Technology is rapidly changing the way nurses deliver patient care. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 encourages health care providers to implement electronic health records for meaningful use of patient information. This development has opened the door to many technologies that use this information to streamline patient care. This article explores current and new technologies that nurses will be working with either now or in the near future. Nursing technology includes an array of devices, systems, and software designed to reduce the number of time nurses must spend on tasks such as tracking down equipment, locating and collaborating with other staff members and updating patient charts. The newer technological advances include real-time locating systems (RTLS). These systems typically use radiofrequency identification tags, ultrasound, or infrared technology to tag and track medical equipment.
