Information technology from novice to expert: implementation implications.
J Nurs Manag. 2008 Sep; 16(6):692-9.JN

Abstract

AIMS

This paper explores how the Novice-to-Expert Nursing Practice framework can illuminate the challenges of and opportunities in implementing information technology (IT), such as clinical decision support systems (CDSS), in nursing practice.

BACKGROUND

IT implementation in health care is increasing; however, substantial costs and risks remain associated with these projects.

EVALUATION

The theoretical framework of Novice-to-Expert Nursing Practice was applied to current design and implementation literature for CDSS.

KEY ISSUES

Organizational policies and CDSS design affect implementation and user adoption.

CONCLUSIONS

Nursing CDSS can improve the overall quality of care when designed for the appropriate end-user group and based on a knowledge base reflecting nursing expertise.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING MANAGEMENT

Nurse administrators can positively influence CDSS function and end-user acceptance by participating in and facilitating staff nurse involvement in IT design, planning and implementation. Specific steps for nurse administrators and managers are included in this paper.
