D1. HIS Effect on Nursing Process slide 5
A discussion of how the HIS impacts the practice of nursing is thoughtfully shared, such as
improving workflow and documentation. The discussion does not identify the formal nursing
process or describe how the HIS impacts any of the steps of the formal nursing process.
E1. Evaluation of Technologies slide 10
SmartPhones are said to be utilized to send brief instant messages to providers and smart
TVs to provide patient education. The technologies are not clearly defined or differentiated
for their use within the secure healthcare environment. Please provide further details
describing the technologies as utilized in healthcare. Consider if the phone itself is the
technology being presented and what makes a smart TV smart.
E2. Discussion of Technologies slide 11
Data such as the benefit of the technology and the efficacy of educational steps are credibly
named. The discussion does not clearly describe how the technologies support the use of
nursing informatics and further detail is needed to describe the data that is generated.
Management & The
Application of Technology
• Health Information systems are designed to help manage data in the healthcare setup.
• These systems can manage, collect, transmit, and store the electronic health records of a patient
(Rouleau, Gagnon & Côté, 2015)
• Health information systems can be used to improve quality care and patient outcomes
Examples of health information systems include Electronic Health Records, Master Patient Index, and
patient portals (Rouleau, Gagnon & Côté, 2015).
• The systems also help manage costs and create efficiencies
• Patient-centered care includes involving, informing, and listening to patients who need care
• Information is very important in patient-centered care
• Health information systems can be used to share information and coordinate care
• Providers and patients can use communication tools to facilitate interaction when making clinical
decisions (Snyder et al., 2011).
• Patients can use the systems to inform their physician with critical information about them
• In turn, physicians can use this information to tailor their approach towards the care they give these
ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS AND QUALITY CARE
• Information that could not be presented through paper charts is now presented in accessible formats
• EHR make access to treatment alert or goals possible
• Health professionals are able to quickly access information on the best approach in handling different
cases (Manca, 2015).
• Reduction in costs and duplication is made possible
• Outcomes of diseases can be improved
HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEMS AFFECT THE
• Successful implementation positively affects the nursing process by improving workflows
• Nurses are able to see more patients thanks to a well-designed system
• An improvement in the quality of nursing care due to availability of nursing documentation
• The move to electronic documentation provides nurses with easier and faster information flow (e.g.
electronic charting) (Cassano, 2014)
• Nurses are able to engage better with patients through personal records and patient portals
HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEM AND SAFETY
• Errors such as giving the wrong medicine cause great safety concerns
• Having values which are safety conscious can prevent such errors from happening
• HIS can help prevent adverse events and medication errors
• Bedside monitoring systems can be used to enhance safety by providing effective intervention and
• BCMAs can help prevent human error while distributing and prescribing medication (Aziz, 2016).
HUMAN FACTORS LEAD TO ERRORS, NEAR MISSES,
AND ADVERSE EVENTS
• Errors, near misses, and adverse events result from issues in human factors
• A worker can be unfamiliar with a certain task and end up misperceiving the situation
• The health provider might be short of time and thus rush through treating the patient
• Factors such as stress, fatigue, and hunger could lead to underperformance
• Inexperience with using the health information technology (especially older nurses) (Wilson, Fabri &
CLINICAL DECISION SUPPORT (CDS) OF THE
ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD (EHR)
• The CDS of the EHR directs, reminds, or alerts providers on clinical guidelines
• It provides biomedical knowledge and person-specific information to staff, patients and clinicians
• CDS uses relevant and evidence-based information to eliminate patient inconvenience, improve
efficiency, and reduce costs (Romano & Stafford, 2011).
• Order sets for treatment of specific ailments are a good example of such information
CDS works with EHRs to provide reminders and prompts to assist care providers and patients
implement and adhere to evidence-based clinical guidelines (Romano & Stafford, 2011).
COMPLIANCE WITH HIPAA SECURITY AND PRIVACY RULES
IN HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEMS
• Compliance with HIPAA security and privacy rules is necessary for HIS
• H.I.S. are required to have certain safeguards to protect patient information
• The safeguards are physical, technical, and administrative controls
• These set of laws require patients to be kept aware of any breaches in security
• Complying with HIPAA rules ensures measures such as encryption and passwords are adhered to, to
ensure that the availability of patient data is controlled (Wu, Ahn & Hu, 2012)
HIPAA rules require providers to access only the information required in their daily tasks
• Encryption and passwords help keep out individuals who have no business accessing patient data (Wu,
Ahn & Hu, 2012)
EMERGING AND CURRENT HEALTHCARE
• Smartphones are useful tools in the healthcare industry
• Patients are able to send short instant messages to their caregiver about their condition without having
to interact face to face
• When patients are allowed to do so, medication is delivered to them quicker and this helps alleviate
any discomfort they may experience (Al Thomairy et al., 2015).
• Smartphones offer the benefit of quick delivery of care which leads to better management of pain
• Nursing informatics uses the data generated from patient smartphone use to prove the benefits of
allowing the use of this technology in care delivery
EMERGING AND CURRENT HEALTHCARE
• Smart TVs are another example of emerging technologies in healthcare
• Medication and discharge information are displayed on these devices on a loop from the patients to
• This approach helps provide patient education regarding prescriptions and medication intake
• An increase in patient knowledge and engagement regarding discharge instructions is seen through the
• An engaged and well informed patient is more likely to be cooperative
• The data generated supports nursing informatics on steps which are effective in patient education and
thus leads to an improvement in care
• Health information systems enhance the quality of patient care
• They handle a lot of patient information, so securing the systems is crucial
• When using such systems, human error can lead to loss of data or even adverse outcomes such as
• It is crucial for healthcare professionals to be educated on how to use such systems
• Implementing health information systems is beneficial and improves quality of care
