IFSM Information Systems in Health Care Organizations Discussion for Week 8
Topic: Future of Health Care IT.
With everything that we have covered so far in class, and what we read and see in the world around us, it is obvious that major changes are happening all around us. And, changes seem to be occurring at an ever increasing rate. As part of these changes, there will be changes in how healthcare is delivered to the society. Many new technologies are becoming available, although some are not yet in common use. These advancements are likely to result in cheaper, easier access to healthcare and new paradigms in healthcare delivery.
GROUP 4: Do some web research and find a new or emerging technology that you believe will improve patient outcomes and/or improve the delivery of health care.
