Many healthcare organizations have implemented electronic clinical documentation systems in the past five years. Besides learning how to use the documentation system, the nurses must also learn to use the clinical nursing documentation within these systems. There can be a steep learning curve during this process and the accuracy of the data needs to be assessed. It is also imperative that nursing be able to use the data within these documentation systems to improve the quality of care that nurses provide. Therefore, nursing must be able to rely on the data that is retrieved from these systems. It is necessary to examine the similarities and differences of the data between the early adoption of the clinical documentation system to a time beyond the initial steep learning curve and when the nurses have become experienced users. This assessment will allow the organization to have confidence in using the data for quality improvement efforts. The purpose of this study was to describe the changes in patterns of use of standardized nursing languages, NANDAi, NIC, and NOC, over two time periods in two acute care hospitals located in the midwest United States. Data were compared from the time period shortly after implementation of the electronic clinical documentation system (time 1) to a time period more than one year later (time 2). This presentation will describe the most frequently documented nursing diagnoses, interventions, and patient outcomes in time period 1 and 2 and will demonstrate the differences. The change and variation in each of the NOC outcomes will be described for each time period and the differences will be discussed. The impact of studying these changes on the organization's ability to utilize the data for quality purposes and the ability to utilize standardized nursing languages to determine the effectiveness of nursing care will be discussed.
