Webinar Explores how Nurse Informaticists Improve Patient Outcomes

An evidence-based care plan implemented by nurse informaticists improved patient outcomes in a White Plains, New York hospital. The plan, and factors in its success, will be analyzed in an upcoming webinar.

The webinar, scheduled for May 15, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. eastern, is hosted by Zynx Health in conjunction with Health IT Outcomes. It will explore an initiative at White Plains Hospital where nursing leadership implemented evidence-based care plans and saw care plan utilization increase from 58 percent to 95 percent. User satisfaction among clinicians increased as well. Factors in the success included nurse informaticists who brought a rich history of experience as staff nurses and informaticists that helped bridge the communication gap between clinicians and informaticists, according to Health IT Outcomes.

Further information and registration for the webinar is available here.

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, according to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
