The purpose of the Informatics Solution Proposal is to increase knowledge and ability with informatics and technology products for the health care workplace setting. You will review the functionality of various products and select one that best meets the needs of a health care setting.
During this project, spanning Weeks 2-5, you will identify a clinical or administrative issue and propose an informatics solution. Please review Chapter 8 for more information on clinical and administrative issues.
Please review assignments for this proposal from week 2-5 because you will have to be able to support your proposal in later weeks with ACTUAL products that are currently available. Each week, you will work on an element of this project and submit your assignment for that week. In Week 5, you will synthesize your work into a proposal appropriate for the directors of a health care organization.
Identify an issue in a health care workplace that could be resolved by implementing an informatics or technology solution. The issue can be an administrative issue or a clinical issue. Again please review Chapter 8.
Draft a 350-word memo to a nursing administrator, informing them of the clinical or administrative problem, why it is a concern, and a request for permission to propose a solution. Support your letter with at least three peer-reviewed resources.
Format the memo according to APA guidelines for formal business correspondence. BusinessMemo.pdf
Provide an APA-formatted reference page for all resources used.
For week two, the assignment refers to administrative issues or a clinical issues. Please review Chapter 8 for more information. Please review assignments for this proposal from week 3-5 because you will have to be able to support your proposal in later weeks with ACTUAL products that are currently available. You can use product websites for your information. If you are not sure what do to, stick to comparing problems where there are lots of options: 2 EHRs or 2 Bar Code Scanners or 2 Staffing Modules This is NOT the actual proposal, this is the identification of the issue and permission to explore solutions.
