Abstract:

The quality of inter-professional team documentation, when documenting on paper, has consistently failed to meet the recommended standards because of ineligible handwriting, which leads to wrong information recorded in patients’ charts, and incomplete health histories.  When developing a comprehensive electronic medical record system to serve an orthopedic office, this requires significant time, open and honest communication, dedication from each member of the team, and resources.  In an orthopedic office setting, an inter-professional team was formed to develop and evaluate a request for proposal for an electronic health record system, compared to the current documentation process influences a decision for a new electronic documentation system within a three-month period.  The literature review identified evidence that supported the use of a request for proposal (RFP) when fulfilling an informatics system/electronic medical record (IS/EMR).  Research also supported the utilization of the inter-professional team to build an effective request for proposal.  The model used in this project was the Schwirian informatics model.  This model enables identification of significant informational needs that can foster gaps in knowledge for nursing practice.  The request for proposal allowed the office to develop, and distribute the proposal to three informatics systems and compare these systems to select the most useful system for their practice.  The orthopedic office was able to choose the right electronic medical record system.  Developing the inter-professional team and completing the request for proposal made this project successful.
