Nurses are key players in almost every area of the hospital and influence multiple points along the care continuum. A 2017 report suggests that nurses are not only responsible for ensuring positive clinical outcomes, but also have quantifiable influence in the areas of finance, quality of care, and clinical team engagement.
Considering all the added pressures placed on nurses along with the fluidity of their core practices, the science of nursing is one of constant switching between tasks. During some of the more routine tasks of nursing, like creating plans of care, nurses are often taken away from the area they are needed most – the patient bedside. To reduce the amount of time on screens so nurses can concentrate on providing compassionate bedside care, they need care planning tools that provide efficiency and flexibility.
The following infographic illustrates how a clinician focused EHR can help nurses effectively create and manage plans of care, so they are spending less time chained to a computer screen.
