Question 1.   Data Analytics

View the following activity to address the discussion scenario.

Consider the scenario above to address the following.

  • Do you recommend that the data analyst examine aggregate data, detailed data, or both, to investigate this quality issue? Please explain your rationale.
  • Do you recommend that the data analyst use a retrospective data warehouse, clinical data store, or both, to investigate the mortality rate? Please explain your rationale.
  • What type of tools or analytic approaches is relevant for use by this analyst? Please explain your rationale.

Now, conduct a search for evidence. Select three scholarly sources of information describing the challenges of utilizing data in the clinical setting.

  • Provide a brief overview of the findings of each source of evidence.

Question 2.  New and Emerging Technologies for Patient Care

Review the various technology tools described in this week’s Learning Resources.

·  Pick ONE of the technologies listed below or choose one on Genomics or Nanotechnology. Reflect on how they are used and how its use impacts the quality of care. Consider cost and reimbursement.

·  Consider how your identified technology tools might impact nursing practice if it were more widely used. What are some barriers preventing increased usage? How could wider implementation be facilitated?

New and Emerging Technologies for Patient Care:

 Aging in place technologies

 Artificial pancreas and Wearable artificial kidney

Biometric clothing

 Cognitive computing for healthcare

Disinfecting robots

Exoskeleton for spinal cord injuries

 Fall prevention technologies

 Magnetic Bracelet for Fecal Continence Control
