Week 3

NR 361 Week 3 DQ 1 Opportunities for Improvement with Usability and Interoperability

Usability and interoperability are major issues to consider in the development of healthcare information systems (HIS). How does your organization address these issues? Does the transfer of information occur smoothly, or do you need to re-enter data from one application to the next—such as patient information from the emergency room that does not transfer—along with the patient who is admitted to the critical care unit? Or what happens when the patient is discharged and the home care nurses have to start from scratch as they prepare the patient’s plan of care?

 

NR 361 Week 3 DQ 2 Library Search for Telenursing Resources

This week’s lesson points out key concepts in searching the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed/MEDLINE database, the Chamberlain Library’s EBSCO/CINAHL database, and Google Scholar. This week’s lesson directs you to links and resources on the basics of searching these three information sources. The tutorials are very helpful. You are strongly urged to view them prior to posting.

Locate one article in each of the data sources to prepare your scholarly paper due during Week 4’s Telenursing: The Future Is Now. Briefly summarize each article in your post.

Meaningful Use is part of the EHR requirements targeted for completion in 2014. Meaningful Use was created in order to capture the right data to improve patient outcomes.  

With this in mind, how can you as a nurse ensure that Meaningful Use is being implemented into the EHR?  If you were the nurse manager, how would you implement this documentation and ensure buy-in by your staff?

NR 361 Week 7 DQ 2 Safe Nursing Care Is There an App for That

Andrea was working in the cardiac catheterization lab when a young woman undergoing a cardiac ablation started to have small seizures. The nurse noticed these symptoms and asked the physician to look at the patient. The physician asked Andrea to get his smart phone and film the seizures. This video message was sent to a neurologist, and he could tell from the video the part of the brain from which the seizures were emanating. This is one example of using technology. Does this count as safe care? Is there an app for that?

If you could develop an app to enhance safe nursing care, what would it be like?
