Discussion 2 Nursing Informatics.
Remember that integrating your own thoughts with evidence from the literature is an effective to
demonstrate synthesis and critical analysis. Sometimes a few short direct quotes add value to your
work. But remember that quotes generally serve to share someone else’s thoughts, rather than your
analysis.Complete sentences, well organized, grammatically correct and free of spelling errors (have used spell check to help

Health informatics defined as “The integration of healthcare sciences, computer science, and management of healthcare information” (Saba 2015 p. 232). Healthcare informatics uses information technology to organize and analyze health records in order to improve healthcare outcomes. Health informatics provides electronic access to medical records for patients, doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, insurance companies, and health information technicians. According to the American Nurses Association (2001). “One of the best primary ways that informatics has changed nursing practice is through documentation.” Their ware time when nurses use paper charts and handwritten notes, but today the technology changes, so today, the nurses are more likely to input notes into electronic and used as medication administration records. Health records and other systems that keep a patient’s medical history up to date and is very easy to access all the healthcare management.
According to Sweeney, J. (Feb 2017), “electronic charting, nurses can obtain information quickly and efficiently with less error.” Health information is very important in Heathfield, and it also improves the daily workflow. It is easily available to all members of the care team, including the physician, other care providers, and healthcare organizations that the patient may visit. The other important part is care coordination, ability to track staffing, and easy access as communication, and it helps the nurses to identify areas where current processes can be improved.
There is a strong link between informatics and evidence-based practice. Describe one way (one paragraph) that informatics is used in evidence-based practice.
Evidence-based practices have strong evidence to support health informatics technicians, and how it is essential in nursing and those practices involve the use of health informatics technicians. According to Adair, T. (2012). “The practice determining those practices involves the use of health informatics, and the evidence that is collected regarding healthcare informatics of nursing plays an important role especially the patient care and the outcomes which it helps to determine the best in order to treat the patient conditions and to stable the patient situations in the future” (P.58). There are more data that is supporting informatics, which is collected and analyzed, and it is more accurate.
