I have been in Nursing Informatics since 1996
initially utilizing point of service documentation tools and computerized clinical applications as a Home Health Case Manager and most recently as the Informatics
Coordinator for a small Home Health agency.
Project implementation and user training are
two of the things that helped respark my Nursing career. I have not had this much fun since I administered my first transfusion via a Port-a-cath. Anyway, my
position has been eliminated and its been
really slow going finding another position. Nurses have got to be involved in the development of health care information systems as we are the primary clinicians who will be utilizing them. The computer is just
another tool to improve practice.
Well its been 7 months since I originally
posted the above message. Recently I secured a fantastic position in acute care as a Clinical Applications Specialist! I love my job and the technological tools that allow me to improve patient care and nursing practice! I am now involved in cutting edge
technology and the implementation of an interprise wide EMR (Electronic Medical Record). Take A Look !!!!!!!! http://healthcare.monster.com/qanda/lewis
