Our organizational focus on quality is integral to the work being done in Informatics, with workflow-driven, computer-based training programs and live informatics classes available for all newly hired clinicians.
The ongoing transformation of clinical information systems makes this an especially exciting time for advancements in patient safety, workflow efficiency and point-of-care decision support. Baptist Health is experiencing a convergence of nursing science and information technology that will forever change the way we communicate – and utilize – data, information and knowledge.
