Nursing informatics

Nursing informatics






However, I would like to say that might be other important factors like carelessness while handling patients that might be brought by lack of essential skills for managing the clients. The society needs qualified staffs to handle them with adequate competencies in the health care. The idea and the recommendation are very educative to reduce the errors in the health care.

In the Quality chasm series comments on the proposal that is based on the simple rules based on the 21-century health care systems. I would like to support the idea because the 21st-century health care has learned to adopt simple rules like any patient should be tested first before any medication is given to the patient. These rules have seen it working in most of the hospitals, for example, I entered one hospital and explained the conditions and the seemed to give captured the problem, but he insisted that I go to the laboratory for the test before he could write a medication criteria. Ideally, the rules have assisted to some extent, but sometimes the quality aspect comes in the skills and perhaps how the staff was trained. Most of the colleges have at times failed to exercise the element of applying ethics in every situation especially at work, and this has led to the current problems. Ideally, the observation was perfect, and the recommendation was very much informative especially to the health care managers and the state (Wakefield, 2008).

The role of health information technology

It is the use of informatics factors in the design, development, utilization, and maintenance of the information systems for the health care. The health information exchange system has assisted in the passing of right information from one health care staff to the other for the sake of learning the experiences for general knowledge. Therefore, the implementation brought by Plaweski on the lack of concern could be addressed by the application of health information exchange (HIE), and hence one can learn from the other, and the errors will be minimized.

On the Quality, chasm system could be implemented effectively through an application of the electronic health records (EHR) for recording the information in particular nature for safety. Therefore, the 21st simple rules that are used in the process for quality are kept in the health records for emphasis and constant evaluation. The entire recommendation depends on the health information technology.
