With the continuously changing landscape of healthcare services, medical workers need to learn to implement informatics technologies into practice. Typically, to alleviate data transfer, clinicians started to exchange information via mobile platforms, and nursing informaticists have a critical technical role in this process (Tyler, 2019). This profession must be at the forefront of each hospital since modern technologies occupied medicine with the aim to improve the well-being outcomes.
In my practice, I was assisted by the nursing informaticists multiple times since the organization I work for is currently establishing telehealth technologies. With all this confusion about new online platforms, informaticists are being overwhelmingly helpful. Once I had trouble accessing patients’ prescriptions made by another doctor, the informaticists offered their assistance.
Undoubtedly, interaction strategies between regular medical workers and nurses dealing with informatics can be improved. Primarily, nursing informaticists may contribute to the reduction of medical errors in the healthcare facility since they bring enormous financial costs. By combining staff training and improved practice methods, there is a significant chance that hospitals and clinics will limit patient risks and medical errors associated costs (Sipes, 2016). Moreover, by assigning one nurse informaticist to a team of doctors, it is possible to trace the interventions’ health trends and results.
The profession of a nurse-informaticist is rapidly evolving, offering prosperous opportunities to improve the health of patients. New technologies in the field of health delivery are supposed to facilitate medical workers’ duties, develop better communication between clients and staff, and ameliorate well-being outcomes (Pronsawatchai et al., 2018). Therefore, such professionals must train their colleagues, create unique programs for them, check their knowledge in order to manage communication and eradicate difficulties. Such a complex approach towards solving patients’ problems will be beneficial since it presumes influencing both parties’ outcomes.
