A Nurse’s Role in the Systems Development Life Cycle
While the process of developing and implementing a health
information technology system may seem overwhelming at first,
the systems development life cycle (SDLC) provides
organizations with a framework to deliver efficient and
effective information systems. Though the SDLC is a common
overarching structure for implementing information systems, it
is not a one-size-fits-all process. In fact, there are a multitude
of approaches that can be used to guide the systems
development life cycle. The SDLC approach that is most
appropriate for a particular organization will be highly
contextual and subject to organization-specific differences.
This week prompts you to analyze the process of selecting an
appropriate health information technology and then evaluate
techniques that positively impact the steps of the systems
development life cycle in an EHR implementation. You also
determine what barriers might occur at each stage and how these
could be overcome.
Learning Objectives
Students will:
Analyze how a nurse can contribute to each stage of the systems
development life cycle

The focus of this article is to determine what factors are most
important in predicting the acceptance of new health
information technology. The results of the study indicated that
self-efficacy, top management support, and the quality of
information retrieved are the most important determinants of the
willingness of nurses to adopt and use a new technology.

This article summarizes a literature review of the relationship
between electronic health records (EHRs) and quality of patient
care. The article identifies deficiencies in existing research
regarding the daily interactions of nurses, patients, and

electronic and paper-based documentation and its effect on
quality of care.

Retrieved from the Walden Library databases.
In this article, recommendations are given for purchasing health
information technology. These include selecting the appropriate
vendor, carefully considering the cost of both new equipment
and personnel, and involving clinicians in decisions.
Successful Implementation of Electronic Health Information
Technology
Since the inception of the HITECH Act, health organizations
have faced increased pressure to update their health information
technology (HIT) resources. As discussed last week, many
believe that the increased use of electronic health records and
the quick and efficient communication afforded by HIT can lead
to improved quality of patient care. Yet there are significant
costs associated with implementing such systems. What can
organizations do to ensure that the correct system is selected
and that the system will be appropriate for those required to use
it? Who should be involved in those decisions?
This week introduces the systems development life cycle and
discusses how it can guide an organization through the
complexities of adopting a new HIT system. In this Discussion,
you are asked to consider the role of nurses in the SDLC
process.
To prepare:
Review the steps of the systems development life cycle.
Think about your own organization, or one with which you are
familiar, and the steps the organization goes through when
purchasing and implementing a new HIT system.
Consider what a nurse could contribute to decisions made at
each stage when planning for new health information
technology. What might be the consequences of not involving
nurses?
Reflect on your own experiences with your organization
selecting and implementing new technology. As an end user, do
you feel you had any input in the selection or and planning of
the new HIT system?
ASSIGNMENT:
Post an analysis of the ramifications of an organization not
involving nurses in each stage of the systems development life
cycle when purchasing and implementing a new HIT system.
Give specific examples of potential issues at each stage and
how the inclusion of nurses could help avoid such issues.

A Nurse’s Role in the Systems Development Life CycleWhile the proc.docx

  • 1. A Nurse’s Role in the Systems Development Life Cycle While the process of developing and implementing a health information technology system may seem overwhelming at first, the systems development life cycle (SDLC) provides organizations with a framework to deliver efficient and effective information systems. Though the SDLC is a common overarching structure for implementing information systems, it is not a one-size-fits-all process. In fact, there are a multitude of approaches that can be used to guide the systems development life cycle. The SDLC approach that is most appropriate for a particular organization will be highly contextual and subject to organization-specific differences. This week prompts you to analyze the process of selecting an appropriate health information technology and then evaluate techniques that positively impact the steps of the systems development life cycle in an EHR implementation. You also determine what barriers might occur at each stage and how these could be overcome.

The focus of this article is to determine what factors are most important in predicting the acceptance of new health information technology. The results of the study indicated that self-efficacy, top management support, and the quality of information retrieved are the most important determinants of the willingness of nurses to adopt and use a new technology.

  • 4. (5), 38–41. Retrieved from the Walden Library databases. In this article, recommendations are given for purchasing health information technology. These include selecting the appropriate vendor, carefully considering the cost of both new equipment and personnel, and involving clinicians in decisions. Successful Implementation of Electronic Health Information Technology Since the inception of the HITECH Act, health organizations have faced increased pressure to update their health information technology (HIT) resources. As discussed last week, many believe that the increased use of electronic health records and the quick and efficient communication afforded by HIT can lead to improved quality of patient care. Yet there are significant costs associated with implementing such systems. What can organizations do to ensure that the correct system is selected and that the system will be appropriate for those required to use it? Who should be involved in those decisions? This week introduces the systems development life cycle and discusses how it can guide an organization through the complexities of adopting a new HIT system. In this Discussion, you are asked to consider the role of nurses in the SDLC process. To prepare: Review the steps of the systems development life cycle. Think about your own organization, or one with which you are familiar, and the steps the organization goes through when purchasing and implementing a new HIT system. Consider what a nurse could contribute to decisions made at each stage when planning for new health information technology. What might be the consequences of not involving nurses? Reflect on your own experiences with your organization

ASSIGNMENT: Post an analysis of the ramifications of an organization not involving nurses in each stage of the systems development life cycle when purchasing and implementing a new HIT system. Give specific examples of potential issues at each stage and how the inclusion of nurses could help avoid such issues. APA FORMAT 2 pages minimum 3 references
