How considering human factors when choosing technology does or could impact practice environments

 Consider as appropriate the issues to follow (all may not apply to your given topic). · How technology does or could impact practice environments · How technology does or could impact patient safety · How technology does or could impact patient outcomes · Cost · Compliance issues · Overall benefits and limitations Implications for Nurse Leader · Does background/description support need for technology to support nursing practice? · Do benefits outweigh limitations including cost? · What are organizational implications? Compliance issues related to considering human factors when choosing technology Would probably focus on FDA requirements for medical devices (link below) – these are primarily for patients – but there is some very good background info on user experience. https://www.fda.gov/downloads/medicaldevices/…/ucm259760.pdf · Overall benefits and limitations of considering human factors when choosing technology The text talks about benefits—doesn’t really discuss limitations. The obvious answer is that we should consider human factors when choosing technology – but do leaders have the expertise to do so? Implications for Nurse Leader · Does background/description support need to consider human factors when choosing technology to support nursing practice? There is little doubt that human factors should be considered—I would probably focus on how the nurse leader can truly understand the user experience though (interviews, focus-groups, involving point of care users in technology decisions, etc.). Is the user-experience something that leaders even consider? · Do benefits outweigh limitations including cost when considering human factors when choosing technology? Costs really would be associated with not considering human factors. · What are organizational implications for considering human factors when choosing technology? Should yield increased effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction—all good. Source below – may or may not be helpful. Shultz, S., & Hand, M. W. (2015). Usability: A Concept Analysis.
