Nurses’ Responsibilities in the Implementation of Information Systems

Part of the Health Informatics book series (HI)


The influence of nursing on the decision-making process of selecting healthcare information systems (HISs) is increasing. Systems planning and implementation are based not only on the capabilities of information technology but also on forces in the environment that impact health care. Computer decisions in the 1970s were primarily financially oriented. Hospitals saw the need to automate their patient billing process and other key systems, such as general ledger and accounts payable. Advanced technology led to increased sophistication of hardware and software capabilities, and concurrently the information needs of the hospital increased. More extensive reporting requirements, as well as the need for management reporting on productivity, became the norm.
