These are two discussion questions, could they be just about one page each. Module 2 Your reading assignments this week have taken you through the Human Technology Interface and Informatics tools used to promote patient safety and quality outcomes. For this discussion post, think about all of the different health technologies that exist within healthcare organizations today and describe how they are meant to improve patient safety and quality. Also, how may they negatively impact quality of safety if not used appropriately or effectively? Locate some specific examples from journals in which there was a failure of technology that negatively impacted quality and describe your thoughts on how to avoid these failures. Note: There will be a major Health IT paper near the end of class that also has you select an emerging healthcare technology to write about, so if you read that assignment before completing this discussion post, you may be able to utilize much of your work on this discussion post within that paper as well.
Module 4 For this discussion post, watch the linked Youtube video https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C0qB4w_fk8 (60 minutes) Write a discussion post detailing your thoughts on the video. Discuss forms of telehealth that you learned about in the video that were new to you. Also discuss any forms of telehealth that you have personally had experience with. Finally, discuss specific examples of how you see telehealth as a way to promote population health in both rural communities as well as in the hospital setting.
