#21 Rapid Rollout of EHRs: Insights into the nursing experience from a statewide study with Dr. Susan McBride and Dr. Mari Tietze
There is no turning back now! We are in the digital age and electronic health records (EHRs) are here to stay!
What is important now is looking at the results or outcomes of the rapid implementation of the EHRs. The lens we use to examine the outcomes can have serious implications for future strategies.
In this episode we talk with Dr. Susan McBride and Dr. Mary Tietze, two nurse informatics scholars from Texas who share our passion for health information technology and interprofessional practice.
The focus of our conversation today is the landmark, statewide study they conducted assessing the experience of nurses with the electronic health record in Texas.
This is powerful work resulted from the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) ACT and a key question, “What is going to happen to nursing?”
What they learned has informed strategies to improve nurse satisfaction and is influencing policy recommendations nationally. It also revealed the existence of the technology and practice platform polarity.
Join us as we learn about the results from this landmark study and discuss the significance of using a polarity lens.
