Information, Integration and Communication
As the use of informatics continues to increase in nursing practice, it is important for nurses to understand how to use these types of technologies to input and decipher data as well as successfully and accurately share information regarding patient care. Reflect on your own experience using information technology, and then address the following:
• Would an integrated and/or interoperable computer-based information system improve the flow of critical information in your setting? Why?
• How important is information literacy to your practice in communicating information to other nurses, units, offices, or departments? Why?
Support your ideas or those of others with references from the professional nursing literature.
