Today marks the start of Nurses Week so here at Intel we want to celebrate, with you, what we consider to be the real superheroes of healthcare by saying #ThankYouNurses. Throughout the next seven days we’ll be bringing you some fantastic blogs which demonstrate our appreciation for nurses while highlighting how technology is helping to deliver best-ever patient care.
I want you to help us to say thank you to nurses across the world by tweeting your appreciation using the hashtag #ThankYouNurses throughout the week. If you have received some fantastic care from a nurse or want to highlight the work of a great colleague I’d love to help you say thanks by sharing your stories on Twitter – so tag a nurse, @intelhealth and say #ThankYouNurses with us.
As a nurse practitioner I’ve seen up close how technology is truly revolutionising nursing through enhanced mobility, whether that be having access to the latest medical records when visiting a patient at home or helping a patient to understand their condition better by displaying an injury on a tablet at the bedside in a hospital.
We are also working with Microsoft in Health to highlight all that nurses do at www.microsoft.com/nurses so please check out some of the great nursing stories there too. Nurses Week ends on a high with International Nurses Day on May 12th so let’s keep the conversation going throughout the week.
I very much look forward to sharing our collective appreciation for nurses with you.
