NURS 6421 - Supporting Workflow in Healthcare Systems


(5 cr.)
Nurses are at the center of care coordination for patients, and informatics nurses are central to the design and development of information systems that support workflow in nursing practice. This course examines the analysis, design, development, and implementation of electronic information systems in health care. Students compare, contrast, and critique methods of system design. Course assignments focus on workflow modeling in systems design, including assessment of current-state workflow and design of future-state workflow. Through this course, students have the opportunity to apply workflow design best practices to support the implementation and optimization of electronic health records.
