NURS 6051 | NURS 6051 – Transforming Nursing and Healthcare Through Technology | Walden University
It is important to take into consideration both the benefits and challenges of involving an experienced nurse as a leader for implementing health information technologies (HIT). On the one hand, having a nurse in this role can provide valuable insights into any potential risks associated with using such systems—as they often have experience dealing with different types of medical issues which can help identify any potential pitfalls before they arise. In addition, nurses are better communicators than others on the team and may be able to simplify complex concepts for audiences that provide HIT.
It is also important to remember that the same individuals may face challenges in participating in a project of this type, as they might not be familiar with the most recent technologies. Moreover, their hectic workload can make it difficult to devote enough resources or time to a project. This could have a negative impact on the timeline or budget of completing the project. However, by taking these things into consideration prior to embarking on such endeavors and properly preparing beforehand —this should minimize these difficulties and ultimately lead to successful implementations that take advantage of all available tools and personnel.
