As we integrate technology more and more into our lives, many industries are also looking to implement the same technology to better serve their audience. Within the Medical field, technology is one of the backbones of the industry. For nurses this technology is necessary in providing the proper care for patients and providing the best experience for the patients and their families.
Microsoft recently held an Empowering Health event in Belgium, to discuss the impact of technology on the future of nursing. At this event, over 200 professionals in the health industry discussed the impact of technology in this “mobile first, cloud first” world. The discussion covered many areas of technology in medical from how nurses hold data from patients to the use of applications to better serve patients in hospitals. Joan Hankin, Global Director for marketing at Intel, was asked to speak at this event and reported on her own ideas regarding the impact of technology in the nursing community.
