Transcript of Nursing Informatics

Nursing Informatics Introduction
Nellie Tamayo
I was introduced to EMR 2 years ago when the hospital started using EPIC. Prior to that, I have only used paper charting.


Informatics History
This sums up my feelings regarding IT
Enthusiastic
I have always been fascinated with the wealth of information on the internet.
I love to manipulate computers so I am the person my colleagues would go to when they can't figure out the computer or EPIC.
less time spent on paper charting; more time on patient care

Excited
on what the future holds on the development of nursing informatics (it would be nice if we can access all the patients medical records with a uniform data retrieval)
Hopeful
that more advancement in technology will take place which would further make healthcare delivery safer

I can perform basic troubleshooting in computer applications.
I am able to assess the accuracy of health information on the internet.
I always have a positive attitude and influence my coworkers' attitudes towards computer use in nursing practice.

Strengths
Competency Gaps
I lack experience in leadership roles.
I have limited experience in participating in the design, selection process, implementation, and evaluation of systems.
I have not had an opportunity to act as an advocate of system users including patients or clients.
Goal 1
Provide up to date and current information in providing safe and high quality patient care
Be skilled in searching for reliable RCT to look for current EBP in nursing practice.
Disseminate findings to manager and colleagues.
Participate in decision-making and evaluation of current practices by volunteering to be part of committees.
Learning Activities
Goal 1
Provide up to date and current information in providing safe and high quality patient care.
Goal 2
Participate in development programs to achieve competency in nursing informatics
Learning Activities
Be on the look out for web-based education or seminars to increase competency in nursing informatics.
Alert my manager and volunteer to go to these education classes.
Access reliable resources to incorporate into practice and professional development.
Goal 3
Learning Activities
Collaborate with nurse informatics experts and colleagues to be able to initiate changes in EPIC which would be beneficial to nursing practice efficiency
Gather information from colleagues regarding their feedback on ways to improve EPIC and efficiency.
Call the IT department on who to call or email to suggest changes in patient flow sheets, i.e. place a 5 minute monitoring on restraint flow sheets upon initial application and every 2 hours thereafter so it doesn't get missed.
Strive to keep a positive attitude even during times of downtime. Develop a tip sheet with colleagues and keep it handy.
This is my 3rd trimester in the FNP program. I am a PCU staff nurse on maternity leave because I gave birth a month ago to this precious baby girl.
Competency Gaps
Brief Bio
I lack experience in leadership roles.
I have limited experience in participating in the design, selection process, implementation, and evaluation of systems.
I have not had an opportunity to act as an advocate of system users including patients or clients.
Together, let us explore the combination of nursing expertise and information technology in the development of safe patient care.
Thank you!
