From remote monitoring to telehealth consults, virtual nursing innovations are poised to revolutionize how patients connect to quality nursing expertise, said Joey Meneses, CTO at Akron Children’s Hospital. In this piece, he discussed technologies that allow nurses to “monitor, assess, educate, and engage patients anytime, anywhere.”
“We can’t continue to do what we’ve done in the past and expect to survive,” said Terri Couts, CDO at Guthrie Clinic. In this interview, she talks about the virtual command center designed to centralize key functions, increase efficiencies, and ease the burden on nurses – and the “revamp” that’s helping them get there.
“If we don’t set them up for success, they’re going to have a lot of long nights. They’re going to have a lot of frustration,” said Gretchen Britt. In this interview, she talks about the importance of training, change management, and IT governance, and how she’s applying lessons learned from her time as a nurse.
The problems facing healthcare today may not be new, but solving them is going to require a new approach, said Nicole Kerkenbush. In this podcast, she talked about the critical role technology can play in easing the burden on caregivers, why shadowing is so important, and the lessons she learned in the military.
After more than a decade of collecting data, “it’s time to figure out how to best leverage that information to drive insight and drive change,” said Brian Norris in this interview. And CMIOs should be one of the leaders helping to navigate that path.
