The Nurses are also essential stakeholders because they spend the most time with thepatient’s and provide the most documentation on each patient as well. Their input on what kindof system would be best for their hospital would be vital. Their expertise is in patient care andsince they are doing most of the charting, what they feel will work should be considered. The
Advanced Information Management and the Application of Technologynurses would contribute to the systems success by properly documenting and giving input onwhat needs changed.D.Evaluating the Success of System ImplementationThe American Informatics Nursing Association supports the development andimplementation of evidence-based health information systems that improve safety.[www161] Tomeasure HIS implementation success, facility would need to evaluate the HIS’s data gatheringand the reporting of patient safety-related incidents. There would need to be a comparison of thedata gathering ease between the old-fashioned paper charting and the new HIS. A successful HISwould make the gathering of data and reporting of these incidents much less work than theprevious system. It would also increase the accuracy of the reported incidents by cutting down onthe chance for human error in documentation.The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society states the following inregard to nursing informatics: “Nursing informatics is a well establish specialty within nursingwhich today has evolved to be an integral part of healthcare delivery and a differentiating factorin 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 HIShas indeed streamlined the processes for bedside providers, so they can spend more time takingcare of the patient, delivering a more quality care environment. Quality of care success can bemeasured 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.

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