Ensure your EHR supports nursing documentation and quality care initiatives
With hospitals preparing to demonstrate meaningful use of their electronic health record (EHR) to qualify for financial incentives, some nurses fear that overly complex EHR systems may increase their workload and get in the way of patient care. This 90-minute program will discuss best practices and documentation techniques to help nurses leverage the value of the EHR, get more involved with system implementation, and find ways to document smoothly and effectively that don’t add more to their daily routine or interfere with patient care activities.
- Ensure your EHR supports high-quality clinical care and evidence-based practice
- Improve the quality of nursing documentation without taking more time
- Gain best practices to leverage the EHR to support your nursing documentation process
- Follow step-by-step instructions to implement EHR as a clinical practice change, not an IT project
- Evaluate the effectiveness of the EHR system and nursing documentation and gain the know-how to make the necessary adjustments
- Discover how EHR systems can help improve outcomes such as length of stay and reduce events such as pressure ulcers and patient falls
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Identify at least five benefits of the EHR for nursing
- Describe the historical background for nursing’s use of the EHR and participation in EHR projects
- Discuss the key steps to organize and execute the EHR project as a practice change vs. an IT implementation
- Explain the steps for integrating evidence-based nursing practice in an EHR
- Outline three techniques to evaluate nursing adoption of the EHR
