Topic: Future of Health Care IT.
With everything that we have covered so far in class, and what we read and see in the world around us, it is obvious that major changes are happening all around us. And, changes seem to be occurring at an ever increasing rate. As part of these changes, there will be changes in how healthcare is delivered to the society. Many new technologies are becoming available, although some are not yet in common use. These advancements are likely to result in cheaper, easier access to healthcare and new paradigms in healthcare delivery.
GROUP 4: Do some web research and find a new or emerging technology that you believe will improve patient outcomes and/or improve the delivery of health care. Explain what the technology is and how and why you believe it will improve patient outcomes and/or improve the delivery of health care. Please put the name of the technology in your subject line and choose something that has not already been reported on by another student.
Put the name of the technology in the Subject line for your posting.
From your research, explain:
What the technology is
How and why you believe it will improve patient outcomes and/or improve the delivery of health care.
GROUPS 1, 2 and 3: For at least two postings:
Conduct your own research on the new or emerging technology discussed in the posting.
Identify and explain two issues or concerns related to its implementation and use.
I would like for each of you to think back over the class and share with us one new and / or important concept that you learned during this class AND, if applicable, how you may be able to apply this concept. Also, if there are any recommendations to improve the next offering of the course please let me know either in this forum or via email. You can also add any areas of improvement and / or things you liked about the course (so we know what to keep) in the end of course survey – which I hope everyone will complete. Your survey responses help us improve the next offering of the course. Thank you for a great semester.
I look forward to reading your comments!
