Week 3 Discussion

Initial Post

Informatics in nursing is an imperative part of our health care system and while they appear to operate behind the scenes, they touch nearly every area of our daily lives. In nursing, as in health care in general, information technology is used to solve day-to-day problems, greatly changing the way nurses operate in patient care (2020a). Having skills in both nursing and technology allows a nurse informaticist to fill the gap connecting clinical staff and technical advancement. This allows staff to observe and provide feedback concerning new technology (2020b).

continued emergence of new technologies might have on professional interactions.

My organization’s “Event Note” is one of the ways I communicate with nursing informaticists. Like an incident report, this does not always have to be in connection with a fall or other harm. When something good or bad happens to a patient, our system uses this form of paperwork to keep track of it. Any user who accesses that particular chart will be alerted via this technique when an Event Note is available for them to view.

A more user-friendly and descriptive manner to record an incident might be developed instead of only having a free-text area. When it comes to writing a detailed narrative of an event, not everyone is the same. Messages that omit or omit crucial facts are misunderstood (2020c; ) Interaction amongst Nurse Informaticists in NURS 6051 One method to develop and improve the documentation of Event Notes, in my opinion, is to alter the way the electronic system invites you to capture an event. There may be an option to click on specific categories, indications and symptoms, therapies delivered and outcomes instead of just providing a free-text box. In my opinion, this is significantly less confusing to others when they read the Event Note about the patient and the events that had place.

Discussion: Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists NURS 6051

The specialty of nursing informatics will only continue to develop and move forward. Advances in the future of nursing informatics would concentrate on patient and clinical data, enhanced processes at health care facilities, streamlined data collection, monitoring and analysis, and access to patient information in real time at any moment, anywhere (n.d). Nursing informatics positively impacts the quality of care

regarding a patient. Increasing connectivity will only ameliorate knowledge sharing and collaboration between different hospitals, physicians, and patients on a worldwide scale. With an importance on patient care and the current prompt growth of technology, Nursing Informaticists are more important than ever before.

Discussion: Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists and Other Specialists

Nature is full of examples of specialization and collaboration. Nature’s complex organizational structures are exemplified by ant colonies and bee hives. Each thrives because its members specialize in specific tasks, divide labor, and work together to ensure the food, safety, and general well-being of the colony or hive.

Of course, humans fare well in this regard as well. Healthcare is an excellent example, as demonstrated by Discussion: Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists NURS 6051. Nurse informaticists collaborate with specialists on a regular basis as specialists in data collection, access, and application to ensure that appropriate data is available to make decisions and take actions to ensure the general well-being of patients.

You will reflect on your own observations and/or experiences with informaticist collaboration in this Discussion: Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists NURS 6051 Discussion. You will also make recommendations for how to improve these collaborative experiences.

Week 3 Discussion

RE: Discussion – Week 3

At my current organization, nurse informaticist helps build our electronic medical records. They also help create our documentation system, which is currently Meditech. However, this summer, we are switching over to Epic. Right now, the nurses that work in IT are busy building the system for every department in the hospital from clinics, inpatient, outpatient, respiratory, phlebotomy, etc.

At the present day using Ameritech, nurse informaticist is available to help with problems encountered with the system. Our organization is a smaller hospital, so I feel that the communication between nurse informaticists and providers is appropriate. It is as simple as making a phone call, and they are there to help. They also help providers with data and order entry. Right now, many nurses I work with believe that Ameritech is more “physician” focused and not “nurse” focused. The system is not user-friendly. To make this system more accessible, I think when Meditech has significant updates, nurses in the departments should have a say in how the system is built and more education. According to the American Nurses Association (2018), ample training and guidance need to be available for that particular setting or department.

I also feel that we do so much charting; time is taken away from the patient. Mcgonigle and Mastrain (2018) believe that nurses feel that the caring presence is taken away due to the time it takes to chart. With Epic coming to our organization, rumor has it that the system is nurse friendly and will not take as much time to document, so therefore, more time is spent with patients.

We, as nurses, are essential communicators to providers about what is going on with the patient and their story as described by Glassman (2017). (2017). It is important to partner and communicates with the builders of Meditech and such systems to help improve the flow of the patient’s story.

I believe continued emergence with new technologies into the healthcare system will help communication between healthcare providers. I have been employed with Hays Medical Center for almost ten years and seen many technology changes from paper to electronic charting, cameras in the room to monitor falls, and now cell phones being used by employees to reach each other.

RE: Discussion – Week 3

Hi D…,

I agree with you that nurses should have a say in how the electronic health system is designed because we as nurses document these systems so much. It should be simple to use for all healthcare professionals who care for patients, not just doctors. “EHR documentation design must achieve a balance that ensures the capture of nursing’s impact on safety, quality, highly reliable care, patient engagement, and satisfaction” (O’Brien, Weaver, Settergren, and Ivory, 2015). Because nurses are the ones who provide direct care to patients, we are constantly documenting. As a result, our contributions should have an impact on the development of electronic health records. Healthcare professionals, particularly nurses and physicians, as well as HIT members, must collaborate to create an electronic system that is functional for healthcare professionals. “Health information technology (HIT) and electronic nursing care documentation have a direct impact on patient safety.” Effective collaboration between nurses and HIT staff is required to optimize patient safety through EHR use” (Lavin, Harper, and Barr, 2015).

I used Meditech at the hospital where I interned during my final semester of undergrad. I wasn’t a fan of Meditech, and I agree that it wasn’t “nursing friendly.” Epic has been in use at my hospital for less than three years. I like Epic, but I believe that this electronic health system requires a lot of documentation. In my opinion, it is very detail oriented. Because nurses are constantly documenting, one feature designed specifically for them is the ‘Required Shift Documentation’ tab. There is a link to a document on pain, fall risk, patient education, care plan note, safety, and assessment under this tab. These are the details that nurses must record for each patient on each shift. In Epic, there are numerous places to document the same thing; therefore, with this feature, I can simply click on the required shift documentation tab and document on these topics rather than searching for all of these separate topics throughout Epic, which can take a few minutes. It makes documentation just a tad easier.
