Hi all! I think that there should be considerations for technological support for the VN. Yes, the technology infrastructure could be a heavy lift at first, but we need to consider the staff needed for troubleshooting/maintaining it.
The build is one thing, but the IT support staff is another. And, let’s be honest, the internal Hospital IT staff lacks the layers to focus on this element. Even today, I’m finding that hospital/health systems are just beginning to expand their PMO and IT offices to include a “product” mindset and roles to bridge the gap between the clinical need, the tech builds and the system/setup.
While internet/IOT infrastructure, cybersecurity, and data mapping are all top of mind for executives – as an Snr. Capability (clinical software integration product) Lead and RN, I see this as a blindspot and additional need. Good chat!
