In the media introduction to this
module, it was suggested that you as a nurse have an important role in
the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). With a focus on patient care
and outcomes, nurses may not always see themselves as contributors to
the development of new systems. However, as you may have observed in
your own experience, exclusion of nurse contributions when implementing
systems can have dire consequences.
In this Discussion, you will consider the role you might play in
systems development and the ramifications of not being an active
participant in systems development.
- Review the steps of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) as presented in the Resources.
- Reflect on your own healthcare organization and consider
any steps your healthcare organization goes through when purchasing and
implementing a new health information technology system.
- Consider what a nurse might contribute to decisions made
at each stage of the SDLC when planning for new health information
- Post a description of what you believe to be the
consequences of a healthcare organization not involving nurses in each
stage of the SDLC when purchasing and implementing a new health
information technology system. Provide specific examples of potential
issues at each stage of the SDLC and explain how the inclusion of nurses
may help address these issues. Then, explain whether you had any input
in the selection and planning of new health information technology
systems in your nursing practice or healthcare organization and explain
potential impacts of being included or not in the decision-making
process. Be specific and provide examples.
