Evidence-based practice specifically focuses on a holistic approach that encompasses clinical expertise, patient values, and the best researched evidence to improve patient care outcomes. As healthcare trends change to comply with the adoption of enhanced technology, compliance of government healthcare reimbursements, and higher quality care, strong leadership and continued research is needed (Huber, 2014). Nurse leaders have the vital, but sometimes challenging duty of promoting evidence-based practices in a usually complex healthcare setting. Not only should the nurse leader gather clinical data that may help improve patient outcomes and nurse practices, nurse leaders should also encourage a work environment that is open to the change that results from evidence-based practice discoveries. Through the development of a building-block approach, nurse leaders can promote evidence-based practices by incorporating the process in every aspect of the healthcare structure they supervise.
Development and implementation of new information technologies that allow global networking, give modern medicine the epithet of “informatical medicine”. Information technologies increasingly provide the help in system approach of solving medical problems . Disposition of the right information enables the preparation of accurate reports, for example, usage of hospital capacities, or number of occupied beds. At the same time it is easier to monitor treatment and to check the information exchange. Use of information technologies enables change of the healthcare system - how to improve public health, the healthcare of the system users, reduce costs, save time and
Arul Leo Felix, A.Arockia Faustine and D.Sellathambi et al  Technology plays the main role in care not just for sensory devices however conjointly in communication, recording and display device. It’s important to observe numerous medical parameters and post operational days. Patient observance systems are gaining their importance because the invasive world senior population will increase demands for caretaking. These systems use wireless technologies to transmit very important signs for medical analysis. The aim is to supply a more robust health care to individuals in additional economic and pertinent friendly manner.
Informatics skills for all nurses Nursing Informatics is the "science and practice (that) integrates nursing, its information and knowledge, with management of information and communication technologies to promote the health of people, families, and communities worldwide." (IMIA Special Interest Group on Nursing Informatics 2009). Good nursing skills not only involves the direct impact on patient care but the ability to record, store, access and retrieve information that will assist in the care the health of the patient. Such care may involve the transfer of patient or care. The advent of electronic system given a lift, ward, hospital or country makes this area of nursing care reliable for quick access and as such globally nurse acquire an adequate working knowledge of various micro processing outlets such as tablets, smart phones and other specialized medical devices.
The Impact of Informatics on Healthcare Technology has impacted health care in ways that will allow the practicing professional to deliver the best care that is relevant to patients today. As new technology continues to emerge, and as healthcare professionals (HCP) continue to utilize the current research available, it will become safer to manage and apply advanced health care for patients today that was not available previously. Also, centralizing patient data will allow the (HCP) to see an extensive view of the patient profile that will help to deliver quality, safe and cost-effective care. Technology has an impact on the safe delivery of care. Safety has always been in the forefront in managing patient care, especially when administering medications.
Technological advancements in healthcare are helping facilities work as efficiently and effectively as possible. Accepting these changes can help physicians and the like provide the best care to patients. One such technological advancement is the conversion from paper medical records to electronic medical records, or EMRs. EMRs provide higher quality care for patients by streamlining the transfer of information from different healthcare providers, making health records more accessible for patients who see multiple healthcare professionals, and by reducing mistakes within the medical records themselves. To begin with, electronic medical records are composed of information from multiple healthcare professionals, so all patient information
The role of Advanced Practice Nurses and Registered Nurses are same in Informatics regarding accessing, protecting and documenting patients Electronic Health Record(EHR). APRN’s have more access to EHR. For example, they have access to pictures of MRI, Echo and x-rays. Business/Finance Family Nurse Practitioners play a significant role in delivering cost effective health care to the community by emphasizing more on healthy life styles, preventive health care and provide better primary care compared to physicians by listening to the patients and spending more time with
INTRODUCTION For benefits to hospital, clinics, dispensary or pathology labs for maintaining patients details and their test results, we are developing a powerful, flexible and user friendly Hospital Management System. It is designed to offer different services for the hospital such as medical, administration and management. It is an integrated end-to-end Hospital Management System that provides relevant information across the hospital to support effective decision making for patient care, hospital administration and critical financial accounting, in a seamless flow. The Hospital Management System software product is designed to improve the quality and management of hospital in the areas of clinical process analysis and activity based costing.
All this are some of the uses of informatics applications. SIGNIFICANCE TO THE NURSING PROFESSION: this concept is important as it have helped to advance the profession and move the profession from paper age to computer age. With the use of this applications nurses have been able to improve in the care they render to their patients. They have been able to say time spent on carrying out task in the ward thereby giving them more room to focus on the care of their patients. IMPORTANCE TO THE WORLD: this concept is important as it helps generally in improving the life of the population.
Clinical research is from acute to chronic care experience throughout life span. It involves health promotion and preventive care for individual, families and communities in different settings. It is important for nursing research to widen the scope in order to have a greater impact in future. The aspect of health promotion and preventive care are very important because some diseases are better prevented than treated and while some changes are irreversible such as aging are part of human experience. Health systems and outcomes research focuses on how health care delivery influences quality, cost and experience of patient.
