Giving Nebraska's Health Care the Digital Treatment
LINCOLN, Neb. -- The adoption of new technologies is changing health care in Nebraska. NET News will examine the situation in a series of in-depth reports on NET Radio, "Giving Nebraska's Health Care the Digital Treatment," airing Tuesday, Sept. 10 through Friday, Sept. 13 at 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT.
In the series, NET News reporter/producer Hilary Stohs-Krause looks at the major players in the digital conversion of healthcare, examining how the switchover from paper to electronic records benefits - and challenges - patients and providers, and how rural clinics and hospitals are adapting. Reports also will explore questions about changes in the patient-doctor dynamic, such as if health care will become less personal and if patients will be expected to shoulder more of their own care. Finally, the reports will look at how future healthcare workers are being educated to use new technology, and what impact all of this will have on Nebraskans’ health.
