Innovations In HMIS Technology

The purpose of this assignment is to brainstorm a new type of health  care technology that might contribute to the HMIS evolution.

The  Internet is completely revolutionizing the way technology can be used in  health care. Health care information is becoming more widely accessible  through a range of telehealth options, and consumers are now far more  computer savvy than at any time in the past. Individuals can use the  Internet to research symptoms or diseases, as well as possible treatment  plans, and seek out medical professionals or advice.

Technological  advancements are also helping individuals to be more tuned in to their  own bodies and aware of their individual health patterns and activities.  Smartwatches and other wearable fitness trackers can track heart rate,  movement and activity, and sleep cycles, while smartphones enable users  to manage caloric intake, monitor diabetes, and even perform health  services remotely, such as measuring blood pressure or conducting  ultrasounds.

For this assignment, brainstorm a new type of health  care technology that you believe would contribute to the health  management information systems (HMIS) evolution. This technological  advancement should either not yet exist or should serve to enhance an  existing technology to achieve an entirely new objective. What health  care problems or challenges have you noticed for which there is not yet a  solution?

It is essential for health care administrators to be  aware of the rapidly evolving and ever-changing field of health  technology, both in terms of current as well as upcoming informational  and system advancements. Assume that you are a health care administrator  for an organization and you have been tasked with presenting this new  technology to your organization’s key stakeholders. After selecting your  topic for this assignment, compose a 750-1,000-word proposal that  addresses the following:

  1. Describe your new HMIS technology  and what purpose it will serve. Who will most benefit from it? What gap  will it fill in the health care technology field? How will this  technology improve the quality of health care that clinicians can offer?
  2. What  are the potential advantages and disadvantages of this HMIS technology  for the consumer? In this case, the consumer is both the health care  organization and the individual user or patient.
  3. How will the use and integration of this technology impact digital equity in the HMIS field?
  4. How  will this technology collect, read, and interpret health data? Why and  how will this data be useful to the health care organization?
  5. From  an administrative perspective, describe when, how, and where you  propose this technology first be introduced, and discuss how you foresee  it impacting the organization.

You are required to use two qualified references in addition to your textbook for this paper.

Prepare  this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style  Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not  required.
