Note. The goal of this assignment is to develop a process for a needs assessment in nursing. You are not required to complete the needs assessment.
Consider the following scenario:
The health care system you work for has decided to change from a manual documentation system to a new electronic health record (EHR) system. Nurses are being asked for their input to help the organization select the most appropriate product.
Write a 525- to 700-word paper describing how a needs assessment could provide relevant feedback to leadership. Address the following:
Explain how and why a needs assessment must be completed before a new EHR may be selected.
Describe some of the factors that need to be considered in the needs assessment.
Explain what data you want to collect and how or where you can access it.
Describe who you would consult and why.
Note. Do not include names; list only professional roles (such as Chief Nursing Officer).
Reference your course textbook (informatics and Nursing, fifth edition Jeanne Sewell/and Handbook of informatics for Nurses&Healthcare Professionals, fifth edition Hebda & Czar) and two additional peer-reviewed references, and develop an APA- formatted reference page.
