The Impact of Nursing Informatics on Patient Outcomes and Patient Care Efficiencies.

In the Discussion for this module, you considered the interaction of nurse informaticists with other specialists to ensure successful care. How is that success determined?

Patient outcomes and the fulfillment of care goals is one of the major ways that healthcare success is measured. Measuring patient outcomes results in the generation of data that can be used to improve results. Nursing informatics can have a significant part in this process and can help to improve outcomes by improving processes, identifying at-risk patients, and enhancing efficiency.

To Prepare:

  • Review      the concepts of technology application as presented in the Resources.
  • Reflect      on how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence may help      fortify nursing informatics as a specialty by leading to increased impact      on patient outcomes or patient care efficiencies.

The Assignment: (4-5 pages)

In a 4- to 5-page project proposal written to the leadership of your healthcare organization, propose a nursing informatics project for your organization that you advocate to improve patient outcomes or patient-care efficiency. Your project proposal should include the following:

  • Describe the project you propose.
  • Identify  the stakeholders impacted by this project.
  • Explain  the patient outcome(s) or patient-care efficiencies this project is aimed   at improving and explain how this improvement would occur. Be specific and      provide examples.
  • Identify   the technologies required to implement this project and explain why.
  • Identify   the project team (by roles) and explain how you would incorporate the      nurse informaticist in the project team.
