I’m trying to study for my Health & Medical course and I need some help to understand this question.
It may come as no surprise that advances in technology have had a dramatic impact on healthcare delivery. Advances in health information technology, such as patient portals; electronic health records (EHRs) or electronic medical records (EMRs); and real-time coordination of patient care, etc., all have greatly contributed to enhancements in healthcare delivery. However, they too presented several challenges to healthcare administration leaders and clinical staff in how to best orient and implement such technology to enhance healthcare delivery.
One such advancement in healthcare technology concerns the use of telemedicine to provide patient care and treatment. While delivery of patient care is usually a direct transaction, interfacing with patients and physicians virtually, or at a distance, could greatly enhance how healthcare services are delivered for certain situations, such as disaster events or in rural locales.
For this Discussion, review the resources for this week. Reflect on the Torabi et al. (2016) article in the resources for this week, and consider the distributions the authors selected for the given simulation.
Post a description of the distributions selected by the authors in the Torabi et al. (2016) article, and then explain whether the distributions selected are appropriate for practice, and why. Explain what was done well in the study, as well as areas of weakness for the considerations described by the authors. Be specific, and provide examples.
