Teamwork, Collaboration and Informatics in Nursing The nursing field is caring, dependable, and effective. None of which could be accomplished without teamwork, collaboration and informatics. I believe these concepts are fundamental in the nursing profession. Nurses must work with other healthcare staff, the patients and their families to provide patient-centered and quality care. The use of informatics enhance both the quality of care the clients receive and the teamwork and collaboration aspect of nursing. No one nurse can do it all on their own. Nursing requires the use of teamwork and new technology.
Dr. Murray’s article states that nursing informatics is the combination of sciences; computer, information and nursing which helps to “manage and process nursing data, information and knowledge to support the practice of nursing and the delivery of care” (Murray, 2010, p. 3). Collecting information while
Benefits of EMR * Paper records can be reduced or completely eliminated. * Less time consuming. * Enhances efficiency. * Reduces errors in documentation, as the process of entering information is streamlined. * Improves and speeds up work flow. * Makes sharing of information across hospitals and healthcare providers possible. * Healthcare professionals have access to all pertinent health related information. * * Reduction of medication errors- Barcode medication administration safeguards against wrong pt/wrong med/wrong dose errors and alerts to potential medication interactions (Goth, 2006).
Task 724.4.2-01-05 Discuss an original presentation to introduce the new EMR system to staff on you unit. In your Presentation:
In this discussion board post, I will compare and contrast informatics and clinical informatics. Then I will give two examples of clinical informatics found in my organization that has been found to improve patient care. I will also give two examples of how my nurse manager can utilize data management in order to improve patient care. Lastly, I will discuss why President Bush mandated that all health records be in electronic form by the year 2014.
The objective of this synthesis paper is to present my readers what I have achieved during my graduate program at American Sentinel University (ASU). It assimilates all my course work, clinical experience, and nursing practice during this time, which presents a complete picture of how I accomplished my Master of
NURS 6051-N26 Transforming Nursing and Healthcare through Information Technology Electronic Health Records When I became a nurse, the hospital I work for was still using paper charts. Within a few years of being at the hospital, there was a gradual incorporation of electronic health record (EHR) charting. Now looking back there have been many great positives to the implementation to EHR including past medical history, allergies, insurance and other information.
Nurse Informatics Position Description Many job titles or description can be associated with the position of an informatics nurse specialist (INS). According to Sweeney (2010), there is no single job description for an individual with a graduate level of education in the informatics field. Furthermore, the author stated that
Information Technology allows health care providers to collect, store, retrieve and transfer information electronically. More specific discussion of IT in health care is challenging due to lack of specific definitions, the volume of applications and a rapid pace of change in technology. Information technology has the potential to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of health care. The health care system generally uses less IT than other industries. IT increases the ability of physicians, nurses, clinical technicians, and others to readily access and use the right information about their patients to Improve care. Studies have shown that better technologies leads to better care.
Week 3 Translating Theories in Practice DB 6401-3 Nurses are moving from a traditional method of performing task into the technological era. As informatics nurses recognize the need to move from the traditional to a progressive approach. There are many theorist that propose change; however, Kurt Lewin the father of psychology, introduces the theory concepts, emphasizes that the group differ from the sum of its parts. The change theory presents the three-stage model of change. The Lewins model (2011) consist of the unfreezing-change-refreeze theory. The purpose of this discussion is to examine the theories and conceptual frameworks applicable to nursing informatics, view and summarize the video, and Evaluate Applications of Theories or Conceptual Frameworks to Nursing Informatics Initiative.
It is critical that nurses can demonstrate competency. There are several diverse ways to define competency. According to McGonigle (4th edition), “nursing-informatics competency was defined as adequate knowledge, skills, and ability to perform specific informatics tasks” pg. 137. The TIGER assessment team developed a set of competencies that

Although many nursing informatics developed their careers through on the job training or continuing education because of the growing complexity of the field formal education and certification are requirement for now and the future informaticist.
Hi Arely, I liked the way you said that nursing informatics “combines different kinds of knowledge to raise performance standards that nurses must go by when caring for patients.” As future nurses to be, it is important for us to develop this skills to provide our patients with quality care as they deal with the stressfulness of having health problems.
