This downloadable resource addresses the challenges of converting to and adapting clinical practice in OB/Neonatal/NICU and women's health settings to the use of electronic data management systems.
Information technology is vital to improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care. Most perinatal nurses practice with information technology every day, but few have had education to prepare them to incorporate technology into their practice. This guide provides the much-needed fundamentals of nursing informatics and health information technology tailored to the perinatal setting.
Developed for nursing informatics professionals, nurses responsible for implementing systems and directors/managers who have system implementation responsibility, this resource provides an overview of the current informatics environment as well as essential information on planning, selection and implementation of electronic systems within clinical settings.
Included with the guide is a toolkit with customizable templates to use with your next clinical implementation, including:
An extensive list of acronyms and abbreviations, as well as a comprehensive glossary of terms, round out the guide, making it an ideal introduction for perinatal nurses and other health care professionals responsible for health information technology in their facility.
Perinatal Nursing Informatics Guide for Clinical Health Information Technology is available at no charge to AWHONN members and is ready for immediate download. Non-AWHONN members must pay $69.95 to download this resource.
