I am able to access the information as I am talking with patients and provide copies of that information to patients for future use. I enjoy using the Cerner EMR program because it helps me provide information using different technologies to improve patient care and safety at the bedside.
One of the way to support this fact is that some nurse use social media for a way for patient to gain information on how to have health habits in life. Also if nurse are have knowledge in using a plan to care for the patient’s needs, they can do it through social media. An additional reason that social medial is an advantage for now is that a patient committee will establish a list of resources that could give the nurses information. So later, the patients will have the information. The goal is to make sure patients have high quality of information to obtain a higher level of patient care.
Healthcare professionals and organizations view social media as an avenue to facilitate patient engagement and improve the delivery of patient-centered care (Adams 293). Healthcare organizations have also began to use social media outlets to disseminate information quickly, advertise, collect data, as well as, educate large numbers of people.

To begin, I believe social media allows people to access information and articles that contain information about mental illness and to share people’s experiences living with their illnesses.

In my opinion, on of the most beneficial uses of social media for those living with mental illness is the formation of ‘peer-to-peer’ support groups.

Technology innovation had increased convenience and improved access to a patient- centered health care system.

Along with being convenient, telemedicine allows you to save time. Being able to log on to your computer or tablet allows you to receive medical care in a matter of minutes instead of hours that involve commuting and waiting to be seen. In addition to time savings, telemedicine keeps you out of the waiting room, limiting your exposure to illnesses from other patients in a doctor’s waiting room. The final benefit of telemedicine is affordability.
The Mayo Clinic has developed a model that allows their physician contributors the ability to avoid burnout allowing them to continue in their research or treatment of patients. (Swenson & Kabcenell, 2016) Such freedom and the encouragement to decompress are extremely attractive to research doctors, specifically those who conduct research on various disorders that affect children, such as ADHD. In fact, the Mayo Clinic is so confident in the content of their Web site and the credibility of those who contribute; they provide the reader with a direct profile to each doctor that contributed to the content on the site. (Mayo Clinic,
People have the ability to search for an abundance of information at their fingertips. It has improved people’s jobs, practically in fields such as construction and design, and education through Internet access.
