The Nurses are also essential stakeholders because they spend the most time with the patient’s and provide the most documentation on each patient as well. Their input on what kind of system would be best for their hospital would be vital. Their expertise is in patient care and since they are doing most of the charting, what they feel will work should be considered. The

Advanced Information Management and the Application of Technology nurses would contribute to the systems success by properly documenting and giving input on what needs changed. D. Evaluating the Success of System Implementation The American Informatics Nursing Association supports the development and implementation of evidence-based health information systems that improve safety.[www161] To measure HIS implementation success, facility would need to evaluate the HIS’s data gathering and the reporting of patient safety-related incidents. There would need to be a comparison of the data gathering ease between the old-fashioned paper charting and the new HIS. A successful HIS would make the gathering of data and reporting of these incidents much less work than the previous system. It would also increase the accuracy of the reported incidents by cutting down on the chance for human error in documentation. The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society states the following in regard to nursing informatics: “Nursing informatics is a well establish specialty within nursing which today has evolved to be an integral part of healthcare delivery and a differentiating factor in the selection, implementation, and evaluation of health IT that supports safe, high quality, patient-centric care”[www161]. To properly evaluate the success, we would evaluate if the HIS has indeed streamlined the processes for bedside providers, so they can spend more time taking care of the patient, delivering a more quality care environment. Quality of care success can be measured by patient satisfaction surveys and by surveying the bedside health care provider. Improvement in clinical quality measures would also be a way to evaluate success. [And18]

Advanced Information Management and the Application of Technology Healthcare Information Systems are an excellent way to keep patient care safe and secure. As more hospitals use these, there will be less paper waste in hospitals. With the streamlining the clinicians will be able to spend more time with their patients instead of hand charting. As we move into the future HIS will help us to keep up with the growing population of people needing hospitalization. References Anderson, B., & Manno, M. (2018, January 17).
