Emerging Technologies in Health Care: DNP 805 Topic 2

From the electronic health record (EHR) to nanotechnology to 3-D printers and beyond, there are an increasing number of useful and innovative technologies being used in health care settings that have an important role in linking and organizing care and information. For this assignment, you will create a slide presentation to present to administrators and nurses providing direct patient care.

Clinical Problem

A significant proportion of the population in America lives in the rural areas. The rural areas are often far from well-developed healthcare systems. The existing healthcare systems in these settings do not have the modern infrastructure to address their health needs. This predisposes the rural dwellers to significant health inequalities. This can be seen in their challenges in accessing their needed quality, accessible, quality, and affordable care (Fairchild et al., 2019). The rural dwellers have to travel miles to access their needed specialized care. In some cases, this becomes a challenge to the minority populations who might be considered as low-income earners in the society. They also have to pay out of the pocket in order to access care from specialists in cases of complex health problems. These experiences form part of the factors that contribute to health inequalities between the urban and rural dwellers, hence, the need for the adoption of a responsive strategy to address it (Fairchild et al., 2019).

Directions for Emerging Technologies in Health Care:

Your presentation must include the following elements:

  • Identify and provide a brief description of a clinical problem.
  • Identify a technology that can improve patient outcomes for that clinical problem.
  • Select a theory to guide the presentation and discuss why this theory is applicable.
  • Address how the technology you have identified will assist in resolving the clinical problem.
  • Potential strengths and limitations of the technology selected.

Use PowerPoint to create your slide presentation. Your slide presentation must contain a title slide, 12-15 slides of content, and a References slide. Use evidence to support your claims. A minimum of five references using APA style must be used. Speaker’s notes must be included for each individual slide (add a speaker notes section to demonstrate the verbal speech you would give along with each slide).

Presentation Tips for Emerging Technologies in Health Care:

Text slides are not meant to be read by the speaker, but by the audience. Lettering should generally be limited to four lines and should never be more than seven, including the title.

  1. It is advisable not to use more than eight words per line.
  2. Avoid too much detail and resist the temptation to overload the presentation with information.
  3. Avoid jargon and abbreviations, unless they are clear to all the audience.
  4. Aim at the average person in the audience.
  5. Use plain English.

DNP 805 Topic 2 Discussion 1

Discuss the usefulness of the electronic health record (EHR) and its impact on patient safety and quality outcomes. Describe strengths and limitations that might apply to its usage.

DNP 805 Topic 2 Discussion 2

You are now a DNP-prepared nurse in a new leadership position in clinical practice. Analyze your new practice workflow to incorporate seeing patients and in regards to communication with the health care team and the infusion of the EHR into your practice. What elements do you need to consider if this position is in a magnet acute-care hospital in a busy metropolitan area? How might your practice change if the setting was a rural regional clinic system?
