Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The National Institutes of Health, Department of Perioperative Medicine, implemented electronic documentation for statisical perioperative information in June 2006, and implemented nursing clinical documentation in July 2009, which interfaced with the clinical center's preexisting electronic medical records system. Purpose: The goal of this poster is to educate institutions regarding lessons learned from our implementation of a perioperative information system. Description of Events: Since Executive Order 13335 mandated electronic patient care records in 2004, hospitals have been charged to implement an electronic medical record system, including a perioperative information system. Paper charting is fast becoming obsolete. Advantages of an electronic medical record include readability, consistency in charting, accessibility to care provider, simplicity, increased speed in charting, ease of obtaining data, and increased patient protection from human errors. Perioperative Nursing Implications: Downtime processes and education to be used if system is not stable or is down. Delay in accessing patient information when interfaces not working. Charting is streamlined, easier, and saves time for perioperative nurses. Patient can receive more individualized attention from the perioperative nurse. Outcomes: Many lessons during this implementation project were learned. Institutional decisions are made for reasons which are not always shared with key players in the implementation. If any clinical staff will be involved with the implementation of the system, additional resources must be provided to assume clinical duties. The institution needs to have a financial plan for unplanned costs. If interfacing with an existing hospital information system, make sure information is compatible and fields match in both systems. A change or upgrade in any system or process may require modifications. The quick fix does not always work. A thorough change in management process needs to be in effect in order to ensure valid testing of system changes. In conclusion, while there are many advantages for utilizing a perioperative information system, it must be realized that such an implementation is a complex process and the specific needs of the institution adopting such a system should be carefully considered.
