NR 361 Week 3 DQ 1 Opportunities for Improvement with Usability and Interoperability

Usability and interoperability are major issues to consider in the development of healthcare information systems (HIS). How does your organization address these issues? Does the transfer of information occur smoothly, or do you need to re-enter data from one application to the next—such as patient information from the emergency room that does not transfer—along with the patient who is admitted to the critical care unit? Or what happens when the patient is discharged and the home care nurses have to start from scratch as they prepare the patient’s plan of care?

 


NR 361 Week 3 DQ 2 Library Search for Telenursing Resources

This week’s lesson points out key concepts in searching the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed/MEDLINE database, the Chamberlain Library’s EBSCO/CINAHL database, and Google Scholar. This week’s lesson directs you to links and resources on the basics of searching these three information sources. The tutorials are very helpful. You are strongly urged to view them prior to posting.

Locate one article in each of the data sources to prepare your scholarly paper due during Week 4’s Telenursing: The Future Is Now. Briefly summarize each article in your post.
