To mark International Nurses Day, Microsoft has started a new nursing blog as the software giant looks to expand into the healthcare sector.
The aim of the blog is to get the views of nurses, who Microsoft says have “the closest view of how the health sector is changing”.
In a blog post, Jesse Stanchak, Microsoft, said: “Today we pay our respects to those who bravely tackle some of the most demanding tasks in healthcare. Today we remember those who embody the NHS’ 6Cs – care, compassion, courage, communication, commitment and competence — like no one else. Today we say ‘thank’ you to all nurses. But we also want to ask you for one more thing: Your voice”.
Stanchak further explains, “Microsoft is launching a new blog specifically about nursing issues and we’d love for you to be a part of it. If you’re a nurse with a story to tell or a perspective to share around how technology is helping to improve patient care, we want to hear it. Together we can shed a little light on one of the most important untold stories in all of healthcare: Yours”.
