Electronic Plans of Care

  1. I work for a hospital that is moving from one outdated electronic documentation system to a new vendor. We are looking for feedback/recommendations/lessons learned from sites who have implemented Evidence-Based Plans of Care in their electronic documentation system.

    Specifically: (1) Are your care plans nursing-only, or interdisciplinary; (2) Do you have a team on-site that reviews the evidence and constructs their own plans of care, or do you use vendor-supplied content; (3) are your plans of care integrated closely with your orders, alerts, and other nursing documentation, and (4) what was the process you employed to implement the electronic plans of care and make them useable/acceptable for your staff?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.
