There are currently four million nurses in the U.S. (ANA, 2018). There are four times as many nurses as physicians and eight times as many nurses as pharmacists. Yet often we find that physicians or pharmacists are the “go to” when the tech industry needs input on new products.
Each year at the annual HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) conference, new trends emerge as the hottest topics of the year, leading to standing-room-only panel sessions focused on particular technology breakthroughs or policy pronouncements from regulators.
Across the health care continuum, the delivery of care is undergoing dramatic changes, everything from where we deliver care to how we provide care. Emerging innovations and technologies are being positioned to disrupt not only healthcare, but also nursing practice.
When Bonnie Clipper, DNP, RN, asks a room full of nurses if they consider themselves to be innovators, only a few people raise their hands. When she asks nurses if they’ve ever had to do a workaround or “MacGyvered” something to take care of a patient, many more hands go up.
ANA is the premier organization representing the interests of the nation’s 4 million registered nurses. In 2017, the organization created a new executive role of Vice President of Innovation – and selected Dr. Bonnie Clipper, DNP, RN, MA, MBA, CENP, FACHE, to lead the charge.
The use of service robots is a fairly new and dynamic aspect of the care environment. Of the various types of robots, service robots are poised to make considerable impact in the patient care environment by assisting the care team.

From virtual reality for nursing education to assistive robotics, facial recognition and AI, we see a growing demand for new skills and abilities. But how to balance automated processes and human care?
AI (Artificial Intelligence) and technology are taking over healthcare at warp speeds. Will Nurses be hearing the phrases “You’re terminated get the choppa?” Will Robots be replacing them at the bedside anytime soon?
Dr. Bonnie Clipper brings thought leadership, nursing, innovation, and strategic partnership to the platform to enable patients and clinicians to experience care the way it was meant to be, person to person.
As long as there have been nurses, there have been nurses who innovate! Often that entails “work-arounds” of systems and policies that hamstring the nurse and make giving good care to the patient more difficult.
What Artificial Intelligence means, a variety of examples of how AI is currently being integrated into medical devices, and what the impact of AI will be on nursing.
Greg and Bonnie talk about the evolving role of nurses in the health system & how important it is to equip them to participate in healthcare design & innovation.
Input from nurses is often overlooked or ignored in the innovation process. How is leaving nurses out of the equation doing a disservice to the whole industry?
