    Putting it all together…
  • 7. What is the CIS? 
    • “Array or collection of applications and functionality; amalgamation of systems, medical equipment, and technologies working together that are committed or dedicated to collecting, storing, and manipulating healthcare data and information and providing secure access to interdisciplinary clinicians navigating the continuum of client care” (McGonigle, D., & Mastrian, K., 2009, p. 443)."
    • 8. Allows patient data to be available when and where it is needed…with the click of a button.
  • Why a CIS? 
    “The use of health information
    technology should lead to more efficient, safer, and higher quality care” (Jha et al., 2009, p. 1628)
    If utilized correctly, the CIS makes our
     jobs easier!  
  • 9. Who should be involved in picking a  CIS?
    • Nurses HAVE to be involved in choosing a good CIS

  • 58. HIPAA
    The Health Insurance Portability and
    Accountability Act (HIPPA)
    • “HIPAA is a collection of federal laws and regulations has wide-ranging impacts for healthcare providers, health plans, and businesses related to the healthcare industry and is administered by the U.S. Health and Human Services Department” (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, 2006). 
    • 59. HIPPA protects patient information by prohibiting hospital employees such as physicians and nurses from disclosing the information in the chart to anyone outside of that patient’s healthcare providers.
    • There are penalties for violation of the law such as: Wrongful Disclosure of Individually Identifiable Health Information:
    • 60. Wrongful disclosure offense: $50,000, imprisonment of not more than one year or both
    • 61. Offense under false pretenses: $100,000, imprisonment or not more than 5 years, or both
    • 62. Offense with intent to sell information: $250,000, imprisonment of not more than 10 years, or both “ (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, 2006)
    HIPAA cont…
  • 63. Cost
    • The cost of implementing a CIS system can be a big deciding factor for health systems.
    • 64. “Implementation costs have been estimated to exceed $700,000 per hospital (15% of capital expenses),and hospital IEHR operating costs exceed 2% of operating expenses (about $ 1.7 million). Physician expenses are around $30,000 per doctor for implementation and $1,000 per year for operating costs”(Lockwood, 2009).
    • 65. There are financial programs available for the implementation costs of a CIS system.
    • “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (i.e., the Stimulus Act) has made implementation of health system IT a priority, authorizing approximately $19 billion in incentives between 2009 and 2019” (Lockwood, 2009).
    • 66. This program will help increase the number of hospitals using a CIS.
    Although the implementation costs are high,
    the system will save money in the long term!
    Cost cont…
  • 67. Cost cont...
    “Evidence suggests that an IEHR system could reduce aggregate healthcare costs. A cost-benefit study of IEHR use in primary care practice settings estimated a net savings over 5 years of $86,400 per clinician,' and a recent study estimated that the United States could save $77 billion per year in healthcare costs when IEHR use reaches 90% of providers” (Lockwood, 2009).
    “Implementing IEHRs should decrease administrative costs to payers and providers by generating complete and accurate billing data exchanges. The reduction in healthcare insurance premiums could reduce expenses for employers who provide medical insurance and increase the number of firms offering such benefits. It would also reduce Medicaid and Medicare costs” (Lockwood, 2009).
  • 68. Educational Tools
    "Implementation of systems within health care team is the responsibility of many people and department systems require a collaboration and knowledge sharing to successfully implement and maintain successful standards of care" (McGonigle, D., & Mastrian, K., 2009, p. 214).
  • 69. Education cont..
    How should users be educated on the
    system and updates? 
    • Implementing a new system can take some time and should be introduced gradually. 
    • 70. Institution should evaluate missions and goals as to why a new system is needed.
    -efficiency and easier access to patient data
    -structure legibility of information standardization
    -reducing cost
    -improve safety and quality care
  • 71. Who should be doing the education? 
     Team from clinical specialty areas and support service. 
    • Healthcare Clinician
    • 72. NURSES!! Nurses must be involved with design, development, education, and the implementation process to ensure that the system meets the needs of staff. This will result in user satisfaction and will help determine when more education is needed. 
  • How often should a CIS
    be updated? 
    • Customization or configuration to CIS is required when errors are identified
    • 73. Creation of a template is often made specific to various units’ workflow. 
    "Maintenance of the systems requires ongoing efforts to keep them up to date as operational
    and clinical requirements and process change"
    (Shortliffe and Camino p. 261)
  • 74. Conclusion
    Clinical Information Systems (CIS) 
    may represent one of the most important roles in delivery and 
    management of healthcare…
    “The integration of technology within healthcare organizations has limitless possibilities…success will be achieved when health care incorporates technology systems in a way that they are not viewed as separate tools to support healthcare practices, but necessary instruments to provide healthcare” (McGonigle, D., & Mastrian, K., 2009, p. 215).
