Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: At a 406 bed acute care hospital Magnet nurses took control of the electronic medical record (EMR) go live process. Many hospitals choose to have only information systems personnel involved in these processes but having Magnet nurses involved brought the focus more directly to the system support for the end user and on the impacts on specific departmental workflow processes. Methodology: Nurses participated in a collaborative system build and integrated testing of the new product. Significant training and resources were spent to insure support for the initiative. The implementation process included an incident command center that was run by the nurse informaticist or designee, and Magnet nurses deployed out to the units with wireless phones to contact the command center for real time assistance. Because of this model, they became the experts on their units for assisting colleagues with questions, concerns and problems. Conclusion: This approach led to a very successful system implementation related to the user confidence and utilization. This model contributed to the Magnet culture as it provided the nursing personnel with higher level of systems knowledge and has benefited them as the hospital continues to embrace technology to achieve greater patient safety in the areas of medication administration, lab specimen processing and general nursing documentation. This also led to positive implementation outcomes and further support of ongoing and future systems direction. Details of the level of involvement, the organization, scheduling, and current status of the Magnet super users will be covered.
