#COEHITR Nancy Staggers - Wicked problems in Health IT - Care Coordination

 Nursing informatics and usability
Nancy Staggers, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, Professor, OSAH, School of Nursing, University of Maryland

The problems come between departments and specialties: Care Coordination.

Transitions in Care.

Typical problems - Nursing Summary Report.

No visual trend indications
Orders arbitrarily truncated
Missing information 
Static information
No grid of medications data across patients.

This note is carried with the nurse.

Support needed for team-based care.

Nurses want high level information on goals for the patient.

Need to be able to find critical data quickly.
