Hebda, T., Hunter, K., & Czar, P. (2019). Handbook of informatics for nurses and healthcare professionals (6th ed.). NY, NY: Pearson. This is the book I use please use direct quotes from book to include in my discussion post. I currently work in a hospital on a telemetry floor. It has been an easy transition for me because I was born in a generation of technology and how it is always evolving. Here is the assignment guidelines below: This week’s graded discussion topic relates to the following Course Outcomes (CO)
CO3: Define standardized terminology that reflects nursing’s unique contribution to patient outcomes. (PO #3)
CO4: Investigate safeguards and decision-making support tools embedded in patient care technologies and information systems to support a safe practice environment for both patients and healthcare workers. (PO #4)
Share your experiences with healthcare information systems, past or present. Has it been an easy transition or difficult? Why do you believe your experience has been positive or negative? If you are currently not working in a healthcare setting, how has the medical record exposure in nursing school impacted your current knowledge?
