This is an exciting and challenging time to be involved in healthcare informatics. Technologies are being developed that are rapidly changing the face of medical practice and organizations are struggling to maintain their edge in implementing systems, while reimbursement for services is decreasing and budgets are shrinking.

Technology impacts everyone involved in every aspect of patient care, from the admitting clerk at the front desk to allied health personnel and technicians to medical providers. Select one of the following technologies and provide a summary of its use in today’s healthcare environment.

  • Speech recognition technology
  • Natural language processing
  • Bar coding technology
  • Optical character and gesture recognition technologies
  • Clinical decision support systems
  • Computerized order entry
  • Electronic prescribing
  • Telehealth/Telemedicine
  • Mobile and Wireless Technologies
  • Point of Care Information Systems
  • Radio frequency identification tracking

In a 3- to 5-page essay, using sources to support your responses, answer the following questions.

  • How is your chosen technology utilized, and by whom?
  • What are the benefits to using this technology?
  • What are the challenges to its utilization?
  • Is this a “first generation” technology at this time, that is, are improvements already being developed or seen for the near future?

Complete your 3- to 5-page response in Microsoft Word using Times New Roman or a similar font, 12 point, double-spaced. Your paper should be formatted according to APA Requirements with any sources and references properly cited.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
