Abstract

By incorporating a clinical information system in the education curriculum as a teaching platform, the University of Kansas School of Nursing teaches nurses and other health professional students how to assess, plan, document and manage care in an electronic medium that develops healthcare informatics competencies. The outcomes of this integrated technology curriculum brings hope for transforming health professional education for 21st century practice and graduating a workforce with the leadership and competencies for improving quality and safety in patient care. It results in IT savvy healthcare providers who will cross the quality chasm.
