Planned Change in a Department or Unit
Health care organizations are continuously immersed in change from the emergence of new policies, to promote quality care and improve patient safety to keeping pace with the rapid growth in knowledge and best practices. Establishing a solid framework for planning and implementing change is a wise move, as it provides a foundation for the extensive coordination that will be needed to successfully facilitate the change.
For this Assignment, you propose a change at the department or unit level and develop a plan for guiding the change effort: The change I would like you to discuss and plan is changing from paper charting that my intensive care unit is using to an Electronic health record (EHR). Paper charting is taking much our time away from the patient, medical errors occurs, nurses can�t have access to the charts all the time because it is used by other health care workers therefore delaying certain nursing intervention. Using EHR will be more beneficial for the unit. (Please check the benefits that offer EHR in a busy nursing unit).
