Assignment 3:  Scholarly Paper – Telecommunication Technology and the Delivery of Health Services


 (30 points)








In healthcare today, many patients/clients are increasing using telehealth applications for monitoring their health status.  At the same time, in clinics and hospitals, primary care providers (PCPs) including advanced practice nurses are being challenged by patient/client questions concerning healthcare-related information and practices reported on the Internet.  This assignment relates to telehealth care, the impacts of telehealth on the nursing role, and the use of standards to evaluate and recommend credible websites to patients.








Assignment Criteria/Directions:   








In this paper, students will examine telehealth, discuss one specific emerging telehealth tool, and identify implications of how telehealth impacts emerging telehealth nursing roles.  Students will also use standard criteria to identify credible websites for a selected telehealth population and design a teaching plan to empower this population to evaluate health information on the Web.




Include the following in the scholarly paper as the work is composed and organized:




  1. Telehealth Care and Telenursing




  • Discuss the clinical and non-clinical uses of this technology and provide examples
  • Identify the required safety and security provisions/standards for telehealth applications:

    • Legal (including “Meaningful Use” according to American Recovery and Reinvestment Act [ARRA])
    • Regulatory (credentialing and certification)
  • Generate a table of the major benefits and current challenges to adoption of telehealth applications
  • Analyze how telehealth affects patients’ empowerment and patients’ engagement in their own health
  • As a master’s prepared nurse in an advanced practice role, discuss how you would evaluate the quality and effectiveness of a telehealth tool

  • Analyze the role of the telenurse in using and educating the patient about this specific telehealth tool




      • What training would be needed
      • What equipment would be used  
      • How would you assess the patient and family’s response to this telehealth tool?


Evaluating Health-Related Websites for Populations


For the preferred patient population, identify two credible health-related web sites that would be useful to ensuring this population’s effective health status






  • Explain why (what specific aspects of the website) you would recommend these websites to this population. 
    • What website evaluation criteria did you use?
    • Assess and report the reading level of information presented in each website
  •  Present a teaching plan to educate these patients about how to select a reputable and credible health website to manage their health
