Nursing and technology: a love/hate relationship


, : Nursing and technology: a love/hate relationship. Nursing Economic$ 28(6): 405-408

The fundamental value of information technology in clinical settings is no longer in question, as clinicians enter and retrieve information in order to deliver care and the benefit of ubiquitous availability to clinical data using computers cannot be overplayed. The question now is how to increase adoption, improve productivity, and support transformational changes in health care delivery. It is important to get the interplay between people, process, and technology right for successful implementations which support care transformation. We must lead projects with the clinical practice changes being enabled by the technology, and then ensure the technology supports the practice change. Nurse leaders must consider letting the quality improvement process drive and define when and how technology is used, running our projects as practice changes and not IT implementations, with nursing sponsors owning the projects and leading the charge.

The variability of the coagulation properties (r, k20, a30) of milk in the various stages of lactation was studied to check whether these parameters may be used in the milk test records to assess milk quality. For this reason, the lactodynamograph...
