Another example of an emerging useful technology in clinical practice is the use of smartTVs. Some hospitals are providing discharge and medication instructions to patients on arepeating loop on in-room smart TVs. This is useful in clinical practice because it helps toreinforce the patient education provided in the clinical setting. The data generated shows anincrease in patient engagement and knowledge about conditions, medications and dischargeinstructions (stmary.edu, 2018). The increased engagement and knowledge improves healthcareby improving the patient’s understanding of their disease process, injury or treatment. Anengaged patient is more likely to be compliant with their treatment, and therefore have a betteroutcome.ConclusionTechnology in healthcare is evolving rapidly. While it advances at breakneck speed, wemust maintain its usefulness in the nursing practice, as we balance that with protecting everypatient’s right to privacy.
