(the EHR database), practitioner order entry (POE)—also known as computerized practitioner order entry (CPOE)—clinical decision support (CDS), and practitioner documentation.One of the major potential benefits of electronic health information is the ability to engage patients in their care and provide venues to access caregivers virtually, using email and web platforms, providing ease and convenience to the patient. The healthcare sector is just beginning to realize the potential value of the large pools of de-identified data at its disposal. This aggregate data, also known as secondary or big data, can be used to improve care, discover patterns, reduce costs, support research, and identify and respond to consumer preferences. The process of tapping this data is known by many terms, such as analytics, data mining, knowledge discovery in data bases, or business intelligence. The result is that the analysis provided can support better and timelier decision making, decrease risks, and discover valuable insights if appropriate tools are used. Harper (2013) suggested improved staffing models based upon patient information as one potential application for nurses.Electronic record systems are built around large databases that allow input, storage, and retrieval of specific data for use in a meaningful way that can support other functions, such as decision support, results reporting, and order entry. Clinical documentation and clinical messaging are other basic functions. Use and reuse of data relies upon the collection of structured data that follows a format that supports manipulation.Week 4: Information LiteracyAs discussed in the lesson from Week 2, the TIGER initiative identified three components for the TIGER nursing informatics competencies model: (a) basic computercompetencies, (b) information literacy, and (c) information management. Additionally, health care providers must be able to determine what information is needed, utilize the appropriate resources to find the information, use valid resources to critique the
information, provide evidence-based care based on this information, and evaluate the outcomes of the process.Information literacy refers to the use of digital technology to locate, navigate, manage, integrate, evaluate, create, and effectively communicate in a rapidly changing information environment in the pursuit of knowledge. The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) Core Competencies advocated incorporating competencies from technology informatics with Advanced Practice Nursing (APN) curricula to teach nurse practitioner students how to use available technology to enhance the safety and health outcomes of their patients (NONPF, 2017, p. 8). The Essentials of Master's Education in Nursing written by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) (2013) recognized that master's-prepared nurses use technologies to deliver and coordinate patient care as well as to enhance communication. Graduate level Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) Competencies recommended the use of information and technology to communicate,
