MEDITECH Associate Vice President Cathy Turner was featured in Minority Nurse's blog called "The Latest Technology in Health Care." Turner, along with other industry thought leaders, gives her take on what technology is coming in the not-too-distant future and how it will impact nurses. 

Below is an excerpt from the Minority Nurse blog:


Technology in health care is always changing and improving—this means faster, more accurate, and safer ways to do your job. Here’s the scoop on the latest and what’s coming in the not-too-distant future.

Technology has been making our lives easier throughout history. While some people are concerned that more efficient technology prevents nurses from spending time with patients, experts say that this couldn’t be further from the truth.

“There is a fear that technology takes nurses away from the patient to spend time at the computer. As interface capabilities increase, more time can be spent with the patient,” argues Nikkia Whitaker, MSN, RN, CCRN, clinical technology integration manager at Dayton Children’s Hospital. “Having systems work together to decrease multiple workflows and eliminate manual processes is what will help nurses appreciate the emergence of technology.”
