Technology is recognized as a key lever within the system of health care delivery. It has the unique capacity to either reduce or increase workload demand. Creating the appropriate balance and/or impact is a critical role for leadership. Understanding the role of the nurse executive in this work is essential.
Technology is integrated into the fabric of health care and will most likely become increasingly part of the core fiber. The American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) recognizes the significant role technology will play in our future. In support, AONE leadership has developed several tools to assist nurse leaders in incorporating technology into their work.
