Use of content management systems to address nursing workflow.

ABSTRACT: Nurses are at the forefront of providing healthcare services to individuals of all age groups and with varying medical conditions. Aside from the critical knowledge and technical skills from nursing science, advancement in technology has assisted nurses in delivering quality nursing care by streamlining workflow processes and ensuring that data can easily be retrieved or modified. Electronic health records dramatically changed the landscape of the healthcare practice by providing an electronic means to store data and for healthcare professionals to retrieve and manipulate health information in a secured and collaborative environment. But with the nature of data being stored in the electronic health records, nurses still need to organize and process these data into relevant information, knowledge or wisdom so they can provide better holistic care to patients. This discussion paper details the role of content management systems in addressing nursing workflow by providing a mechanism for nurses to be developers themselves, and not just users or consumers of health innovative technologies. By using content management systems as platform for application development, nurses or other healthcare professionals, may be able to address problems with internal workflow without having to incur huge amounts in software development, or having to extensively learn programming languages.
