Describe any areas where improvements could occur and propose changes that could bring about these improvements in the workflow.

Write a 3- to 5-page paper which includes the following: (3-5 does not include the title page, reference page or your diagram). All parts of this assignment must be completed in one document. Email assignments will not be accepted.
Create a simple flowchart of the activity you selected. Please place this flowchart at the END of your paper, after the reference page and provide a heading. (Review the Sample Workflow of Answering a Telephone in an Office document found in this week’s Learning Resources for an example.This is an example only and not one you should use). This work flow diagram should reflect graduate level work.
Next, in your paper:
introduction- Purpose statement
Explain the process you have diagramming
For each step or decision point in the process, identify the following: (PLEASE USE A heading for each of the following requirements: Do not skip any elements)
Who does this step? (It can be several people.)
What technology is used?
Describe the metric that is currently used to measure the soundness of the workflow. Is it effective?
Describe any areas where improvements could occur and propose changes that could bring about these improvements in the workflow.
Summarize why it is important to be aware of the flow of an activity.
Remember to include a cover page, introduction, and summary for your paper.
Nurses working in the recovery room at City Hospital received many complaints from patients who were required to void prior to being released. The nurses also questioned this requirement and decided to explore current best practices based on research evidence. Using the hospital’s health information technology, they located current research indicating that City Hospital’s policy was out of date and that research evidence no longer supported this practice. As a result of accessing and utilizing health information technology to locate evidence-based research, new practice guidelines were crafted and adopted.
This week you evaluate evidence available through health information technology and consider how health information technology supports evidence-based practice

This article presents a study that evaluated the role of health information technology (HIT) in the Department of Veteran Affairs’ Quality Enhancement Research Initiative. The authors convey their findings on how HIT provided data and information to aid implementation research, and how implementation research helped further HIT development. Additionally, the text details methods of overcoming common HIT barriers to implementation research.
