Assignment: Literature Review: The Use of Clinical System to Improve Outcomes and Efficiencies
Assignment: Literature Review: The Use of Clinical Systems to Improve
Outcomes and Efficiencies
New technology—and the application of existing technology—only appears in healthcare settings after
careful and significant research. The stakes are high, and new clinical systems need to offer evidence of
positive impact on outcomes or efficiencies.
Nurse informaticists and healthcare leaders formulate clinical system strategies. As these strategies are
often based on technology trends, informaticists and others have then benefited from consulting existing
research to inform their thinking.
In this Assignment, you will review existing research focused on the application of clinical systems. After
reviewing, you will summarize your findings.
Review the Resources and reflect on the impact of clinical systems on outcomes and efficiencies
within the context of nursing practice and healthcare delivery.
Conduct a search for recent (within the last 5 years) research focused on the application of
clinical systems. The research should provide evidence to support the use of one type of clinical
system to improve outcomes and/or efficiencies, such as “the use of personal health records or
portals to support patients newly diagnosed with diabetes.”
Identify and select 4 peer-reviewed research articles from your research.
For information about annotated bibliographies,
