Nursing documentation usage analysis.

Robertson C, Efthimiadis EN, Hammond KW. Nursing documentation usage analysis. AMIA ... Annual Symposium proceedings / AMIA Symposium. AMIA Symposium. 2008 Nov 6; 1112.


This project investigated the use of electronic patient documentation in the work context of VA nurses, guided by cognitive work analysis methodology. Prominent themes in nursing workflow and documentation usage identifed in previous research were summarized and presented in detail to a focus group of practicing nurses. The group validated a need for integrated access to order, prescription and document information. A wire frame solution was developed and presented in a second group meeting for evaluation and feedback.
