Question: What are you most excited about right now?

Michelle Charles: As a chief nurse informatics officer, I am most excited about digital health. We stood up a new virtual care department that includes virtual nursing. We have the opportunity to utilize digital health as a major engine to innovate the nursing profession models of care. Virtual care nursing can decrease nurse burnout, address the experience-to-complexity gap in nursing and increase patient satisfaction through engagement in discharge planning.
