Nursing Care Delivery Structure
The Nursing Care Delivery Structure considers nurse-patient assignment structures, criteria-based assignment processes and information management tools. Assignment structures are based on the AACN Synergy Model’s patient profiles and nurse competencies. Nursing care delivery models are selected by inpatient and ambulatory settings based on the patient profiles and complexity of care requirements.
Patient Information Management and Decision Support Systems
Information 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.
Nursing Quality and Outcomes Management
Nursing 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 other facilities across the United States.
