Nursing Informatics and the Foundation of Knowledge, Fourth Edition teaches nursing students the history of healthcare informatics, current issues, basic informatics concepts, and health information management applications. This comprehensive text includes the building blocks of informatics through complicated topics such as data mining, bioinformatics, and system development.
Informatics, the science of processing data for storage and retrieval, is vital in today’s healthcare environment. At the core of informatics practice is the electronic health record (EHR). However, the scope of informatics encompasses many areas peripheral to the EHR, such as use of mobile devices, patient portals, data analytics, telehealth, and conducting health IT research. Health informatics specialists are at the forefront of effective programs that are changing patient outcomes and education, but producing these systems is not a simple task for any healthcare professional. This book presents key informatics concepts to help readers increase knowledge and expertise. The authors begin with the phases of the system development lifecycle (SDLC): planning and analysis, design and usability, testing, training, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation. This overview provides informatics nurses, physicians, pharmacists, dentists, dieticians, and other clinical professionals with a solid foundation of knowledge of each SDLC phase, positioning them for success within any clinical system. Coverage includes: Essential tools for project management Patient safety and engagement Security and privacy concepts Healthcare clinical decision support
