Feature Article

The American Nurses Association mandates nursing informaticists to evaluate clinical system implementation processes. When implementing electronic documentation systems, the use of an evaluation tool aids in the identification of end-user concerns and recommendations, which leads to process improvement. At two community hospitals in South Florida, a Clinical Information System Implementation Evaluation Scale was used to evaluate nursing perceptions during the implementation of a new pediatric electronic documentation system (eDocumentation). The goals were to identify barriers and resistance, as well as opportunities to improve the implementation process, and thus gain acceptance among end users.
