NURSING INFORMATICS 4
Asan RN in healthcare informatics, the responsibility involvespreparing learners for senior placements in informatics role. This isidentified in any patient care facility that is large enough toadminister bulky information or data sets (McGonigle& Mastrian, 2015).For example, the CNIO (Chief Officer), the VP(vice president) of clinical informatics, and CCIO (chief clinicalinformation officer), among other similar responsibilities arebecoming major responsibilities in managed care organizations,integrated health systems, and hospitals throughout the nation(GonÃ§alveset al., 2012).
Nurseseducated in the informatics field at the RN level are capable ofaddressing several healthcare reform initiatives requiring patientcare agencies to coordinate healthcare provision across the continuumin a better way (McGonigle& Mastrian, 2015).This relates to better documentation and improvement of patientattention in the delivery of care.
Asregards the implementation of medical care, IT records incentives,and several healthcare facilities are noted to illustrate meaningfulapplication of Evidence Based Practice in EHR (HIMSS,2016). Thisis aimed at attaining the qualification for incentives provided viahealthcare provision’s EHR Incentives. Evidence Based NursingInformation has proven to be at the forefront in aiding organizationsmeet several meaningful healthcare needs (HealthcareInformation and Management Systems Society, 2017).
Personally,I believe that leaders have not only helped insupplying the needs for coordination of Information Technologyefforts, but also in offering ancillary services in the entirewheelhouse. I have seen, for instance, that more healthcarefacilities gave adopted electronic health record systems that need tocollaborate with several nursing departments, including laboratoriesand pharmacies.
Inconclusion, nursing informatics leaders and CNIOs with adequateexperience in evidence-based practice are able to comprehend thenuances of national, state, and local policies to assess clinicalinformation systems. This will help in enhancing healthcare policydevelopments. The identified parties need to be prepared to betterintegrate the information requirements for healthcare facilities,which may encompass choosing and implementing IT products.
