Role of health care
provider –

Nurse provide the care
to patien with the main focus of patient centered care.The new technology and
emerging models of care offer patients more health care options and better
coordination of services,both within and across the care continuum.This
approach includes assessment, prevention. Promotion, management and education.

With the advancement of
technology, health care professionals are able to diagnose and treat  a number of patients in short period of time.

 Surgeons operate through just a few small
incisions which is possible via technonolgy.

Nurses assess vital
signs through B.P apparatus as well as provide steam inhalation and manymore.

Huge data can be stored
and saved for years which include patients information regarding health status
and maintains confidentiality.

3-D printing and x- ray
films are done by technicians due to technology only and these and explained
below :-

Electronic
Health Records

Even
health records continue to evolve as a result of technology. Any changes in
documentation of care have a significant impact on nursing practice. The electronic
health record (EHR) is a digital record of a patient’s health history
that may be made up of records from many locations and/or sources, such as
hospitals, providers, clinics, and public health agencies (Huston,
2014). The EHR is available 24 hours a day, 7
days a week and has built-in safeguards to assure patient health information
confidentiality and security.

Genetics
and Genomics

The
American Cancer Society (2011) suggests that genetic testing is already being used for
many reasons. Some of these reasons include:

·      
its predictive value (identification of gene mutations that
might put a person at risk of developing a disease such as cancer, cystic
fibrosis, sickle-cell anemia, or Tay-Sachs disease)

·      
its ability to determine carrier status or whether a person has
a gene mutation which could be passed on to a child

·      
prenatal screening to diagnose some conditions in utero

·      
newborn screening (to determine the existence of a variety of
inherited conditions such as phenylketonuria PKU, cystic fibrosis, or sickle
cell disease)

·      
as a means for checking cancer cells to determine prognosis or
potential benefits of certain types of treatment.

Robotics
Robotics, as an emerging field in healthcare, will also greatly impact how
nursing is practiced in the future. Growth in robotics is expected due to
workforce shortages, a growing elder population, and a call for higher quality
care not subject to human limitations. Areas of projected robotic growth
include nanomedicine, biomechatronics, and the use of robots as direct care
providers.

Biometrics

The
healthcare environment will also continue to be rapidly transformed by new
technology as a result of the need to provide confidentiality and security of
patient data, i.e., to comply with the Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) (Huston,
2014).HIPAA calls for a tiered approach to data
access in which staff members have access to only the information that they
need to know to perform their jobs. To that end, developers of new technology
must assure that access is both targeted and appropriate.

Computerized
Physician/Provider Order Entry and Clinical Decision Support

Computerized
physician/provider order entry (CPOE)
is a rapidly growing technology as a result of its designation as one of three
key patient safety initiatives by the Leapfrog Group, a conglomeration of
non–health care Fortune 500 company leaders committed to modernizing the
current health care system.

3-Dimensional
(3D) Printing

3D
printing, also known as additive manufacturing, “is a method of building
objects layer by microscopic layer, fusing each cross section of molecules
until a complete object is formed”.Typically, this requires scanning an
existing object with a 3D scanner which gathers the data necessary to print on
a 3D bioprinter. The bioprinter prints the object by adding layer after layer
of materials such as plastics, glass, metal, or ceramics.

Conclusion –  Now health care
providers are beginning to deploy digital tools to better understand and serve
their patients. The prospect that digital technologies will make care more
convenient, more coordinated, and more responsive to consumers’ needs is
something.
