyone is practicing social distancing. Providers have been utilizing telemedicine (telepsychiatry) to diagnose, prescribe, and complete follow up.

Although these innovational trends have provided significant benefits to the health care sector, they present diverse challenges. Rao-Gupta et al. (2018) consider reduced care continuity, one of the most significant problems associated with the inception of new technologies in the healthcare sector. The researchers explain that innovations such as big data analytics, telemedicine, and artificial intelligence avail service seekers with on-demand services to initiate connections with random healthcare providers. Even though this trend could avail the patient with real-time benefits, it imposes adverse care continuity constraints. Such a premise is attributed to the fact that the technology will deny the patient’s primary care provider the opportunity to access the patient’s information from the previous visits. This aspect leads to top disconnections in medical history.

Modern technologies present immense gains in inpatient care. Dykes et al. (2017) explain that most techniques tend to infuse other innovations to enhance their operational capacities. For instance, telemedicine incorporates personal health record systems (PHRs), which give a collection of the patient’s health information. The fact that PHRs can be accessed at any time on web-enabled devices reveals how they may come in handy in availing emergency personnel vital information concerning a patient’s health information.

Nonetheless, innovations face the threat of data theft. Ideally, the healthcare sector adopts privacy and confidentiality as significant standards of operation. The fact that changes such as EHR, artificial intelligence, and telemedicine may compromise patient data reveals how dangerous they may be in ensuring that these operational standards are maintained.

I consider 5Gas the most promising innovation in the health care sector. Rao-Gupta et al. (2018) explain that medical innovation’s effectiveness is strongly attributed to its ability to reach underserved populations. 5G will enable efficient delivery of healthcare services in remote settings by supporting the transmission of large files among specialists providing care. Similarly, the nature of 5G as the most reliable mobile network will support other innovations such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence.

RE: Discussion – Week 6

Queendaline,

Thank you for a wonderful discussion about the 21st century health care innovations. I totally agree with your research about the security risk of 5G networks and telemedicine.  During this current pandemic, Telemedicine has evolved prematurely in health care specially for adult with chronic conditions.  According to a study by Barney, et.al (2020) “Telemedicine practice guidelines are established for general pediatrics and adolescent and pediatric mental health care, but there are no telemedicine guidelines specific to adolescent medicine. Ethical and legal complexities remain, including concerns over privacy and data security, inequity in access to technology and technological knowledge, and questions regarding effects on the doctor-patient relationship” (p 2).   These study have pointed out more concerns on the patient’s access to a secured network, navigation in a simple or complex smart phone or computer and medical equipments such as BP machine and weighing scale that are needed to be able accomplish success in a telemedicine visit.   The technology knowledge of the patient to navigate a computer could lead to a decrease engagement /participation by the caregiver or the patient. This literacy gap in technology opens up an opportunity to provide training in office during initial consultations as well as providing technology support during the first few visits (Barney,et.al, 2020).
