Just wondering if anyone is currently working in a role that is focused on clinical analytics, decision-support or similar type of position? Our nursing association is looking for justification that such roles leverage nursing expertise and that as such constitute "nursing practice". I have a colleague looking for comparable practice roles; she would be interested in discussing further if possible.
Thanks in advance for any contacts.
I am not currently in this role, but in a previous role as an Application Coordinator, one of my roles was to get data extracted, manipulated and presented. This data was instrumental in changes to workflows and processes within the Operating Room. My nursing knowledge was absolutely needed to understand the significance of the data in front of me. I did have IT working with me to help extract the data from the system, but without my knowledge they would not have known what or how to extract that data. Sorry I am a little late on a response, but hope this helps.
