    • “Computersare incredibly fast , accurate and stupid.
      Human beings are incredibly slow , inaccurate and brilliant .
      Together they are powerful beyond imagination”
      Albert Einstein
    • Why do we NEED to study N.I?
      In the 21st Century, information is
      doubling every 5yrs , if not tripling in quantity and quality.
      Information is POWER
      Technology also facilitates the creative process in nurses, affording amazing vehicles for
      patient education , teaching and learning , and providing general health promotion and prevention information on a global scale.
    • “THE HIGH TECH AND THE HIGH TOUCH”
      This can only become a common reality if nurses are comfortable working with computers and advanced technology while providing evidence based care for their clients .
      The healthcare of our clients is largely dependent on information.
      Every action taken depends on previous information and knowledge.
    • Definition:
      American Nurses Association's Scope and Standards for Nursing Informatics Practice (2008) :
      “ Nursing Informatics is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge and wisdom in nursing practice.”
    • Standard Areas of NURSING:
      Nursing Practice
      Nursing Education
      Nursing R esearch
      Nursing Administration. 
    • COMPUTERS IN NURSING EDUCATIONS
      COMPUTER Assisted Education
      PDA (Personal Digital Assistants)
      LCD Projectors
      Wireless Routers
      Desktops
      Laptops
      Smartphone
      VIDEOS/ANIMATIONS
      Distance learning
      Testing (NCLEX)
      Student and course record management
    • COMPUTERS IN NURSING PRACTICE
      Functions
      Records client information
      Provides access to other departments
      Used to manage client scheduling
      DOCUMENTAION OF CLIENT STATUS
      AND MEDICAL RECORDS KEEPING
      Provides access to standardized forms, policies and procedures
      Access data about client that may be somewhere in the medical record or elsewhere in health care agency.
    • BEDSIDE DATA ENTRY
      records clients assessments, medication administration, progress notes, care plan updating, client acuity and accrued charges
      COMPUTER BASED CLIENT RECORD
      EMRs/CPRs
      Provides easy retrieval of specific data such as trends in vital signs, immunization records, current problems
      It can be designed to work providers about conflicting medications or client parameters that indicate dangerous conditions
      ELECTRONIC ACCESS TO CLIENTS
      Used extensively in health care to assess and monitor clients conditions
      Data accumulated from various electronic devices are stored for research purposes
      Can monitor client
      Computerized diagnosis
      Telemedicine
      PRACTICE MANAGEMENT
      Used to order supplies, tests, meals, and services, from other departments
      Allows nursing service to determine the most costly items used by a particular nursing unit.
      May provide information or decisions to modify budget, provide different staffing, move supplies to different locations, or make other changes for more efficient and higher quality care
    • COMPUTERS IN NURSING PRACTICE
      A. Human resources
      All employers must maintain a data a database on each employee
      Administrators can use this database to communicate with employees, examine staffing patterns, and create budget programs
      B. Medical records management
      Allow client records to be searched for trends, number of cases, most expensive cases, and client outcomes.
      Nurse informat
      icistcan assist administrators with the design and implementation of systems that allow such searches to be generated, analyzed, printed, and distributed.
    • COMPUTERS IN NURSING PRACTICE
      C. Facilities management
      heating, air conditioning, ventilation, alarm systems are computer controlled.
      D. Budget and finance
      claims are transmitted much more quickly
      Can also effect cost-savings by reducing the desired services time needed for accounts payable and receivables.
    • COMPUTERS IN NURSING PRACTICE
      1. problem identification
      Useful in locating current literature about the problem and related concepts
      Helps in searching for existing documents, and e-mail to colleagues.
      2. literature review
      Software facilitate searches, contains thesauruses so that the most appropriate terms can be selected.
    • COMPUTERS IN NURSING PRACTICE
      3. research design
      Search literature for instruments that have already been established or to design and test instruments that need to be developed for past study.
      4. Data collection and analysis
      Helps create form for the collection of data such as informed consent, demographic data, and recording forms.
      Commonly used software for quantitative data analysis: SPSS ( statistical package for social sciences), SAS ( statistical analysis system), Sys STAT, MYSTAT
      5. Research dissemination
      computer word processing programs are used to author the final reports of research and send research to various readerships.
      Help speeds completion or research projects
       
    • WHAT DO WE NEED TO ACHIEVE NURSING INFORMATICS?
    • “Nursing practice will be revolutionized and we will truly be a profession of nurses with our own classification systems, bibliographic systems, and payment systems .”
    • We need to think outside the box?
    • We need to use the Internet to enhance our practice and provide tele-nursing care . We need to become wireless and conduct our services using all the newer IT tools.
      “ We have a long way to go, but if we utilize information technology effectively, informatics will become an integral part of our profession and the health care industry. I do believe we have the knowledge and perseverance and I am convinced it will come to pass.”-Dr. Virginia Saba
