Discussion: Healthcare Information Technology Trends
Post a brief description of general healthcare technology trends, particularly related to data/information
you have observed in use in your healthcare organization or nursing practice. Describe any potential
challenges or risks that may be inherent in the technologies associated with these trends you described.
Then, describe at least one potential benefit and one potential risk associated with data safety,
legislation, and patient care for the technologies you described. Next, explain which healthcare
technology trends you believe are most promising for impacting healthcare technology in nursing
practice and explain why. Describe whether this promise will contribute to improvements in patient care
outcomes, efficiencies, or data management. Be specific and provide examples.
Assignment: Literature Review: The Use of Clinical Systems to Improve Outcomes and Efficiencies
New technology—and the application of existing technology—only appears in healthcare settings after
careful and significant research. The stakes are high, and new clinical systems need to offer evidence of
positive impact on outcomes or efficiencies. Nurse informaticists and healthcare leaders formulate
clinical system strategies. As these strategies are often based on technology trends, informaticists and
others have then benefited from consulting existing research to inform their thinking. In this
Assignment, you will review existing research focused on the application of clinical systems. After
reviewing, you will summarize your findings.
To Prepare:
Review the Resources and reflect on the impact of clinical systems on outcomes and efficiencies within
the context of nursing practice and healthcare delivery.
Conduct a search for recent (within the last 5 years) research focused on the application of clinical
systems. The research should provide evidence to support the use of one type of clinical system to
improve outcomes and/or efficiencies, such as “the use of personal health records or portals to support
patients newly diagnosed with diabetes.” Identify and select 5 peer-reviewed articles from your
research.
The Assignment: (4-5 pages)
In a 4- to 5-page paper, synthesize the peer-reviewed research you reviewed. Be sure to address the
following:
(Rubric) Identify the 5 peer-reviewed articles you reviewed, citing each in APA format.
Summarize each study, explaining the improvement to outcomes, efficiencies, and lessons learned from
the application of the clinical system each peer-reviewed article described. Be specific and provide
examples.
