and can act as a champion in training for the staff. Since the nurse leader will be an end-user, having their support is critical to the success of the HIS. They can collect feedback after the go- live date and aid in updating the system to meet the specific needs of their unit. Evaluating Success Two standards that can be used to determine the success of an HIS implantation are both from the American Nurses Association (ANA). Standard 1: Assessment, states that the registered nurse collects pertinent data and information relative to the healthcare consumer’s health or the situation [ CITATION Ame152 \l 1033 ]. By using electronic charting available at the bedside, nursing will be able to enter in pertinent assessment data, as well as have access to the data entered by other members of the patient’s healthcare team. This consolidated and timely data will be able to guide the nurse in individualizing each assessment, not just to the disease process, but to any other concerns that might be present. Assessment is the guiding force behind treatment, which is measured by patient outcomes and discharge satisfaction surveys. Positive outcome and high scores on the surveys are indicators of success for this measure. The second standard for evaluation is the ANA’s Standard 2: Diagnosis, which states that the registered nurse analyzes assessment data to determine actual or potential diagnoses, problems, and issues [ CITATION Ame152 \l 1033 ].

Evaluation of this goal will include auditing charts for accuracy, completeness of documentation, nursing care plans, interventions taken, and tracking QI measures, such as rates of infection and pressure ulcers. High scores for completeness and accuracy and low scores for infections and pressure ulcers indicate success of the HIS implementation.
