After 17 years in technology, including various leadership roles, and now as a Registered Nurse, I turn my attention to the use of technology within the healthcare industry. As for I look forward to the many opportunities it will present to help clinicians make sense of the technology, save time and effort, and reduce potential errors. The ability to increase direct patient care and reduce administrative effort will provide the ability to reach the goals of higher quality of care and improved health outcomes.

Healthcare is, and remains, one of the most pressing challenges facing our nation (and the world) in the 21st century. Almost any discussion related to improving healthcare, whether it implicates reducing costs or improving patient safety and satisfaction, usually has technology as a core component. Technology, in and of itself, will not solve the problem, but used appropriately will contribute to the transformation of healthcare, as it has in many other industries.

I write about these issues on my blog.
