Assignment: The Impact of Nursing Informatics on Patient Outcomes and
Patient Care Efficiencies
In the Discussion for this module, you considered the interaction of nurse informaticists with other
specialists to ensure successful care. How is that success determined?
Patient outcomes and the fulfillment of care goals is one of the major ways that healthcare success is
measured. Measuring patient outcomes results in the generation of data that can be used to improve
results. Nursing informatics can have a significant part in this process and can help to improve outcomes
by improving processes, identifying at-risk patients, and enhancing efficiency.
Review the concepts of technology application as presented in the Resources.
Reflect on how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence may help fortify nursing
informatics as a specialty by leading to increased impact on patient outcomes or patient care
The Assignment: (4-5 pages not including the title and reference page)
In a 4- to 5-page project proposal written to the leadership of your healthcare organization, propose a
nursing informatics project for your organization that you advocate to improve patient outcomes or
patient-care efficiency. Your project proposal should include the following:
Describe the project you propose.
Identify the stakeholders impacted by this project.
Explain the patient outcome(s) or patient-care efficiencies this project is aimed at improving and
explain how this improvement would occur. Be specific and provide examples.
Identify the technologies required to implement this project and explain why.
