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, e.g., patient information from the emergency room does not transfer along with the patient who is admitted to the critical care unit? Or, the patient is discharged and the home care nurses have to “start from scratch” as they prepare the patient’s plan of care.
Library Search for Telenursing Resources (graded)
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. The lesson this week 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, Telenursing…Is It in Your Future? Briefly summarize each article in your post.
