Running head: TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING What is the Impact of Technology in Nursing Practice? Billeto R. McGee Grantham University CA499 – Professional Strategies February 16, 2019 1 TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 2 What is the Impact of Technology in Nursing Practice? Introduction In the modern world, technology has become the tool towards effective service delivery and production of goods. While technology may seem to have initiated and tremendously change the nursing practice, it is significant to research on the impacts in this field thoroughly. In the recent few decades, some health practitioners had some negative views towards the implementation of Electronic Health Records. However, it is apparent that many organizations have embraced the technology, mainly because of the benefits the facilities are able to enjoy with the implementation of the Electronic Health Registers. It is apparent that nursing practice is somewhat the backbone of the health facilities from a broader perspective. Therefore, any improvement on the nursing practice dramatically improves the overall service delivery and image of the health facility. In nursing practice, technology has enhanced communication, nurse education, and research. Problem Statement Most of the sectors and professionals across the world are leveraging on technology for cost-cutting, efficiency and overall performance among other benefits. It is important to note that the use of technology is capable of drastically reducing the cost of providing healthcare and improving the services by the nurse practitioners. How are the nurse practitioners leveraging technology? TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 3 Purpose of the study The primary purpose of this study is to examine the various ways the technology has changed the nurse practice. To establish this, this study examines the different areas that the nurse practitioners are engaging technology in their endeavors to providing high quality and timely healthcare to eradicate the health challenges facing the modern society (Elgin & Bergero, 2015). As such, this research proposal purposes to determine the help of various technological advancements towards assisting the nurse practitioners including the implementation of the Electronic Health Records, use of internet in research, big data and cloud computing for easy access of records and communication between the nurses and patients. Research question For the realization of the above-stated purpose, this research proposal responds to the question of what are the impacts of technology in nursing practice. It is notable that nurse practitioners like other professionals are using technology. In this regard, this research proposal seeks to identify the various benefits technology has influenced in nurse practice or why the nurse practitioners should continue using technology? The significance of the Study The study on the impacts of technology in the nurse practice field is very significant and in different ways. Firstly, this study shall determine the importance of leveraging technology in nurse practice towards minimizing or eradicating the common problem of burnouts among the nurse practitioners. It is also important to note that the study shall examine the various changes and benefits that the different technological improvements such as the Electronic Health Records TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 4 have influenced in the nurse practice (Lavin, Harper & Barr, 2015). For instance, recent research finds that the use of EHRs has drastically reduced the cost of running healthcare facilities. Of importance, the Electronic health records have enabled ease of access of the patient records by the nurses. The latter shows that the nurses are less likely to have the burnouts with the implementation of the EHRs. Traditionally, the nurses used to peruse through the manual documents to determine the patients’ records regardless of the length of the queues. With the EHRs, nurses are able to access the full details of the patients within seconds (Weaver, Delaney, Weber & Carr, 2016). Therefore, the technology that has brought HER has greatly benefited the nurses in record keeping a situation that influences efficiency in health care facilities thus promoting the image of facilities while ensuring the good health of the communities they serve. As observed, EHRs enables the nurse practitioners to meet their objectives at a lower cost and using less energy. In fact, the systems allows the nurse practitioners to serve more clients within a limited time (Piscotty, Kalisch & Gracey‐Thomas, 2015). However, as nurses are able to serve more clients, they need more storage space for the storage of the increasing number of the patients’ data. This study will also help to determine what procedures or technological strategies are the nurse practitioners employing to improve storage facilities to avoid system downtimes and eventual failures of the entire system. From this perspective, this research proposal endeavors to establish the extent to which the nurse practitioners are leveraging cloud computing to improve the storage of the patient’s data. The increased data stored provides a pool of information that nurse practitioners can use in their research to develop other interventions for different health problems. TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 5 Conclusion This study proposal determines that the use of technology in the health care sector has great impacts on the nurse practice. Notably, the technology has influenced the proper and easier method of record keeping that permits improved service the people thus improved health in the community. Additionally, the technology has enhanced communication among the nurse practitioners and physicians for efficiency. Finally, the technology has greatly influenced research for the realization of different intervention strategies through the big data. TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 6 References Elgin, K. H., & Bergero, C.

Running head: ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING Annotated Bibliography on the Impacts of Technology in Nursing Practice Billeto R. McGee Grantham University CA499 – Professional Strategies February 20, 2019 1 ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 2 Annotated Bibliography on the Impacts of Technology in Nursing Practice Doswell, W. M., Braxter, B., Dabbs, A. D., Nilsen, W., & Klem, M. L. (2013). mHealth: Technology for nursing practice, education, and research. J Nurs Educ Pract, 3(10), 99. The main aim of this article is to discuss the significance of mHealth in education, research as well as nursing practice. Also, the report purposes to illustrate the ongoing mHealth program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing. The articles find that mHealth has played a significant role in enhancing nursing practice in offering health care to clients in this era of information technology. The authors also claim that the Mobile Health is a rapidly developing field that is continuously providing patient education, increase patient safety, enhance treatment and prevent illnesses. This technology is not beneficial to patient alone but enhances communication between healthcare practitioners situated close and far distances geographically. This source is different from others because it majors on one aspect (mHealth or mobile health) of healthcare technology as opposed to the other sources that discusses IT as a whole. This source will be helpful to my research because it provides evidence-based findings. Elgin, K. H., & Bergero, C. (2015). Technology and the Bedside Nurse: an exploration and review of implications for practice. Nursing Clinics, 50(2), 227-239. This source focuses on reviewing the opportunities and problems in the correlation between bedside nursing and modern technology. The author claims that health technology makes nurse practitioners to incorporate and master a vast range of devices, tools, and methods of monitoring patient status. Also, the findings indicate that the increasing amount of open innovation has influenced bedside nurses. The connection between modern technology and bedside nursing is desirable. This source has similarity with other sources that I will use in the ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 3 sense that they have considered technology to have a positive relationship with bedside nursing. This source will help me in my research because I will draw various examples of how technologies work in nursing to my own research. As a matter of fact, I will require a lot of information regarding the positive and negative impacts of using modern technology in bedside nursing in completing my research paper. Therefore, I deem this source to be significant and relevant to my research topic. Huston, C. (2013). The impact of emerging technology on nursing care: warp speed ahead. The Online Journal of Issues in Nursing, 18(2). In this publication, the author presents seven emerging technologies that are thought to alter the nurse practices. It also discusses the skills sets that nurse practitioners will need and four challenges leadership in healthcare setting will face in incorporating these innovations. Precisely, the author finds that the emerging technology will have positive changes in nursing practice and at the same time pose challenges on health care facilities regarding their implementation. For instance, the leadership of various health care facilities is expected to encounter the issues of finance shortages bearing in mind that implementing modern technologies is a process that requires huge investments. Additionally, leaders may fall short of the necessary knowledge and skills to run these technologies. Remember that not only leaders will have a problem with these technologies, but patients will have a problem with understanding how these innovations are being used to diagnose their diseases. This source will guide me from two fronts; positive and negative impacts of emerging technologies on nursing practice. Lavin, M. A., Harper, E., & Barr, N. (2015). Health information technology, patient safety, and professional nursing care documentation in acute care settings. Online J Issues Nurs, 20(6). ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 4 This publication is a description of the opinions of nurse practitioners shared by members of the Nursing Practice Committee of the Missouri Nurses Association. This aspect encourages nurse practitioners to bring issues associated with electronic health record (EHR) to the table when crucial decisions related to information technology are made. Furthermore, this aspect motivates nurse practitioners to comply with the code of ethics whenever they are discharging their duties. Notwithstanding that the technology stimulates them to go for further training in order to keep themselves updated accordingly and be able to use the new technological devices and tools. The author finds various issues related to nursing which included EHR efficiency and medication safety among others. This article agrees with the others on one thing; technology increases efficiency and effectiveness in an electronic health record system. I will draw credible and valid information concerning the relationship between EHR and technology from this source. Piscotty, R. J., Kalisch, B., & Gracey‐Thomas, A. (2015). Impact of healthcare information technology on nursing practice. Journal of Nursing Scholarship, 47(4), 287-293. This article is a report on the additional mediation outcomes from descriptive crosssectional research. It aims at examining if nurse practitioners’ perception of the influence of health care IT on their work mediates the association amongst electronic nursing care reminder utilization and missed nursing care. The research deployed a detailed design and MISSCARE Survey as the methodology. The findings indicate that the perceptions of the influence of health care IT has an impact on the use of nursing care reminder and the rate of missed nursing care. This article differs from the rest because it fails to indicate if the effect of IT on missed nursing care is positive or negative. The results are significant to the improvement of healthcare technology in my research as I will be able to keep in mind the perception concerning the effects ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING 5 of IT within this field. I recommend this source to students pursuing degrees and undergraduates courses. Weaver, C., Delaney, C., Weber, P., &Carr, R. (2016). Nursing and informatics for the 21st century: an international look at practice, education, and EHR trends. HIMSS Publishing. This book conveys details acquired from valid, reliable and credible sources. The source documents a significant historical change evident in nursing practice, connected to the emerge of electronic health record (EHR), health policies, as well as national strategies happening globally. The book uses 30 case studies drawn from reliable and incredible innovative works occurring across the universe. This source finds a connection between health care technology and these historical shifts. Although this source is more similar to the other sources presented in this paper, it differs in its methodology because it uses case studies contrary to the other sources. I will use this source because it will allow me to have a comparison across industrials, developing and developed countries. Besides, I consider this book to be valid and reliable on the bases that writers have integrated examples, data and statistics from reputable sources to support its argument. Moreover, the book is written in simple English that is easier to be understood by the readers. ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY TECHNOLOGY IN NURSING Reference Robinson, Oliver C., and Jonathan A.
