Walden University - NURS 6051 discussion 6 : Discussion - The Inclusion of Nurses in the Systems Development Life Cycle (Latest Guide) 2019
Discussion: The Inclusion of Nurses in the Systems Development Life Cycle
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 technology.
By Day 3 of Week 9
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.
By Day 6 of Week 9
Respond to at least two of your colleagues* on two different days, by offering additional thoughts regarding the examples shared, SDLC-related issues, and ideas on how the inclusion of nurses might have impacted the example described by your colleagues.

The Role of the Nurse Informaticist in Systems Development and Implementation
NURS 6051 Transforming Nursing and Healthcare Through Technology
As a nurse manager in an organization where a new documentation system is going to be implemented, a good plan and a good team are necessary for the systems development life cycle (SDLC) to be completed successfully. Having a nurse leader on the development team would prove beneficial for the organization as nurses spend the majority of their time utilizing the systems and nurses make up the majority of the health care professionals. The SDLC is similar to the nursing process, in which the nurse must assess, diagnose, plan, implement, evaluate, and revise (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2017).

Transforming Nursing and Healthcare through Technology
As a professional nurse, you are expected to apply your expertise to patient care. On
occasion, you will also be expected to share that expertise.
With evolving technology and continuous changes to regulations designed to keep up
these changes, there is usually a need to share information and expertise to inform
colleagues, leadership, patients, and other stakeholders.
In this Assignment, you will study a recent nursing informatics-related healthcare policy,
and you will share the relevant details via a fact sheet designed to inform and educate.
Review the Resources on healthcare policy and regulatory/legislative topics related to
health and nursing informatics.
Consider the role of the nurse informaticist in relation to a healthcare organization’s
compliance with various policies and regulations, such as the Medicare Access and
CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
Research and select one health or nursing informatics policy (within the past 5 years) or
regulation for further study.
The Assignment: (1 page)
Create a 1-page fact sheet that your healthcare organization could hypothetically use to
explain the health or nursing informatics policy/regulation you selected. Your fact sheet
should address the following:
Briefly and generally explain the policy or regulation you selected.
Address the impact of the policy or regulation you selected on system implementation.
Address the impact of the policy or regulation you selected on clinical care,
patient/provider interactions, and workflow.
Highlight organizational policies and procedures that are/will be in place at your
healthcare organization to address the policy or regulation you selected. Be specific.
