Nursing Care Delivery StructureThe Nursing Care Delivery Structure considers nurse-patient assignment structures, criteria-based assignment processes and information management tools. Nursing care delivery models are by inpatient and ambulatory settings based on the patient profiles and complexity of care requirements.
Patient Information Management and Decision Support SystemsInformation management tools developed within the electronic health record environment include best practice alerts and evidence-based, standard-congruent care plan templates for commonly seen patients, which may be individualized and patient-centered. The electronic health record is used across the inpatient and ambulatory settings, including specialty areas, such as obstetrics, emergency center, and the operating room.
Nursing Quality and Outcomes ManagementNursing quality and outcome structures lay the foundation for an effective care delivery system. Dedicated to quality patient care and outcomes, Harris Health Nursing participates in the national database on Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI), which assists staff in measuring nurse-sensitive indicators and comparing outcomes to benchmark data from other facilities across the United States.
