Organizational Systems and Quality Leadership A. In a study written by Liza Heslop and Sai Lu, the authors contended that nursing-sensitive indicators (NSIs) play a significant role in enhancing the nursing care performance of nurses (Heslop & Lu, 2014). To note, the NSIs also shows the structures, processes, and outcomes of nursing care that is why they greatly impact the way how nursing care is delivered (Magnet Today, 2013). For example, the Magnet Recognition is so focused on enhancing the quality of NSIs because “they want to achieve new levels of quality, efficiency and effectiveness” (Magnet Today, 2013). Consequently, the use of NSIs is also crucial with how nurses provide a high-quality patient care.

For the purpose of this discussion, I will discuss nursing informatics and clinical informatics, followed by two examples of how clinical informatics is used in my organization. I will explain how a nurse manager uses data management as a strategy to improve patient care on the nursing unit. Lastly, I will explain why President Bush mandated the implementation of the electronic health record by 2014. Although, clinical informatics and nursing informatics appear similar, and cross paths at times, each indent is different. Nursing informatics incorporates nursing science with computer and information sciences technology to manage and communicate information (New scope and standards of nursing informatics practice, 2015).
