Scenario 1:
Your hospital is implementing a new unified acute and
ambulatory Electronic Health Record (EHR) system through
which patient care documentation will occur. Interdisciplinary
assessment forms (including nursing), clinical decision support,
and medical notes will be documented in this system. The
implementation of the system is anticipated to improve the
hospital’s performance in a multitude of areas. In particular, it
is hoped that the use of the EHR system will reduce the rate of
patient safety events, improve the quality of care, deter sentinel
events, reduce patient readmissions, and impact spending. The
implementation of the EHR system is also
Introduction
Evaluation plan involves an integral part regarding a grant
suggestion providing information aimed at improving a project
during the development and implementation. I will participate
in the assessment of the scenario system in throughout the
project. The scenario includes the hospital that is implementing
the new unified as well as the Ambulatory EHR (Electronic
Health Record) system that enhances the documentation of
patient care. The purpose of the paper is explaining the selected
scenario one, explanation of the reasons for selecting it, and
summarizing of the research findings on the similar HIT
implementations. More so, there is a description of the
evaluation viewpoint, and goal guiding the assessment plan and
same rationale.
HIT System Selected
The new system to be implemented has various modules that
contain interdisciplinary assessment forms, medical notes, and
clinical decision support where their documentation is
guaranteed. The implementation of the unified system will
enhance improved performance of the hospital in several
departments. The new EHR system becomes of great importance
to the hospital since there is a reduction of medical errors,
reduction of the rate of the safety events of each patient,
improving the quality of healthcare, deterrence of sentinel
events, reduced patients readmissions as well as impact
spending. Another reason for choosing the scenario is that the
new system will enhance while fulfilling the requirements of
meaningful use as stipulated in the HITECH (Health
Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act.
Therefore, the need for evaluation regarding the EHR
implementation becomes paramount since it will help to identify
the associated risks while adjusting the modules required when
offering the medication services to the patients (Lanham,
Leykum & McDaniel, 2012).
Summary of Research Findings on Similar HIT Implementations
Several evaluations are analogous to the HIT system
implementation of the unified system with related differences
regarding the outcomes based on the primary goals. For
instance, some of the implemented systems fail to meet one
hundred percent of the requirements and the expectations. It
leads to the need for improving the system to ensure that most
of the requirements that it was developed and implemented for
have been met. The evaluation regarding several EHRs systems
has precisely shown various results as discussed below.
Technology and Patient Care
The critical element regarding healthcare information involves
the nursing documentation of the patients’ records. The HIT
systems are designed to utilize the literature based on the
knowledge related to the quality of care. The established
technology enhances improved patient care that has made the
nursing work easy and efficient. The EPR (Electronic Patient
Record) after the evaluation has proved to be of great
significance for the information workflow in the hospital. The
use of technology has evidently improved the patient result
quality as well as efficiency. The transmission of information
electronically reduces medical errors while saving time and
related resources. The benefits related to the EHRs in the
ambulatory practices are clearly identified to be improved
patient care as well as the office efficiency including the
potential financial advantages. More so, there are some barriers
realized during the implementation of such similar HIT project
like costs, resistance to change, the original system uses
difficulty and lacking standardization of the products of HER
(Board on Health Care Services, 2012).
Patients’ Records Confidentiality
When implementing the HIT systems in the hospital set up, the
need to include a module for the transfer of health records to
various departments is paramount. However, the information
should remain as secret as it would be whenever the patient has
his or he papered records while taking them to the departments
when asked to produce them. The EHRs transmission has shown
to be emphasizing on the need to ensure no sharing of medical
information to other parties not directly associated with the
patient and without the latter’s approval. However, some
disadvantages are identified where a hospital officer may have
the access rights to the confidential information of the patients
and happen to expose it to other individuals hence denying the
patient the right to secrecy regarding medical records.
Clinical Decision Support Systems
The implementation is also aimed at increasing the performance
of the hospital with the new technology. According to the
evaluation, the previously used CDSS involved the integration
of the clinical information systems like the outpatient and
inpatient EHRs. The purpose of the implementation includes
improving the decision-making process in the hospital hence
increasing the quality of healthcare for all patients. The
evaluation shows that half of the reviewed systems provided all
the appropriate action-oriented, event-driven, and real-time
decision support required to initiate the medication
interventions. However, there is some feature lacking during the
implementation like the ability to provide alternatives for the
information provided and analyzed (Levy & Heyes, 2012).
Patient Satisfaction with the System
The EHR system increased the comfort level of the patients.
There is a saving of time, an increase in the number of attended
patients, patients getting clinical summaries immediately, and
subsequent medication reports. After the evaluation, it showed
clearly that several patients got satisfied with the services
delivery within the hospital with the development and
implementation of the system. Reduced clinical information
errors proved proper and improved medication hence the need to
embrace the system. The system was found to have little
technical challenges hence becoming suitable for the healthcare
improvement.
Adoption of the HIT System
The system is seen to have faced minimal resistance during its
implementation. It is because previous research has proved the
system to be of significant benefits when delivering services to
the patients. More so, there is reduced medication errors when
using the system hence the need to adopt it without resistance.
There is the utilization of resources and serving several patients
at the same time (Van Gemert-Pijnen et al., 2011).
Describing the Goal and Viewpoint of the Evaluation Plan
The primary goal for the EHR involves improving the
healthcare quality based on the patient care documentation. The
new system will ensure that the medical recordings are
automated leading to minimal or no errors. Proper
documentation will provide improved performance of the
hospital and related healthcare services. The system is aimed at
reducing costs of operations of the hospital while increasing
medication benefits for the patients. The patients should be able
to have track information of their medication or clinical trend
without delay. The system should also coordinate all the
departments within the hospital so as to work together in
meeting the primary goal of improving the patient care
(Bélanger et al., 2012).
Conclusion
The EHRs primary objective of improving the quality of patient
care is achieved by ensuring the implementation stage is well
analyzed regarding the requirements and the documentation
done as a whole. The system should prove to be of great benefit
while improving the performance of the hospital. The evaluation
should be done at every subtask to ensure the best is regarding
the improved quality of healthcare is achieved by the system.

In particular, it is hoped that the use of the EHR system will reduce the rate of patient safety events, improve the quality of care, deter sentinel events, reduce patient readmissions, and impact spending. The implementation of the EHR system is also Introduction Evaluation plan involves an integral part regarding a grant suggestion providing information aimed at improving a project during the development and implementation. I will participate in the assessment of the scenario system in throughout the project. The scenario includes the hospital that is implementing the new unified as well as the Ambulatory EHR (Electronic Health Record) system that enhances the documentation of patient care. The purpose of the paper is explaining the selected scenario one, explanation of the reasons for selecting it, and summarizing of the research findings on the similar HIT implementations. More so, there is a description of the evaluation viewpoint, and goal guiding the assessment plan and same rationale. HIT System Selected The new system to be implemented has various modules that contain interdisciplinary assessment forms, medical notes, and clinical decision support where their documentation is guaranteed. The implementation of the unified system will enhance improved performance of the hospital in several departments. The new EHR system becomes of great importance to the hospital since there is a reduction of medical errors, reduction of the rate of the safety events of each patient, improving the quality of healthcare, deterrence of sentinel events, reduced patients readmissions as well as impact spending. Another reason for choosing the scenario is that the new system will enhance while fulfilling the requirements of meaningful use as stipulated in the HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act.

Therefore, the need for evaluation regarding the EHR implementation becomes paramount since it will help to identify the associated risks while adjusting the modules required when offering the medication services to the patients (Lanham, Leykum & McDaniel, 2012). Summary of Research Findings on Similar HIT Implementations Several evaluations are analogous to the HIT system implementation of the unified system with related differences regarding the outcomes based on the primary goals. For instance, some of the implemented systems fail to meet one hundred percent of the requirements and the expectations. It leads to the need for improving the system to ensure that most of the requirements that it was developed and implemented for have been met. The evaluation regarding several EHRs systems has precisely shown various results as discussed below. Technology and Patient Care The critical element regarding healthcare information involves the nursing documentation of the patients’ records. The HIT systems are designed to utilize the literature based on the knowledge related to the quality of care. The established technology enhances improved patient care that has made the nursing work easy and efficient. The EPR (Electronic Patient Record) after the evaluation has proved to be of great significance for the information workflow in the hospital. The use of technology has evidently improved the patient result quality as well as efficiency. The transmission of information electronically reduces medical errors while saving time and related resources. The benefits related to the EHRs in the ambulatory practices are clearly identified to be improved patient care as well as the office efficiency including the potential financial advantages. More so, there are some barriers realized during the implementation of such similar HIT project like costs, resistance to change, the original system uses difficulty and lacking standardization of the products of HER (Board on Health Care Services, 2012).
  • 4. Patients’ Records Confidentiality When implementing the HIT systems in the hospital set up, the need to include a module for the transfer of health records to various departments is paramount. However, the information should remain as secret as it would be whenever the patient has his or he papered records while taking them to the departments when asked to produce them. The EHRs transmission has shown to be emphasizing on the need to ensure no sharing of medical information to other parties not directly associated with the patient and without the latter’s approval. However, some disadvantages are identified where a hospital officer may have the access rights to the confidential information of the patients and happen to expose it to other individuals hence denying the patient the right to secrecy regarding medical records. Clinical Decision Support Systems The implementation is also aimed at increasing the performance of the hospital with the new technology. According to the evaluation, the previously used CDSS involved the integration of the clinical information systems like the outpatient and inpatient EHRs. The purpose of the implementation includes improving the decision-making process in the hospital hence increasing the quality of healthcare for all patients. The evaluation shows that half of the reviewed systems provided all the appropriate action-oriented, event-driven, and real-time decision support required to initiate the medication interventions. However, there is some feature lacking during the implementation like the ability to provide alternatives for the information provided and analyzed (Levy & Heyes, 2012). Patient Satisfaction with the System The EHR system increased the comfort level of the patients. There is a saving of time, an increase in the number of attended patients, patients getting clinical summaries immediately, and subsequent medication reports. After the evaluation, it showed clearly that several patients got satisfied with the services delivery within the hospital with the development and implementation of the system. Reduced clinical information
  • 5. errors proved proper and improved medication hence the need to embrace the system. The system was found to have little technical challenges hence becoming suitable for the healthcare improvement. Adoption of the HIT System The system is seen to have faced minimal resistance during its implementation. It is because previous research has proved the system to be of significant benefits when delivering services to the patients. More so, there is reduced medication errors when using the system hence the need to adopt it without resistance. There is the utilization of resources and serving several patients at the same time (Van Gemert-Pijnen et al., 2011). Describing the Goal and Viewpoint of the Evaluation Plan The primary goal for the EHR involves improving the healthcare quality based on the patient care documentation. The new system will ensure that the medical recordings are automated leading to minimal or no errors. Proper documentation will provide improved performance of the hospital and related healthcare services. The system is aimed at reducing costs of operations of the hospital while increasing medication benefits for the patients. The patients should be able to have track information of their medication or clinical trend without delay. The system should also coordinate all the departments within the hospital so as to work together in meeting the primary goal of improving the patient care (Bélanger et al., 2012). Conclusion The EHRs primary objective of improving the quality of patient care is achieved by ensuring the implementation stage is well analyzed regarding the requirements and the documentation done as a whole. The system should prove to be of great benefit while improving the performance of the hospital. The evaluation should be done at every subtask to ensure the best is regarding the improved quality of healthcare is achieved by the system.
