Abstract

The design and implementation of health information systems (HISs) in team-based settings is complex owing to the multiple users with different perspectives who interact with the system. We argue that such perspectives must be understood prior to designing and implementing HISs. One specific type of team-based model is a nursing care model. In such a model, care is provided through an interdisciplinary team that is lead by the nursing staff. We analyze a nursing-based model of care according to the context of the organization, clinical unit, and individual as defined by the Contextual Implementation Model [1]. We then discuss how the nursing model will be affected by automation using different HISs.
