Here, at Baptist Health, clinical informatics is crucial to combining the high tech and the high touch for better patient outcomes and safer clinical practice. 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.
As we continue the journey of optimizing the Cerner EHR, our overreaching goal is for nurses to spend less time on documentation and more time on direct patient care and education at the bedside. Continued innovation in our informatics practice is what will make this possible. We have a vision for the future of healthcare and a plan for getting there. If you believe in making decisions based on what is best for safe, quality patient care, Baptist Health could be the best place for you.
