Roles that Nurses Performed
In the discussion preparation, you were asked to analyze the major professional roles played by physicians and nurses as they apply to physicians’ conduct in the medical arena and to nurses in the role of adjuncts to physicians. You were also asked to evaluate the degree and quality of care that physicians, nurses, and medical technologists provide in their primary roles, including, but not limited to, patient safety and satisfaction as required in 21st-century U.S. hospitals. Provide your evaluation and analysis in the discussion.
With electronic medical records now available, we have tremendous access to large amounts of health care data. Hypothesize two ways today’s health care informatics can improve health care decision-making and the quality of health care delivery. When and where have we been able to improve health care decision-making and care quality? Justify your response by finding a scholarly (peer-reviewed) article from the library that supports your hypothesis and provide examples.
