Apollo Nursing is a digital resource for Specialist Nurses, but do we really understand the potential impact of Digital health in the future of healthcare and the impact it will have on specialist nursing service delivery?
Britain’s Nurses (britainsnurses.co.uk) is producing a series of step by step guides to enable you to make sense of the potential impact of telehealth on your nursing service and to ensure you are planning for the future. The King’s Fund Digital Health Congress in September is bringing together experts from around the world to discuss the impact digital health will have on healthcare, particularly for those with longterm conditions. This link will take you to the page giving more details about the conference , at the bottom of the page you will find links to the step by step guides exploring digital health.
Britain’s Nurses is a website which aims to help nurses help each other. It’s a great resource for the latest news in the nursing world. Apollo even got a much appreciated shout out recently.
Digital health will involve mobile, agile forms of working. There is no doubt that Specialist Nurses will be pivotal in the implementation of these new ways of ‘patient centred’ working. If, like me, the thought of ever increasing technology and ‘big data’ makes you rush for the comfort of your note pad and paper, take comfort in the fact that simple easy to understand information is out there for nurses, you just need to know where to look, and Apollo is here to help!
