Sustainment for A Super-User electronic health records system Training Project
Sustainment for A Super-User Training Project
To ensure that the informatics project is viable for a long time, it is important to ensure constant training for the end-users and providing them with real-time support. This is because nurses may lack experience with the new informatics project and thus it is important to constantly train users to ensure they have effectively mastered how to use the system. Similarly, technology systems are always getting updated with new features and thus regular retraining will ensure that nurses keep up with any introduced technology in the informatics project system (deRiel et al., 2018). It will be important to always engage users whenever a new electronic health application is being updated. Sustainment for A Super-User electronic health records system Training Project.
Secondly, it will be important to engage change champions who will continue advocating for and supporting the informatics project in the organization. The change champions will educate the staff members about the significance of accepting and supporting the implemented informatics project. This will not only get rid of any resistance to embracing the project but it will also ensure that staff members continue using the implemented electronic health records system (deRiel et al., 2018) Sustainment for A Super-User electronic health records system Training Project.
Lastly, policies that support the use of the implemented system should be developed. Policies should mandate the use of the informatics project system whenever necessary (Moucheraud et al., 2017). This will ensure that the system is adopted and dutifully used by the staff members, long after its implementation.
All these three actions will ensure the sustainability of the informatics project system long after its implementation.
