[Answered] NR-361 Week 2: Experiences With Healthcare Information Systems


NR 361 Information Systems In Healthcare


This week’s graded discussion topic relates to the following Course Outcome (CO).

  • CO1 Describe patient-care technologies as appropriate to address the needs of a diverse patient population. (PO 1)

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, how has the medical record exposure in nursing school impacted your current knowledge?


According to Silow-Carroll , Edwards, & Rodin (2012), “for an EHR system to be used successfully, it must be integrated through a well-designed process and into a receptive culture” (p. 21). In last week’s discussion I shared an experience regarding an incident when Cleveland Clinic first introduced the ESI department to the EPIC ASAP system. The younger nurses, including myself, were excited about its arrival. Senior nursing staff was less optimistic. During an 8-hour EPIC ASAP competency course one senior nurse who had at last 30 years of experience never returned to class after the lunch break. Even though she asked lots of questions she had a negative attitude towards the change. That same nurse put in her retirement shortly after the course and made her exit out 2 weeks before EPIC ASAP went live..…please the purchase button below to access the entire solution at $5
