Select two diverse clinical settings; for example: ED versus ICU, PeriOp versus Med-Surg, Pediatrics versus Adults, or Sports Medicine vs. Nursing Home, etc. For your two selected clinical settings, compare and contrast the content, features, need, and value of data, information, knowledge, and decision support to clinical practitioners in those settings.
Justify the clinical elements necessary for each clinical setting and create a recommendation of necessary elements for a shared clinical system.
Make sure that you include the four expanding rings of information (EMR, warehouse, regional, NHIN/PHIN) in your analysis. Describe how the differences would alter the design or features of a clinical system. Support your statements where you claim either similarities or differences between your two settings.
Construct a justification for the shared clinical system from ethical, legal, social, and public policy viewpoints. Formulate a plan for implementation and create the necessary workflow for a successful implementation. Evaluate the role of the master’s prepared informatics nurse after implementation.
Please submit one APA formatted paper between 1000 – 1500 words, not including the title and reference page. The assignment should have a minimum of two scholarly sources, in addition to the textbook.
