  • Slide 1

You’re in “Vila Health: Exploring the New Technologies in Education. “Hello, my name is Student, and I am looking forward to exploring the role of new technology in transforming the teaching of health care. Come with me and discover more about this.

  • Slide 2

This paper argues that the integration of new teaching technology in healthcare is crucial in the present day healthcare industry. It assists in learning and makes the training of the healthcare worker specific and makes the healthcare worker aware of the current advancements, practices, and methods of patient care. It also brings education resources closer by removing barriers that would have otherwise made it difficult to access such resources due to geographical constraints. According to Alowais et al. (2023), technology-based learning tools can mimic actual life medical cases that can enable the doctors to make better decisions and hence improve on the quality of service they provide to the patients. This is because the training technology enhances the knowledge and practical skills of the health workers, and enhances the quality and efficiency of health care and also shifts the focus to the patient.

Steps in a Plan to Implement Changes in Existing Technologies

  • Slide 3

First, the hospital needs to assess which parts of the training rooms are in need of repairs or other modifications. This test will pose questions to the nursing trainers, students and staff nurses on their perception of the challenges they face and their expectations. In light of the results, the hospital will ensure that it obtains the next generation of manikins and virtual reality modeling technologies (Jung, 2022). They will assemble a buying committee that will be responsible for investigating the market and selecting the most suitable technologies that meet certain criteria such as effectiveness in integration with other technologies as well as price.

Thirdly, the hospital will have a team of nursing teachers, IT personnel, and EHR specialists to enhance the way Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems are taught in nursing schools (Mollart et al. , 2020). This task group will be focusing on the current program of the organization and try to identify how EHR training can be integrated. They will customize the training programs and ensure the staff nurses are taking the details of how EHRs work as part of their refresher courses. The hospital will also coordinate with EHR vendors to ensure that interfaces between systems are optimized and offer support (Dinh-Le et al. , 2019).

Lastly, the hospital will collaborate with software developers in a bid to ensure that EHRs are compatible with mobile devices to allow for their use in a clinical context (Holdsworth et al. , 2020). They will evaluate the feasibility of the EHRs in terms of their effectiveness and functionality on mobile platforms and the ease of use for patients and providers. It is planned to teach the nurses how to use EHRs through the mobile, and it is going to be done through training (Samadbeik et al. , 2020). The hospital will also ensure that the use of mobile devices is safe and secure by providing safe Wi-Fi connection and help in controlling the use of the devices.

Problems and Contingency

  • Slide 4

Thus, the hospital is aware that these changes to the educational tools may lead to some issues and that is why it has taken measures on what to do if there occurs any challenge. First of all, it is important to note that such advanced manikins and virtual reality technologies as we plan to introduce take time to obtain and set up. If that happens, the hospital will continue utilizing the existing training model to minimize the effects of nurse education as much as possible. Secondly, if there exist any issues with the technical side of the implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR), the hospital will employ a dedicated IT support team to identify and solve the issues (Huang et al. , 2020).  The aim of these backup plans is to ensure that the shift is as smooth as possible and to minimize on any difficulties that may occur.

Resource Requirements for a Successful Technology Change Implementation

  • Slide 5

Consequently, the hospital will have to spend a lot of money and time on people to ensure that the improvements made to its training rooms are fruitful. In order to execute the advanced manikins and virtual reality simulation technologies for the project, we shall require simulation techs, teachers, and IT experts (Ricci et al. , 2022). This will also mean that the hospital will have to invest in new manikins and virtual reality equipment, which is likely to be quite expensive, approximately $2 million. This price estimate involves the initial purchase, and any possible repairs and alterations in the property in the succeeding five years.

This application is going to require a lot of technical support to get this application going live. The hospital has to assign a specific IT support team that will ensure that all the new technologies and EHR systems work in harmony (Sheikh et al. , 2021). The manikins and virtual reality tools are like other equipment that have to be repaired whenever they develop a problem, as well as the software has to be updated frequently. However, there is still a need for technical support to integrate the system with mobile devices in the hospital environment. This entails coming up with ways of integrating with the mobile app developers and IT professionals to ensure that the system is safe and can integrate with other systems (Ehrler et al. , 2019).

Finally, it can be said that the plans that the hospital has in mind regarding the enhancement of the simulation lab will involve a lot of time, money and people. The cost of the program will be approximately $2 million over five years. Technical assistance is crucial in order to maintain the new technologies and addressing new conditions requiring intervention. This will ensure that the nursing students and staff nurses are able to have a comprehensive and efficient training.

The End-User Training Requirements

  • Slide 6

To make the changes that are required to the hospital exercise rooms, it might be necessary to determine the training required by the users and ensure that it is given to them. The management of the hospital has planned to incorporate the advanced manikins and virtual reality modeling technologies, and it is crucial to know to what extent the end users have prior knowledge of these changes. Smart Et Al (2020) say that this evaluation will assist in ensuring that the training programs are in a way that will meet the needs of the nursing students and the staff nurses.

It is very crucial to determine the end user’s knowledge and abilities because it will influence the training lessons that will be made. For instance, if most of the end users are familiar with the basic modeling tools, the training can be advanced to include more elaborate functionalities. However, if there is little experience, then a more extensive and basic training program could be required (Kwok et al. , 2019).

It is crucial in ensuring that the end users are well informed of what is expected of them. These goals should describe the expectations and deliverables for nursing students and staff nurses, with the aim of improving training rooms and the integration of EHRs (Mollart et al. , 2020). Ensuring that goals are properly set for the success of the training will ensure the users are aware of what is expected of them to achieve the set goals.

As for the help, users should receive some support at the beginning and further on. However, the first level of help for instance could be, getting into hands on training, user guides and accessing technology experts. The end users should be able to seek support services, such as help desk services and repeated training, to ensure they are updated on the current technologies and best practices (Akhter Md Hasib et al. , 2022).

However, the last but not the least, a proper end user training program is required in order for the changes in the hospital’s exercise rooms and the integration of EHR to be efficient. This entails assessing the current knowledge of the students and the nursing staff, establishing goals for their performance, and providing the nursing students and the staff nurses with initial guidance and follow up assistance to ensure that they are able to utilise these enhancements efficiently for the benefit of the patients and for teaching purposes.

A Plan to Evaluate the Effectiveness of a Technology Change

  • Slide 7

This paper presents a clear and systematic approach that the hospital will adopt to assess the effectiveness of these changes after the implementation of the technology. First, a baseline assessment will be done to check on the current status of modeling labs, EHR integration and the flexibility of the mobile devices. According to Wosny et al. (2023), the research data will be collected through surveying the nursing students, teachers, and staff nurses and asking them questions about their experiences and struggles.

The hospital will conduct a post-implementation review if and when the changes to the technology are made. This will include things like establishing how effective nursing students are in handling fake real life scenarios that are modeled by the new manikins and VR technology (Shorey & Ng, 2021). The other data will be collected on how well the two EHR systems when combined will function, the overall aim being to improve on paperwork and patient care. Thus, the impact of transforming mobile devices for clinical contexts will be assessed by examining the usage data, including how often and with what success the staff nurses use their phones to access EHRs. Any challenges in the technology or issues that may arise will be easily discovered and rectified at the earliest convenience (Sipanoun et al. , 2022).

Feedback will be collected through the use of polls and feedback meetings with the stakeholders at regular intervals to determine their satisfaction levels and to get more ideas on how to improve (Pant et al. , 2022). The hospital will also examine records from before the changes and after the changes to evaluate the nursing instructions and patient care.

Criteria for Evaluation

To make sure that the evaluation of success is accurate and to help plan for future changes, clear, measurable evaluation standards will be set:To make sure that the evaluation of success is accurate and to help plan for future changes, clear, measurable evaluation standards will be set: The nursing students’ effectiveness in managing certain medical scenarios through the enhanced manikins will be the gauge for their success. Some of the particular factors include quicker turnaround, more precise management, and better overall aggregate exercise performance (Gillan et al. , 2022).

The integration of EHR will also help in recording the number of errors made in paperwork, the time spent on paperwork, and the ease of accessing patient information (Sipanoun et al. , 2022). Stakeholder feedback polls will also be used to evaluate the success, such as questions about the user experience, the effectiveness of the learning process, and suggestions for the improvement of the program (Pant et al. , 2022). These measured criteria will allow the hospital to assess the effectiveness of changes in technology, and make rational decisions about future changes and investment in nursing education and health care delivery (Pant et al., 2022).

These measurable criteria will enable the hospital to quantitatively assess the effectiveness of technology changes and provide clear guidance for future adjustments and investments in nursing education and healthcare delivery.


  • Slide 8

Altogether, the hospital’s idea of applying new technology for teaching reveals that the healthcare industry is indeed expanding and improving. It is for this reason that the school has upgraded the practice rooms, incorporated the use of EHRs, and ensured that the training can also be done on mobile devices to prepare the nursing students and staff nurses for their role in today’s nursing practice. These projects indicates the spirit of continuous improvement in healthcare education and ensuring that healthcare professionals are well equipped to handle the challenges of the current healthcare environment.
