Making a game out of health tracking creates an environment that keeps the patient from straying from the appropriate therapy path (Szczerba, 2014). Another technology that is trending in health care is robot assisted surgeries. Robot assisted surgery can enhance the skill of the surgeon, while allowing for less invasive procedures. Advanced robots will be able to perform an operation from continents away with more precision than a surgeon. Robots will never replace a surgeon, but they will become much more integrated into surgical teams in the future (Szczerba, 2014).
Executive Summary The field of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery requires the use of mathematics and computer science principles to improve the lives of the patients. Computer science principles are applied in the development of facial recognition programs and computer models, used in the planning of surgeries to reduce the operation time and recovery period. Mathematics, along with these programs, are used to determine the “ideal” placement of facial features to achieve a desired face. Mathematics is required to define how a person moves so that mechanical devices can be built to mimic these movements and perform the functions of human limbs and organs. Research possibilities in this area include defining the motion of the human body, using living muscle as motors for mechanical devices, and interfacing machines with the human brain.
The goal is that the new information system implementation will allow the company to provide better care for the patients, as well as for the company. When implementing an information system there is a lot that an organization looks at other than just the implementation process. The organization has to look at cost, training, how the stakeholders will adjust, as well as how this will help the organization all together. Well all want the organization to become better a grown with the way the technology is advancing what better way than to make an information implementation. This will help the company in many different ways as long as all steps are taken.
• Designing the program • Coding the program • Testing the system • Maintaining the system Feasibility Feasibility study is one of the first stages of the life cycle. This stage is first because this will help the programmer/analysts determine whether the software that is going to be developed will be cost effective to make and determine whether or not it will be possible to create. There are many features of feasibility study that have to be accounted for. These are; • Technical features – Do the staff of the organisation have the knowledge to design and create the software if they don’t then will there be anyone to hire to do the job. • Operational features – Does the software meet all the user requirements?
* “You can change a program's structure and thus directly affect its logical flow. Technically this activity is called patching, because it involves placing new code patches (in a seamless manner) over the original code” * Can be a learning tool * Can be used as a way to make new compatible products that are cheaper than what is currently on the market. * For making software interoperate more effectively or to bridge different operating systems or databases. * Used to uncover the uncoordinated features of commercial products. Disadvantages * “Manually translated source code often retains the style and flavor of the original implementation”.
Running head: NUT1:NURSING INFORMATICS:TASK 2 NUT1:Nursing Informatics:Task 2 Western Governors University NUT1:Nursing Informatics:Task 2 Section A Computerized medical record increase quality of care in many ways. First, it is a way that your medical records could be electronically viewed from one doctor to another without the need to wait for transfer of records or the need to copy records and hand carry them to another doctor. Second, they help reduce errors in orders due to the inability to decipher handwriting. Also, if you are in the hospital, your doctor can view your test results and give orders via computer from either his home or office. ( Lee, A. C. 2013).
These computer based systems are used to direct nurses in the clinical decision-making process. The software is designed to identify specific patient characteristics, such as weight and drug allergies, and to match them to a computerized clinical database that includes information such as safe medication ranges and lab values that require verification prior to medication administration (Jennifer B. Lomoine & Helen M. Hurst, 2012). The way this information was expressed in this article was very informative. Medication errors can happen at any time, but I never thought there were so many errors in administering medication to infants. After reading the article I would agree that the technology of smart pumps would help in reducing medication dosing error.
2000 Mar-Apr ;) “A leader knows how to manage the organizational impact of information systems can sharply reduce the behavioral resistance to change, including to new technology, to achieve a more rapid and productive introduction of information technology.” By changing our company with this new technology we also open up doors to more accounts and even gain access to help our patients and doctors communicate and help patients get the best possible advice and medical help they can get. Employees are the ones who are the back bone of the company and keeping them happy is one of my goals. I hope that they will see by changing to the (EMR) that their jobs will become so much easier and effective in so many different
Screening could be the thing that could keep workplaces run efficiently. According to Santa Clara University, with having genetic screening it lowered the work-related diseases plus having the screens would also benefit society as a whole by reducing the health care costs covered by Medicare and Medicaid, public assistance, and social security payments. On the negative side of genetic screening if one was in line for a job requiring strength that wasn’t strong enough one would not get the job. This is fair in my opinion. I think that screens should occur with the interview, during the time of the job, and after the job just to be alert for what shows up and what is on the way.
Some people see the use of technology as a useful tool, that enhances productivity and serves as a complement to human tasks while others believe that technology can make processes more complicated or that eventually in the worst case scenario, it can replace a person's job. Even though both sides have supporters and detractors, the truth is that every day we are surrounded by more and more technologies and we must adapt to make the best out of the situation if we want to remain competitive within our organizations. Whether the case is if we will actually incorporate its use, or that we will continue to be as manual and handy as possible while recognizing that even the most simple forms of technology can help us to achieve better results and make our lives easier (e.g. the possibility of using a mobile phone anywhere vs. only being able to communicate through a land
