Below is the scenario you will use to write your week 3 RUA paper We Can But Dare We? The purpose of this paper is to really examine how as healthcare providers, we look more and more to technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline operations, and lower costs. Sometimes, technology can be used in ways that have ethical, moral, and legal considerations too. You will be writing about the use of personal devices and social media and their use in healthcare.
