Abstract:
Poster Presentation: This presentation describes one organization's continuing journey of transitioning to the total electronic medical record (EMR); and presents the interdisciplinary efforts to align with the institution's missions of education, patient care, and research. From the outset, the organization considered conversion to the EMR a clinical project, not an information technology (IT) project. Clinicians from Departments of Nursing, Medicine and Pharmacy were appointed to the team. These clinicians with years of experience were relieved of direct care responsibilities and joined the IT technical staff to design a system that would promote safe and efficient patient care. Focus is given in the presentation to the objectives set forth by the Clinical Information System project: promote patient safety and satisfaction, provide efficient care, and facilitate the recruitment and retention of talented individuals. The leadership of the Chief Nurse and Medical Officers is highlighted to show how the team was empowered to make decisions. Their leadership along with that of the chief operating, information, pharmacy, and financial officers provided executive sponsorship to facilitate and support interdisciplinary collaboration. Utilization of the staff empowerment model and the nursing executive council for decision making, policy and practice changes contributed to the successful transformation. Nursing leadership visibility and support was evident at every milestone met by the project team. Interdisciplinary forums provided opportunity for knowledge sharing, respect and awareness of individual practices. Patient care excellence has been demonstrated since the first phase of the EMR implementation in that: time from order entry to the patient receiving a medication has been halved from pre-implementation status; pre-built medication and ordering sentences based upon evidence to drive practice; patients identified as "at risk" based upon nursing assessments tools, are now...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
