    ContextContinued
    rapid changes in information technology reflect significant progress in
    health care delivery and the practice of nursing. The use of patient
    monitoring devices, robotics, electronic medical records, data
    management resources, and ready access to current science are a few
    examples of how technology is used in providing care to patients across
    multiple settings.SHOW LESSHow
    technology will continue to interface with nursing care, research, and
    future practice is significant to advancing the profession and
    maintaining high quality of care standards and delivery.The following
    search terms relate to nursing informatics and evidence-based practice.
    Keeping an eye on them will help the nurse informatics practitioner stay
    up to date about current trends and applications of technology:

    • Assessment InstructionsWrite an essay in which you analyze an information system for its effectiveness in improving patient care.PreparationSelect an example of a current information system used in the delivery of patient care. Note:
      Ideally, select a system from your workplace to examine. If you are not
      currently working, select a system from an organization close to where
      you live. This technology should be used for data management designed to
      improve patient care.Familiarize yourself with the technology. Do some
      personal research to gain a deeper understanding about the technology.
      Visit the Web site of the company who markets the technology to
      familiarize with how the company positions the technology in the market.
      Read articles online and in the library related to your chosen system.
      Remember to take notes to keep track of what you discover. Examine the
      following aspects of the technology:
      1. How is the information system designed to contribute to safety and quality in the care of patients?
      2. What types of data are tracked, monitored, stored, and trended in the system?
      3. How well does it accomplish what it is designed to do in your chosen real-world setting?
      4. How
        is this information system used to support research? If it is not
        currently being used to support research, how could it be used in the
        future?
      5. What types of opportunities are available for nurses, in
        any scope of practice, that gives them the chance to participate in the
        design and testing of this system?
      6. How might the technology be enhanced so it better meets the needs of the professionals currently using the system?

      Compare
      what you learn with how your chosen technology is being used in the
      workplace. Think about your own workplace and consider speaking with
      other professionals who currently use the system.DirectionsWrite
      an essay in which you discuss what you have learned about how your
      chosen information system is used in the delivery of patient care and
      how it contributes (or does not contribute) to improved patient care.
      Include the following categories:

      • Describe your chosen information system and its intended role in improving patient care.
      • Explain why you chose to examine this particular system.
      • Capture
        in 1 or 2 sentences the main point of what you learned and your
        personal opinion of this system based on what you learned.
      • Support
        your main point with subpoints that include examples and supporting
        evidence that address each of the six points listed above under the
        Preparation heading. Be sure to cite expert opinions and evidence where
        appropriate.
      • Include a concluding statement. Offer ideas,
        concepts, or activities that nurses, in any scope of practice, might
        want to consider that could improve how they could use this system to
        improve patient care.

      Additional Requirements

      • Written communication: Ensure written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
      • APA formatting: Format resources and citations according to current APA style and formatting guidelines. Include the following:
        • Title page.
        • Running head (a short title that appears on every page).
        • Title on the first page of text.
        • Level 1 headings for paper sections.
        • In-text parenthetical citations and a reference list.
      • Number of resources: Cite a minimum of four peer-reviewed resources.
      • Length: Submit 3–5 typed, double-spaced pages.
      • Font and font size: Use Times New Roman, 12 point.
