NURS 6451 - Evaluation Methods for Health Information Technology


(5 cr.)
Healthcare policy, including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (2009) and Meaningful Use demand that electronic documentation systems are interoperable, integrated, and effective. In this course, students explore the history, process, and methodology in evaluation of healthcare informatics. Through discussion of real-world practice that includes public health and community-based settings, students evaluate the impact of the implementation of information technology throughout the organization. Students create a plan for systems evaluation. Through individual applications, they build skills and confidence that support collaborative, interdisciplinary system evaluation plans to improve the effectiveness of care.
