    Evidence-Based Proposal and Annotated Bibliography on Technology in Nursing

    This evidence-based proposal is based on the impact of telehealth on quality of care and patient safety. This annotated bibliography focuses on using Telehealth to provide patient care through effective interdisciplinary collaboration in remote settings. Furthermore, the organizational factors are described that influence the use of telehealth in healthcare settings. The rationale for choosing telehealth technology is its forefront nature in providing patient-centered, individualize, and cost-effective care, despite the geographical barriers. This technological advancement thus makes healthcare accessible to patients, improving their health conditions and maintaining patients’ safety.

    I am interested in this technology because it brings a different perspective to interdisciplinary collaboration and nursing practice within and outside healthcare settings while enhancing the team’s workflow. The application of telehealth has been practiced in different health settings to manage chronic diseases and comorbidities. Interdisciplinary team communication and collaboration, along with nurses’ work, is also streamlined due to telehealth.

    A study based on telehealth showed a marked improvement from 20% in patients with mental health problems and 42% in outcomes for patients with cardiac problems (Snoswell et al., 2021). Therefore, telehealth implications in healthcare settings improve the outcomes of patients. The databases I used for this research are PubMed, Wiley Online Library, Frontiers, and Sage Journals for literature review, and the keywords I used for my research are telehealth and its benefits, interdisciplinary team and telehealth, nursing practice and telehealth, and quality of care and patient safety related to telehealth.

Journal of Gerontological Nursing, 46(9), 9–13. https://doi.org/10.3928/00989134-20200811-03 

    This article focuses on using telehealth for patient-centered care through nursing practices and interdisciplinary team collaboration. In patient-centered care, the patient and family are the central points, where nurses and healthcare staff collaborate and communicate with the patient to provide care and safety through remote patient monitoring. Thus, telehealth helps the healthcare staff to provide acute care to that patient through shared decisions, which streamlines the teams. Nurses also positively adhere to telehealth as fewer patient visits and stays lowered the burden of patient case documentation.

    It also saves the patient time and the cost of transportation; the team has remote collaboration and communication through communication technologies and platforms such as Skype and Google Meetings. I chose this article because it provided details on patient-centered care and interaction with nurses and teams through remote monitoring and collaboration to achieve the outcomes for the organization, as there was a disruption in team workflow and communication gap.

    The primary focus of this source is to investigate the patient experience of rehabilitation services through telehealth and interdisciplinary team evaluations and the privacy and security of patient health information. Remote patient care reduces the barriers to care delivery. This lab launched a HIPAA-compliant program for patients and clinicians for rehabilitation therapy, and patients show satisfaction with their information protection and privacy.

    Including the telehealth HIPAA complaint program will help the nurse secure the patient information during the transmission and respect the patient’s autonomy. Information and communication technology (ICT) will enhance interdisciplinary team communication and collaboration through information flow and gathering, improving the patient’s quality of care and safety. This article is relevant to interdisciplinary team practice as it will help protect the patient’s health information by integrating HIPAA-compliant applications.

    The primary focus of this article is on the organizational factors that influence the use of telehealth during COVID-19 across US hospitals. According to this resource, telehealth has improved care delivery, quality and patient safety during a pandemic in rural areas compared to urban areas. The factors that enhance the capabilities of telehealth were infrastructure, healthcare staff preparedness, patient adherence toward technology use, and interdisciplinary team contribution in policy development for the use of technology. Patients in rural areas have more technology adherence therefore, patients receive more healthcare services from healthcare professionals.

    The staff preparedness includes the nurse’s training and programme for telehealth use. The nurse’s training and education on remote patient monitoring help nurses to provide care to the patient in urban areas and educate the patients about technology advantages like improving quality care and safety. Patient adherence toward remote monitoring enhance their quality of life as they will receive acute care from different professionals at a time. This article briefly explained the organizational factors influencing the technology used for patient quality of care and safety. Patient adherence is directly involved in remote patient monitoring if the patient collaborates with nurses and interdisciplinary teams in an organization, the quality of care and safety of the patient will enhance.

    This source focuses on implementing telehealth in a healthcare setting in the United States. The study was done on the 8 hospital samples from Montana, Nevada and North Dakota. Before the implementation of telehealth, some factors influenced the implementation of telehealth patients in remote areas, health insurance, transportation barriers, interruption in nurses and interdisciplinary team workflow, and infrastructure. The disruption in nurse and interdisciplinary work generate more errors in patient information and treatment, which lead to more patient visit, stays and cost of medicine.

    After implementing telehealth, interdisciplinary team workflow was streamlined because technological innovations helped them to share patient information through a shared platform. Nurses experience the elimination of errors due to a reduction in workload and provide improved care and safety to patients. The reason to chose this article is disruption in the interdisciplinary team, and nurses will lead to more errors in patient care which will increase team and nurses workload. Therefore, telehealth implementation in healthcare setting will streamline the workflow of the team and nurse and impact the patient’s quality of care and safety.

    Summary of Recommendation

    In summary, the articles briefly explained the importance and impact of telehealth on nursing practices and interdisciplinary team workflow. The nurse training and educational programmes aided the use of telehealth to improve nurse care practices remotely and also impact patient care of quality and safety.

    The organizational factors that influence the implementation of telehealth technology are the organizational resources, interdisciplinary team adherence and preparedness of nurses to adapt to the changes. Interdisciplinary team behaviour regarding the learning of new processes, which help them to communicate and collaborate remotely, will improve workflow and adherence to the standard guidelines. If the team do not show positive behaviour in collaboration and communication, there will be more errors and disruption in information flow. These interruptions will delay the implementation process of telehealth.

    Secondly, nurse training and education on telehealth will enable them to achieve telehealth benefits through remote patient monitoring. Remote patient monitering will allow patients to have access to healthcare services, better quality of care and patient satisfaction. Continuous patient monitering develop trust among patient and healthcare providers, which improves the patient’s quality of care and eliminate barriers to care such as cost and time for transportation. The evaluation of technical equipment will ensure that equipment requirements for telehealth implementation. The evaluation of the technical resources will enable the interdisciplinary team to collaborate with external stakeholders to implement telehealth.

    An organization needs more resources for implementation to ensure the improved patient quality care and safety process is completed on time.The implementation of telehealth in healthcare setting not only expand the healthcare services for patients with chronic exacerbations. It also improves the quality of care of the patient and safety through interaction with the interdisciplinary team. The work of the interdisciplinary team is also improved because the team have a shared communication platform to share patient information and keep patient confidentiality and privacy secure. Moreover, the implementation of telehealth is also supported by Medicare to enhance patient safety and quality of care (Gajarawala & Pelkowski, 2021).

    Conclusion

    In conclusion, telehealth in healthcare improves quality care and patient safety. A shared communication platform enhances patient-centered care and interdisciplinary team communication and collaboration. The recommendation of telehealth is also opted through evidence by the Shily Lab. Factors include policy, infrastructure, health insurance and adherence to telehealth use. Implementing telehealth eliminates the barriers to care and streamlines the interdisciplinary workflow.
