Discussion : Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists and Other Specialists

Unformatted Attachment Preview

Discussion: Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists and Other Specialists Nature offers many examples of specialization and collaboration. Ant colonies and bee hives are but two examples of nature’s sophisticated organizations. Each thrives because their members specialize by tasks, divide labor, and collaborate to ensure food, safety, and general well-being of the colony or hive. Of course, humans don’t fare too badly in this regard either. And healthcare is a great example. As specialists in the collection, access, and application of data, nurse informaticists collaborate with specialists on a regular basis to ensure that appropriate data is available to make decisions and take actions to ensure the general well-being of patients. In this Discussion, you will reflect on your own observations of and/or experiences with informaticist collaboration. You will also propose strategies for how these collaborative experiences might be improved. To Prepare: • Review the Resources and reflect on the evolution of nursing informatics from a science to a nursing specialty. • Consider your experiences with nurse Informaticists or technology specialists within your healthcare organization. By Day 3 of Week 3 Post a description of experiences or observations about how nurse informaticists and/or data or technology specialists interact with other professionals within your healthcare organization. Suggest at least one strategy on how these interactions might be improved. Be specific and provide examples. Then, explain the impact you believe the continued evolution of nursing informatics as a specialty and/or the continued emergence of new technologies might have on professional interactions.

Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists and Other Specialists
Nursing informaticists are professional who specify in handling diverse patient data and
collaborating that data with Health record systems. This branch of nursing practice faces an
uphill task in communicate with other professionals based on the complexity of both health care
and technology. Standardized Nursing Terminologies (SNTs) serve to reduce these complexities
(Macieria et.al., 2017). However, the evolution of the nursing profession is quite rapid citing
several lags in nursing practice. It therefore falls upon informaticists to manage data hence
maintain a smooth workflow throughout the nursing sector.
The interaction between nursing informatics and other professionals takes place solely
through recognized medical and technological terms that have been approved by the American
Nursing Association (ANA). ANA recently released a circular that approved the use of context
based nursing terminologies for communication in the health sector (ANA, 2018). The
