Directions: make sure scholars article are within 4 years
Discussions are designed to promote dialogue between faculty and students, and students and their peers. In discussions students:
Demonstrate understanding of concepts for the week
Integrate outside scholarly sources when required
Engage in meaningful dialogue with classmates and/or instructor
Express opinions clearly and logically, in a professional manner
Use the rubric on this page as you compose your answers.
Best Practices include:
Participation early in the week is encouraged to stimulate meaningful discussion among classmates and instructor.
Enter the discussion often during the week to read and learn from posts.
Select different classmates for your reply each week.
Standardized Terminology and Language in Informatics is an important part of healthcare. Nurses and healthcare workers need to understand and be able to communicate clearly.
Please select one of the following options and discuss your understanding of the role in healthcare and its potential impact on your practice. the option I choose is USABILITY ***
Remember that Week 3 will cover the following Course Outcomes:
CO 3: Define standardized terminology that reflects nursing’s unique contribution to patient outcomes (PO 3).
CO 8: Discuss the value of best evidence as a driving force to institute change in delivery of nursing care (PO 8).
In this era of pay for performance nursing is at the front line especially with documentation using standardized language and the incorporation of evidence-based practice guidelines with the aim of improving the quality, efficiency, and overall value of health care. Over time, the guidelines and effect on reimbursement has grown tremendously.
Define standardized terminology that reflects nursing’s unique contribution to patient outcomes
The standardized terminology that reflects the services that the nurses offer is health informatics. Relying on this helps physicians come up with data-driven solutions for the patients. They do this by using the information on the information systems, healthcare knowledge to collect, gather, interpret and manage patient data after offering care services to the patients (Pearson, 2021).
Discuss the value of best evidence as a driving force to institute change in the delivery of nursing care
For patient care to be effective, the nurses should always receive any new medical protocol, and the Evidence-Based Practice helps them acquire this information. Nurses, through best evidence they learn how effective a diagnostic treatment is and the risks that the tests may have on patients. This strategy includes patients in the care plan of the nurses because it focuses on offering effective health care services as they use the available evidence on the kind of treatment they should offer (Annappa et al.,2021).
Discuss usability, integration, and interoperability
Interoperability is where the systems can interpret, share in the form in which they receive it. Through this concept, the original context of information is available. Integration is where different applications are connected so that one access information from the other. Integration involves a middleware that acts as a third party that helps translate data and enables its effectiveness in the systems. They differ in that interoperability does not use a middleware. Usability is whereby the above-used systems in sharing information are helpful and that they should satisfy the users and help them achieve their intended goals (Pearson, 2021).
Discuss the need for standardized terminology, languages, and classification
Standardized language and terminology establish national and international communication in nursing care. Through these terminologies, nurses learn of any interventions that may help offer nursing care services because they may not currently be available in their areas (Annappa et al., 2021).
Relate reimbursement issues surrounding the provision of nursing care
In the provision of nursing care, reimbursement is critical that enables nursing practitioners to establish independent practices. With this issue, each independent practice receives less reimbursement (Pearson, 2021). It considers the cost of treatment and the ability to contain the costs. Reimbursements are only earned by the nursing practitioners who offer high-quality services at low charges compared with the benchmark data.
Identify critical thinking involved in selecting the best information to inform decision-making
Critical thinking enables nurses and health workers to analyze information deliberately to come up with the best decisions. It involves creativity, logic, and reasoning to understand concepts perfectly before coming up with a conclusion, making the best conclusions.
The standardized terminologies are comprehensive and research-based in the aspects of the nursing-sensitive patient outcomes and the interventions. A taxonomy defines different nursing terms; hence, the healthcare discipline uses an electronic documentation system for reference (Pearson, 2021).
Week 3 Discussion: Standardized Terminology and Language in Informatics
Standardized language and terminology establish national and international communication in nursing care. Through these terminologies, nurses learn of any interventions that may help offer nursing care services because they may not currently be available in their areas (Pearson, 2021).
