Hello everyone, I’m Sophia  and I’d like to welcome you to my presentation. Today, the topic I am going to represent is the stakeholder meeting that is required for integrating telehealth technology into the electronic health records (EHRs) at Vila Hospital.

Slide 2:

 Recent improvements in healthcare technology have made it an integral component of medical procedures. Telehealth, which enables remote patient consultations via video conferencing, is a prime example. There are many opportunities for Vila Hospital’s electronic health records (EHR) system to include telehealth technologies. All important parties, including the IT team, clinical and administrative personnel, and patients, must be involved in resolving any significant areas of doubt to guarantee a seamless rollout. Research has indicated that the effective integration of telehealth can enhance patient outcomes in managing chronic illnesses by as much as 30%. Furthermore, it can increase organizational performance by improving efficiency (Chimfwembe et al., 2024).

  To support your statements, don’t forget to replace them with citations from reliable sources. Vila Hospital may assess the technology’s impact using a range of metrics, including cost analysis, monitoring operational efficiency, tracking clinical results, and patient satisfaction surveys. uses a statistic to calculate the possible benefit. Patients’ experiences with telehealth consultations, including their convenience, usability, and general level of satisfaction, may be evaluated using surveys. Research has demonstrated that telehealth may result in high patient satisfaction ratings; upon adoption, one research reported a 90% satisfaction rate. Patient health can be improved by monitoring clinical indicators related to certain diseases that are handled through telehealth.

For instance, a telehealth service for patients with chronic heart failure may monitor drug adherence or readmission rates. Data on healthcare use may be analyzed to identify possible telehealth cost reductions. This may include fewer trips to the ER, fewer hospital admissions, and cheaper patient transportation. According to studies, telehealth can result in considerable cost savings; one research found that overall healthcare costs decreased by 15%. Workflow monitoring can reveal places where telehealth boosts productivity. This might entail setting up appointments more quickly, spending less time on administrative duties, and fostering better patient-provider communication. Vila Hospital can discover opportunities for additional improvement and obtain insightful knowledge about the efficacy of telehealth integration by monitoring these metrics (Kingsford et al., 2024).

 

Identifying Key Stakeholders for Technology Acquisition Meetings

Slide 3: 

For Vila Hospital to effectively incorporate telehealth technology into its electronic health records (EHRs), a wide range of stakeholders must be included. Strong stakeholder participation during the implementation phase has been demonstrated in studies to boost the chance of successful telehealth uptake by 50% [source needed]. This includes people and organizations that the new technology will affect or that have a stake in it. Their participation guarantees a balanced viewpoint, encourages teamwork, and aids in the early detection of any problems.

The cornerstone of preventing mother-to-child HIV transmission is maternal antiretroviral medication including viral suppression before conception, during pregnancy, and nursing, in addition to infant postnatal prophylaxis. Nevertheless, in 2020, an estimated 150,000 children were predicted to have contracted HIV despite these measures, with half of these infections happening during nursing. To tackle this persistent issue, a stakeholder gathering examined the present condition worldwide. Half of illnesses developed during nursing: This emphasizes the necessity of better tactics during this crucial time.

The technical parts of the integration process, such as configuring and tailoring the EHRs to work with the telehealth technologies, will fall within their purview. Interoperability problems across various EHR systems are a significant obstacle to successful telehealth integration, hence this can be a challenging endeavor [source needed].

The World Health Organization’s recommendations have been embraced worldwide but with modifications for certain situations. While some programs with limited rates of healthcare access give prolonged daily nevirapine prophylaxis, others offer a wider regimen to all exposed infants. Simplifying the risk-stratification process might help high-performing programs identify high-risk infants who can get more focused treatments. Programs that perform below par may find it difficult to adopt intricate procedures and might benefit from a more straightforward, non-risk-stratified approach. focused outbreaks Babies born in areas where certain groups are heavily impacted by concentrated epidemics ought to be regarded as high-risk.

Technological improvements that enhance mothers’ adherence and retention throughout pregnancy and lactation might prove advantageous for contemporary technological settings. Treatment is disrupted when medicine is unavailable. Implementation may be hampered by the scarcity of baby-appropriate drugs. Inadequate recordkeeping and poor drug adherence can undermine efficacy. An increased risk of transmission may result from inconsistent breastfeeding patterns. It’s critical to maintain moms’ involvement in nursing care throughout the process. PNP tactics may be tailored to the specifics of each program to enhance access, adherence, and eventually the health outcomes of babies exposed to HIV (Md Galal Uddin et al., 2024).
