This presentation should be specific to the role of healthcare informatics and emerging technology in relationship to CHF patients. Additional requirements loaded in files. Finished product at least 10 slides.Role of Healthcare Informatics and Emerging Technology.


uNU499 Nursing Capstone


uEmerging technologies:

uImprove self-care in CHF patients

uReduce healthcare costs associated with CHF

uReduce rates of rehospitalization and mortality

uFavorable clinical outcomes


uTelemonitoring devices remotely monitor vital signs of patients

uMonitor & follow up CHF patients


uLearning Outcomes

uOutline laws that govern information technology

uDefine the impact of information technology on care of CHF patients

uBe able to apply technology tools (telehealth) to support safe process of care for CHF patients

uUse information technologies (telehealth) for patients CHF patients


uHistory of health informatics in the US Healthcare System

uStarted when computer technology started managing large amounts of data

uIn 1960’s health informatics started standardizing

uAmerican Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) stablished the initial standards for healthcare data reporting

uStandards included:

uHealth information system security

uLaboratory message exchange

uData content

uProperties for electronic health record systems


uHistory of health informatics in the US Healthcare System Cont.

uNew computer technology laid the foundation for technologies like Electronic Heath Record (EHR)

uBioinformatics introduced in late 1970s

uProfessional bodies & government worked to integrate technology in:

uFormat for patient registration

uPatient observation & medical orders,

uPatient discharge,

uFinancial transactions

uGlobal standards ultimately led to the development of field of health informatics

uThe Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act)

uPart of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009

uSupports the implementation of health care information technology & electronic health records (EHR)

uIncreased the possible legal liability for non-compliance with information technology

uIncreases privacy & security protections

uThe Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, HIPAA

uSupports the privacy & security of Protected Health Information (PHI)

uProtected Health Information (PHI) includes:

uThe patient’s name & address,

uDate of birth,

uMedical data,

uPayment history & account number etc.

uTrack all unexpected access to this information

uViolation of the Act results to fine per record


uThe Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA)

uSpeeds patient accessibility to effective & safe products

uGoverns information exchange

uRequires FDA to maintain:

uAn accurate electronic registration

uListing database that is searchable

uIdentifies and informs risk-based inspections

uTelehealth in Congestive Heart failure (CHF)

uTelehealth allows remote management of CHF patients

uFacilitates early identification of symptoms & signs of cardiac decompensation

uAllows quick response to patients needs

uReduces the possibility of hospitalization

uTelehealth in Congestive Heart failure (CHF) Cont.

uParameters monitored remotely in CHF patients include:

uBlood pressure

uPeripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2)

uHeart rate


uHeart rhythm

uPatient education

uMonitoring of adherence to treatment


uApplication (Tablet)

uCHF patients be provided with tablet

uTablet linked to:

uAn electrocardiogram

uWeight scales

uA Device to monitor blood pressure

uData transmitted electronically from patients to the telemedical center daily includes:

uBlood pressure

uPeripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2)

uHeart rate


uHeart rhythm


uApplication (Tablet) Cont.

uDirect communication with the cardiologist of the patient & the telemedical center

uNurse to conduct phone interviews with patients

uRegular evaluation of the patient’s physiological data

uEvaluation of the patient’s medication

uEvaluate patient’s symptoms

uPatient education
