In this Discussion you are asked to select an emerging technology and evaluate its cost-effectiveness and potential adoption. Many novel technologies require significant rethinking of current workflows, roles, culture, and financial models. You are asked to consider how the technology you chose affects these aspects of the current health ecosystem. Likewise, leaders must also consider that some emerging technologies completely lack a financial policy framework.
- Assess an emerging technology trend in the Learning Resources or one that you prefer to research on your own.
Select one emerging trend in the health care and/or health care technology industry. What are three take-a-ways from this course that you could use to implement this trend? Given the financial alignment models in the health care industry today, would this technology be readily accepted and cost justified? If yes, explain. If no, what changes in financing policy would have to occur to deem this technology sustainable?
