Executive Summary

Introduction

Telehealth is the utilization of modern information and communication technology, such as computers, to gain accessibility to health care services from a remote location and to oversee the treatment of persons (Muzammil, 2020). Patients living in more remote places, for example, benefit from improved chronic disease management provided by telehealth systems. The selected telehealth technology for an institution or practice environment is remote patient monitoring technology. This technology encompasses the use of modern technologies to track and collect medical information from clients and digitally transfer this information to physicians for evaluation and if needed, suggestions and guidance. 

Relevance and Importance

The identification of areas in which an organization may be lacking in its ability to meet the requirements of patients is one of the primary purposes of a needs assessment. The organization will be able to plan for a variety of programs if it first identifies any deficiencies. The scope of a project as well as the outcomes that are intended can be determined through the evaluation. The process of making decisions can also be improved by doing a requirements assessment because it allows for the acquisition of pertinent information regarding a project. In addition, the assessment process can be used to determine which of a community’s needs are the most urgent. However, data security is a major issue that needs to be addressed across the board in the healthcare industry today. The transmission of clients’ data as well as its security have to be thoroughly evaluated in order to guarantee that patients’ data will not be made public.

Key Issues That the Technology Will Address

The application of technology to the promotion and support of patients located in remote places is what constitutes telehealth. Patients who live in rural or otherwise inaccessible places have a more difficult time getting to medical facilities for a variety of reasons. Because of this, the utilization of remote patient monitoring technology will make it possible for caregivers to interact with patients regardless of the geographic distance between them. Many hospitals and other medical centres make use of video conferencing as part of their normal implementation of telehealth technologies. The quality of healthcare institutions in more remote places, as well as accessibility to those institutions, has increased because of telehealth. This technology has also addressed issues such as communication, responsiv

Stakeholder Meeting

· Draft an announcement and agenda for a meeting with stakeholders to present the key aspects of a plan to adopt the new or upgraded telehealth technology proposed in the previous assessment. Then, develop a 12-slide presentation. Your slide deck should consist of 10-15 slides, including a title slide and references slide.

· Use the speaker’s notes section of each slide to develop your talking points and cite your sources, as appropriate.

· Cite at least three credible sources from peer-reviewed journals or professional industry publications to support your presentation.

· List your sources on the references slide at the end of your presentation.

Introduction

Note: Each assessment in this course builds upon the work you have completed in previous assessments. Therefore, complete the assessments in the order in which they are presented.

As a nurse leader, you must be able to identify the key stakeholders in the adoption of a new or upgraded telehealth technology. In addition, you must be able to communicate the benefits and strategic value of the technology to obtain their support and ensure effective use of the technology. One method of communicating with stakeholders is to introduce them to the technology in a department meeting. In this meeting, it is important to discuss how this technology will enhance care and improve quality and safety outcomes.

Preparation

You have completed your assessment of the need for a new or upgraded telehealth technology and presented your findings and recommendations to executive leaders. Their response to your assessment was positive, and they have asked that you introduce the proposed technology to other key stakeholders. Consequently, you have decided to host a stakeholders’ meeting to promote support and buy-in for the new technology.

To prepare for the assessment, you are encouraged to think about how you can generate wider stakeholder interest and support within your organization or practice setting for the acquisition of the new or upgraded telehealth technology currently under consideration, based on the results of your needs assessment. Consider who is most likely to have the greatest influence on key project success and who might be a good choice to champion the project.

Requirements

The meeting preparation and presentation requirements outlined below, correspond to the grading criteria in the Stakeholder Meeting Scoring Guide, so be sure to address each point. Read the performance-level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed. The Guiding Questions: Stakeholder Meeting document, linked above, provides additional considerations that may be helpful in completing your assessment. In addition, be sure to note the requirements below for presentation format and length and for citing supporting evidence.
