Welcome to the Healthcare & Technology blog. After 17 years in technology, including various leadership roles, now a Registered Nurse and Healthcare Informatics Specialist, I turn my attention to the use of technology within the healthcare industry.
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.
