To Prepare:

  • Review the concepts of technology application as presented in the Resources.
  • Reflect on how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence may help fortify nursing informatics as a specialty by leading to increased impact on patient outcomes or patient care efficiencies.

The Assignment: (4-5 pages not including the title and reference page)

In a 4- to 5-page project proposal written to the leadership of your healthcare organization, propose a nursing informatics project for your organization that you advocate to improve patient outcomes or patient-care efficiency. Your project proposal should include the following:

  • Describe the project you propose.
  • Identify the stakeholders impacted by this project.
  • Explain the patient outcome(s) or patient-care efficiencies this project is aimed at improving and explain how this improvement would occur. Be specific and provide examples.
  • Identify the technologies required to implement this project and explain why.
  • Identify the project team (by roles) and explain how you would incorporate the nurse informaticist in the project team.
  • Use APA format and include a title page and reference page.
  • Use the Safe Assign Drafts to check your match percentage before submitting your work.

The Impact OF Nursing Informatics on Patient Outcomes  and  Patient Care Efficiencies

Today, in healthcare, besides making sure patients get good care and are safe, it’s also important to make sure care is efficient and patients get better. Technology is now very important in healthcare. Nursing informatics is also very important. It helps nurses use health technology tools better. According to McGonigle & Mastrian (2022), nursing informatics helps use data and technology to help nurses, doctors, patients, and others make better decisions about how to take care of patients. Projects using technology have been used to make care and nursing better. This paper suggests a project using nursing informatics to make patients better or care more efficient.

Project Description (Patient Queue Management)

When patients go to hospitals, how they feel there affects how well they’re taken care of. Using systems to manage queues can make waiting times shorter, making care better and more efficient. According to Mosier et al. (2019), managing patients well helps hospitals work better and give better care by making wait times shorter and meeting care goals better. Using a queue management system would show real-time queue status, tell care providers about patient flow, let patients check their status, join a virtual queue, and make appointments. It can also be linked with other systems to prioritize cases like emergencies, elderly, pregnant, and disabled patients. Sometimes, patients are stressed and in pain when they go to hospitals, so they want the best care and comfort (Sipes, 2016). This system not only makes patients’ experience better but also helps manage staff better. This project would make patient experience better, make care more efficient, and make staff work better. Using a queue management system would help schedule appointments for patients and make them wait less.

Stakeholders Impacted By This Project

Working together as a team is very important in healthcare to give good care and keep patients safe. For this project, many different people will be affected. These include patients, nurses, IT experts, leaders, and administrators. Patients are the main ones who will use and benefit from this project. The system will let them book and change appointments and see how busy the hospital is, so they can come when it’s best for them. According to Ng et al. (2018), patients are happier when they get care quickly. Using queue management systems makes patients happier and gets their needs met faster.

IT and nursing informatics experts are also very important for this project. The project is based on IT, so IT experts are needed. They’ll make sure the system does what it’s supposed to do and meets the hospital’s needs. According to Bidari et al. (2021), IT is very important in healthcare now. So, it’s really needed for this project. Besides setting up the project, this team will also maintain other systems and technologies. The project lets them use their skills and IT knowledge to make patients happier and care better.

Leaders and administrators will give money and say if the project can happen. They’ll look at the benefits and decide if it’s a good idea. They’ll also tell everyone about the changes coming. This makes it easier for everyone to adjust to the new project. Finally, nurses and other care providers work with patients every day. They’ll use this system to schedule appointments and get ready for busy times. They’ll also say how well the system works and if it helps patients and the hospital.

Patient Outcome or Patient-Care Efficiencies This Project is Aimed at Improving

Using a queue management system will make care and patient experience better in many ways. It will make patients happier and make care better. According to McGonigle & Mastrian (2022), making patients happier and care providers satisfied makes hospitals perform better. Using this project will make patients happier and more satisfied, so they’ll have a better time at the hospital. Also, the system will help patients schedule appointments better, so they don’t have to wait long. This will make patients happier and make care better. Lastly, the system will help manage care providers better. Leaders will know when there will be lots of patients, so they can have enough care providers ready. This will make patients’ experience better.

Technologies Required in The Proposed Project

To make this project work, we need different technologies. These include a patient flow management system, a computer network, and ways for patients to use the system like an app, website, or messaging. The website or app will let patients check the queue and how long they have to wait. Clinicians will use computers to track patient flow and prepare for more patients. There will also be screens showing patient tickets and where they are in the queue. The computer system and database are the base of the project. Care providers will use them to watch data and patient queues to see urgent cases and get more workers, so wait times are shorter.

Project Team By Roles

For this project to work, the team needs to work together well. The team includes a leader, IT experts, nurses, and patients. As Sipes (2016) found, change is normal, but in healthcare, it’s important for everyone to work together to make changes work. The leader will lead the project and make sure everyone knows what’s happening. The IT experts will make sure the system works well. They’ll make sure it helps patients and the hospital. Lastly, nurses, care providers, and patients will use the system. They’ll also say how well it works and if it helps patients and the hospital.
