Lilly, Kezia D.; Eldridge, Carole

Collapse Box


ABSTRACT: Nurses and nurse practitioners are facing the rapid growth of technology in clinical practice, much of it mandated by the U.S. federal government. Although there are quality, efficiency, and financial incentives for learning and using the new technology, many nurses and nurse practitioners find the changes daunting. Clinicians and providers can increase their comfort with and use of health information technology by familiarizing themselves with the options, purposes, required competencies, and intended outcomes of the various forms of healthcare informatics in use today. Learning more about healthcare informatics will enable dermatology nurses to access the many advantages of technology to improve patient care.
