8 pages written and 5 Powerpoint slides w/speaker notes information technology

8 pages for the analysis paper; a PPT with speak notes based on the paper which needs to be 5 minutes

owerpoint
The purpose of this assignment is to allow the student to demonstrate their ability to succinctly disseminate scholarly information as outlined in the Code of Ethics for Nurses, published by the American Nurses Association.
This assignment is due this unit (week 7). The student will complete and submit the PowerPoint presentation and slides based on the Workflow Analysis paper. The presentation should be approximately five (5) minutes in length. The power-point slides will be submitted and presented in a video.
Work Analysis Paper
The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your understanding of the various approaches that information technology can be used to support and improve processes of care, using the knowledge you have gained and your overall understanding of the course concepts. In essence, you will identify a process of care that requires a workflow, which you may be directly involved in or have observed at any clinical setting. This process could be paper-based or could already be integrated into the existing information system, but is not achieving its desired outcomes. The process could include anything from patient admission, discharge, transferal, a clinical visit, carrying out a protocol, clinical guideline, procedure, or an intervention, or receiving an order, etc. Provide a recommendation/solution using any form of information technology that could effectively address the problem and potentially improve overall health care quality.
Use the underlying concepts of workflow, task analysis, human factor/ergonomics, human-technology interface, and utility testing to analyze nurse workflow problem and provide an information technology recommendation/solution that would potentially improve the processes of care as well as related clinical and administrative outcomes. Review relevant literature and visit various websites provided.
Create a pictorial representation of the current workflow as it stands
Create your flowchart using Word
Use standards flowchart symbols and rules
This website provides useful tools for designing flowcharts:
Identify and list the key workflow problems (inefficiencies). Show these problem areas on the flowchart.

Identify the area of inefficiency in your practice and use a flow-chart to analyze the process. Show how it is carried out step-by-step. Include the standard symbols and rules for designing a flowchart, which you have learned in Unit 2. Use the underlying concepts of workflow, task analysis, human factor/ergonomics, human-technology interface, and utility testing to analyze nurse workflow problem and provide an information technology recommendation/solution that would potentially improve the processes of care as well as related clinical and administrative outcomes. Review relevant literature and visit various websites provided.

Analyze the clinical care process and how it is carried out step-by-step using a flowchart, including the standard symbols and rules for designing a flowchart. The process could include anything from patient admission, discharge, transferal, a clinical visit, carrying out a protocol, clinical guideline, procedure, or an intervention, or receiving an order, etc. The recommendation/solution could be any information technology that you have learned about during the course that could effectively address the problem and potentially improve overall health care quality.
1. Describe how information technology could address each of the workflow problems listed.
a. Identify the information technology
b. Describe how this information technology could potentially improve workflow and clinical or administrative outcomes (improve care efficiency and effectiveness)
c. Use the literature to support your solution (e.g. cite literature on how clinical decision support systems provide drug alerts and improve outcomes).

All reference literature is to be scholarly and published within the last five (5) years. Complete writing the paper and submit. Papers need to be in APA formatting. The completed paper is to be submitted during Unit 8 (week 8).
