Technology Innovations and Healthcare

To prepare for this Discussion, search the Walden Library or the Internet for a technological innovation in healthcare (ex: Blue button; telemedicine; computing; video gaming in healthcare; robotic and computer-assisted surgeries; simulation devices, etc.). This innovation should be different than the mobile device you discussed in Week 3.

By Day 4, post a summary of the innovation. Be sure to include comprehensive responses to the following:

  • What is the technological innovation and how is it used?
  • Whom will it impact?
  • How could it improve healthcare quality and delivery?
  • How might the innovation evolve in the future?

Support your explanation with weekly readings and the resource/s you found.
