Module 1 Discussion

DQ1 The focus of this discussion is to reflect on how the information technology revolution is changing the way nurses practice and live. Consider how concepts such as ethics, confidentiality, patient information, disease management, Internet, intranet, multimedia, social networking, telecommunications, disaster preparedness, security, and health information systems have influenced your work life and/or personal life. With these concepts in mind, discuss the implications of the information technology revolution.

 

DQ2 After reviewing the Nursing Informatics presentation for this module, analyze the need for Informatics Nurse Specialists in various healthcare settings. Then, prepare a justification for a salary budget increase to add one or more of these positions to any setting of your choice. Include information on the competencies, skills, and responsibilities of nurses in this role. Your request should convince decision-makers that there is a critical need for this position in nursing.

Module 2 Discussion

 

One of the responsibilities of nurse educators and leaders is to develop strategies to integrate information and computer technology into the nursing curriculum. Visit the Sentinel Health DataLabTM  and access the various data resources. Create a substantive Discussion Question or brief instructional activity that would be appropriate for a graduate level informatics course in the nursing curriculum.

 

Sentinel Health DataLabTM  can be accessed using the following information.

Module 3 Discussion

 

DQ1 As information management permeates nursing practice, educational curricula, and nursing science, the profession of nursing is being challenged to balance the need to provide cost-effective and efficient patient care. In its report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) (2010) emphasizes the importance of nurses being a part of the selection, implementation, and execution of technology solutions for patient care in the twenty-first century.  Discuss specific challenges and solutions for nurses when integrating technology into patient care.

 

DQ2 With the advent of Electronic Medical and Health Records, Clinical Decision Support Systems and Administrative Clinical Systems for Staffing, Portable and Wearable technologies, nursing are being exposed to a variety of human-technology interfaces.   Discuss specific challenges and solutions for nurses regarding portable and wearable technologies.

Module 4 Discussion

 

Nursing research doesn’t have to involve rigorous research methods that are expected when conducting discovery research.  There is a great deal of data available in the public domain that would be useful for identifying risk factors, determining baseline rates for cost comparisons, and analyzing the trends of diseases and conditions. Select one of the two databases listed below and review the information that is available. Report on what you learned and how this knowledge could be utilized by healthcare providers to improve health outcomes. The CDC website contains a database of the results of the National Hospital Discharge Survey which has been conducted every year since 1965. Provided is a description of the characteristics of patients discharged from acute care hospitals in the US. HCUPnet is a free, on-line query system based on data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP). The HCUP provides access to health statistics and information on hospital inpatient and emergency department utilization.

Module 5 Discussion

 

DQ1 Assessing the quality and safety of care has become increasingly important to providers; especially with the advent of evidence-based practice. To provide quality care and services, data must be collected to measure baseline, targets, and progress in meeting pre-defined outcomes. If the correct data are not collected, it is impossible to monitor quality performance and outcomes.  For your discussion this week, visit the AHRQ, QSEN, IHI and NDNQI sites listed in your Resources section and review these resources available to create a culture of safety and quality in healthcare organizations. Evaluate these resources and provide an example of how these resources are integrated into nursing practice at your organization. Discuss recommendations for integration of additional resources not being utilized.

 

DQ2 This week you will begin working on your Systems Development Life Cycle Gantt Chart that is due in Module 7.  The basic purpose of a Gantt Chart is to break down a large project into a series of smaller tasks in an organized and logical way. To help prepare you for developing your own SDLC Gantt chart, your discussion this week will center on the tasks that were needed for the Wellness Alliance SDLC project case study (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2018).

 

This discussion should take the form of a brainstorming session to identify the tasks, milestones, and timelines that were, or will be needed, for the Wellness Alliance SDLC. You are not limited to the tasks in the case study – please feel free to be as creative as needed. This discussion should help you with ideas for your SDLC Gantt chart assignment.

Module 6 Discussion

 

The HIMSS (2011) nursing informatics community has developed a position statement regarding nursing’s role in transforming healthcare through technology along with several presentations and resources on standards and terminology.  Access the following resource to review this statement to learn more about current efforts in standardizing nursing terminology for electronic health records. Then, discuss how you envision your future role regarding nursing informatics.  What knowledge, skills, and abilities will you need to meet the expectations of this role?

Module 7 Discussion

 

The SDLC requires a great deal of collaboration, consensus-seeking, and approvals from many levels. Reflect on the SDLC process in relation to the quality of the organizational decision making throughout the project.

Module 8 Discussion

 

DQ1 Administrative functions include nurse financial resources, payroll, patient acuity, risk management, coding and scheduling functions to name a few.  It is critical that nurse administrators become astute informaticists to ensure efficient and effective care for their staff and patients.  Imagine yourself in the role of a nurse manager who is responsible for 50 nursing staff.  What information management systems and tools would you need to be able to perform the duties of managing the administrative functions of your unit?

 

DQ2 The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators is an example of a database that collects nurse-sensitive indicators and patient outcomes at the same point in time.  This allows analysts and decision-makers to place the results in context.  In other words, did that patient fall occur when the staffing levels were low?  Review the information on the NDNQI site and provide a specific example and discussion of how you can apply these data to make decisions regarding administration and patient care.
