Distributed Education: valuable in the healthcare environment (comment)

March 31, 2014

Many health care professions are required to continue their education in order to keep their license. The internet is a great source for these requirements. The internet allows professions from different states, and even countries, to collaborate and teach each other something new. This also helps with computer skills and knowledge. Technology is already a big part in the medical field and it is only going to keep growing. Having computer skills is necessary in any medical profession.

The Elderly and the Internet, comment

This is very true. There are many hypochondriacs out there that could get carried away with medical websites like MD. I don’t think that the internet will ever be able to replace the knowledge and advice we receive from a live doctor.

Future Population Trends, comment

RE: Healthcare Informatics Resources (2013 June 6) Future Population Trends [Blog Post] Retrieved from http://healthcare-informatics-resources.com/2013/06/06/future-population-trends-2/

This article was very interesting and I agree that as generations grow more resources for healthcare will have to be available. Changes in society, technology, and healthcare will effect new healthcare systems. People are living longer which stresses the importance of having more health care systems. Technology is becoming increasingly relevant to healthcare. People can use the internet for resources and to get more access to healthcare. Access to technology is very important I think to increase education and will help providers and consumers. I believe with the rate technology is growing we will get more information on cures for diseases and learn alot about healthcare needs.

My comment regarding elderly and the internet is simple, leave the internet to the younger generation. I cannot even imagine my grandmother chatting, dating or socializing on the internet. Criminals are looking for ways to prey upon the elder’s. I believe when elders become a certain age they are targets for schemes.The elderly can sometimes be way to nice to individuals they don’t know, which makes them targets for bad people to take advantage of them. I believe elders see good in everyone and they could possible make the wrong decision online with trust.

In this new world of technology nothing stays the same for very long. Technology has become a big part in our society, including our hospitals. We have come a long way from when we could not do heart surgery to where now in some cases heart surgery can be done with minimal invasive technics. Information is easily passed between doctors in order to figure out what the best treatments are and what trial and errors have been done. As technology continues to grow so will the knowledge of our doctors which will hopefully lead to a future of less sickness and diseases.

Nursing Informatics and health Assessment, comment

I completely agree with this post about nurses needing to learn and get trained in using the computer programs at work.  When I was taught through my job, I was taught by someone who had only one day of training.  I had to base my knowledge off of what she remembered.  I also had to trust that she was doing it right and that she was showing me a good way to learn and remember.  If I would have had a day or more of training then I would have been ok with making mistakes and doing things wrong.  But when you are just thrown into something and then do it wrong it could jeopardize your job, especially when it has to do with patient information.

My comment regarding Future Population Trends is, with the era of the baby boomers approaching, we need to make sure we are fully prepared and ready for their care. While we do have certain technologies that we can use to assist us, we need to make sure they have enough hands on care as well. My mother works for a nursing home often discusses the concern of whether or not there will be enough nurses and aids for the influx of patients. Nursing homes and other care clinics need to ensure that they are staffed enough to make sure our senior citizens are getting the best care that they can possibly get. Providers also need to make sure that their employees are being compensated for the work they are doing as well, as care taking can be a very challenging and demanding job.

Electronic Communication, comment

Electronic communication is a great idea. It saves all the patients information electronically which makes it easy for medical personnel to pull up and read. This is helpful when the patient cannot remember or is unable to tell you his/her medical past. Although this is a great idea, and I support it fully, what I do not support is how I have been seeing it work out. I have witnessed in multiple medical settings this technology working and once the staff has figured it out, they switch programs and have to start all over. Re-learning new systems over and over again is exhausting for medical personal. They tend to have problems finding what they are looking for because the system is always changing so they end up wasting time trying to figure out the current system. If the medical community can agree to one type of system/program and do simple updates once a year then this would really be an amazing tool.

Telemedicine for Pediatric Patients, comment

October 13, 2013

Also, the telemedicine communication link usually involves standard telephone service through high speed, wide bandwidth transmission of digital signals in conjunction with computer enhancement. Evolving alternative communication links for telemedicine include fiber optics, satellite connections, and other sophisticated peripheral equipment and software. Telemedicine can be divided into three areas: decision-making aids, remote sensing, and collaborative arrangements for real-time management of patients at a distance.
