Technologies Supporting Applied Practice and Optimal Patient Outcomes

The integration of information technology in healthcare has become increasingly vital (Gecomo et al., 2020). Computer utilization has surged across various facets of patient care. Telemedicine, a novel approach in medical and nursing practice, enables the provision of healthcare services remotely, without necessitating an in-person visit (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2017). By leveraging computers, the internet, and wireless communication, telemedicine facilitates healthcare delivery from a distance. Despite encountering challenges such as inadequate internet connectivity and limited universal access to technology (Ftouni et al., 2022), the implementation of telemedicine has proven effective in enhancing health outcomes. This paper examines peer-reviewed research that elucidates the efficacy, outcomes, limitations, and insights gained from the adoption of this technology.
