Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose is to define the opportunities to improve practice and outcomes using technology. The interface between a programmer and clinical nurse specialist in design of outcome analyzer results in improved outcome measurement and analysis that allows for real time decision making. Significance: Clinical nurse specialist input is of critical importance when designing computer applications which examine outcomes. The knowledge of the literature, of patient care processes, and of outcomes relevant to nursing are provided by the clinical nurse specialist. The collaboration and skill set offered by clinical specialist results in application that can be used to improve practice. Background/Design: Clinical nurse specialist participated in development of computer application which analyzes outcomes. Application allows for rapid decision making/and intervention to prevent reoccurrence of negative clinical outcomes. Methods: The clinical nurse specialist provides specific knowledge base which informs programmer of outcomes which are applicable to the practice setting. The clinical specialist is able to recommend ways to display data which can be easily interpreted by the clinician. The ease of review allows for rapid decision-making, giving opportunity to reduce risk to patient during a treatment stay. Findings: Computer application which displays outcome data which is customized to the clinical setting is meaningful and is utilized to improve clinical outcomes. Immediate presentation of data allows for rapid action by clinician which supports prevention intervention (as opposed to traditional analysis of aggregated data post discharge). Conclusions: Clinical nurse specialists have unique skill-set which lends itself to development of computer applications for the clinical setting. Outcome selection, display of outcome data, real time data access provide an outcome measurement system that is of value to clinicians. The unique knowledge base of the clinician (knowledge of literature, experience in practice, analytical/problem solving skill) add a dimension to the design of outcome applications which is of critical importance. Implications for Practice: Rapid access to easily understood meaningful outcome data allows the practitioner to take preventative, individualized interventions early in treatment.
