Jeanne Venella talks with Matt Birnholz about the importance of integrating new technologies within the nursing field.
At the Villanova Health Summit, Jeanne Venella, Chief Nursing Officer of Bernoulli, was interviewed by Dr. Matt Birnholz, Vice President and Medical Director for ReachMD, about the challenges of adopting and integrating new technology into nursing workflow.
Venella stressed the importance of including nurses in healthcare technology evaluation, implementation and training. If end-users are not involved in the selection, adoption and implementation of a technology, then the likelihood that they will become owners of that product is significantly lower, which could impair patient safety and clinical workflow initiatives.
The Villanova Health Summit brings together renowned leaders in the healthcare community representing diverse points of expertise such as bioengineering, law, ethics, hospital administration, bench-to-bedside research, and patient care.
