First Edition won the AJN 2016 Book Of The Year Award.

A “must have” text for all healthcare professionals practicing in the digital age of healthcare.

Nursing Informatics for the Advanced Practice Nurse, Second Edition, delivers a practical array of tools and information to show how advanced practice nurses can maximize patient safety, quality of care, and cost savings through the use of technology. Since the first edition of this text, health information technology has only expanded. With increased capability and complexity, the current technology landscape presents new challenges and opportunities for interprofessional teams. Nurses, who are already trained to use the analytic process to assess, analyze, and intervene, are in a unique position to use this same process to lead teams in addressing healthcare delivery challenges with data.

The only informatics text written specifically for advanced practice nurses, Nursing Informatics for the Advanced Practice Nurse, Second Edition, takes an expansive, open, and innovative approach to thinking about technology. Every chapter is highly practical, filled with case studies and exercises that demonstrate how the content presented relates to the contemporary healthcare environment. Where applicable, concepts are aligned with the six domains within the Quality and Safety Education in Nursing (QSEN) approach and are tied to national goals and initiatives. Featuring chapters written by physicians, epidemiologists, engineers, dieticians, and health services researchers, the format of this text reflects its core principle that it takes a team to fully realize the benefit of technology for patients and healthcare consumers.

What’s New

  • Several chapters present new material to support teams’ optimization of electronic health records
  • Updated national standards and initiatives
  • Increased focus and new information on usability, interoperability and workflow redesign throughout, based on latest evidence
  • Explores challenges and solutions of electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs), a major initiative in healthcare informatics; Medicare and Medicaid Services use eCQMs to judge quality of care, and how dynamics change rapidly in today’s environment

Susan McBride, PhD, RN-BC, CPHIMS, FAAN,

is a clinical nursing informaticist at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. As a professor at Texas Tech, she teaches DNP courses, including statistics, informatics, epidemiology, and population health at the organizational and public policy level. She is also the director of the master’s and postmaster’s nursing informatics programs. Dr. McBride’s clinical expertise also includes perioperative and cardiovascular nursing, with a research focus on methods development for implementing, evaluating, and utilizing large health care datasets and health information technology (HIT) to improve patient safety and quality within the health care delivery system. She has developed and deployed software and services with executive oversight in the for-profit and not-for-profit arenas. Most recently, she supported operational activity and administrative oversight of the West Texas Health Information Technology Regional Extension Center (WTxHITREC) under the F. Marie Hall Institute for Rural and Community Health in a senior leadership role. Her focused activities include advising practices and hospitals on workflow redesign, clinical decision support, strategies to assist providers in meeting meaningful use of electronic health records (EHRs), quality measures, and analytics using certified EHR technology. Her current research involves an EHR-enhanced simulation program to develop best-practice competencies in the use of EHRs for interprofessional teams and evaluation of the use of social media initiatives in improving population health.
