NURS503-Scholarly Application Paper


Scholarly Application Paper 

In this scholarly paper, synthesize and apply the content and knowledge gained in prior weeks and from your discussion posts.  As a graduate nurse, you have advanced knowledge as a leader, educator, or nurse practitioner to understand the informatics and health information technology competencies necessary to promote best practices in HIT, population health outcomes, and support healthcare performance.  

Identify an initiative where informatics, information, and communication technologies can improve healthcare quality or population health outcomes. This can be any technology, from EHR, clinical decision support (CDS), telehealth, POC technology, or emerging technology, where you can use your knowledge to implement an innovative quality improvement to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce health inequities.


Introduction (1-2 paragraphs) 

· Briefly outline the Background of the initiative and the purpose of the paper
