An easy-to-use tool for keeping up with information on the Web.

Editor's note: Welcome to AJN's new technology column. Sometimes to our detriment, nurses haven't always been the fastest and most willing members of the health care community to adopt and regularly use technology. Even so, many of us are already using handheld computers at the bedside, computerized charting, and eMARs (electronic medication administration records)—or we will be soon. This column aims to keep AJN readers up to date on the uses of technology and social media in health care; new columns will appear periodically.
