The role of nurses as healthcare goes digital
For nurses with a passion for technology, the time has never been better to explore non-traditional career opportunities. Early in her career, our guest for this episode, Molly McCarthy, did exactly that — stepping away from the beside to pursue her passion in medical device design and health technology. After stints at Philips and Natus, she landed at Microsoft, where she served as the Chief Nursing Officer for six years, and now leads a team that drives digital innovation for health provider and payor organizations.
In her conversation with Dr. Nurse Dan, Molly explores the ways that nurses can get involved as healthcare delivery becomes more and more digital, as well as how Microsoft is working to get more nurses involved in its design process for initiatives related to the vaccine roll out and virtual care.
