INNOVATIVE INFORMATICS TOOLS AND APPLICATIONS TO CLINICAL PRACTICE
New technology and tools will undoubtedly shape nursing practice. “Research suggests that between 8% and 16% of nursing time is spent on non-nursing activities and tasks that should be delegated to others” (Robert, 2019). As a result, new innovations may minimize the time spent on these non-nursing activities and tasks to further support and strengthen patient care.
One such technology is the use of robots. While nursing robots are not yet readily available, researchers have earned millions in grants over the last decade researching and developing AI and robotic innovations to improve healthcare and nursing practice. From clinical practice to patient support, the future seems endless with possibilities.
For this Discussion, you will explore various topics associated with innovative technology and your healthcare organization or nursing practice. You will consider how you might utilize these advancements, as well as consider how these advancements might influence nursing informatics.
