Informatics nursing practice is a technology that supports all dimensions of Care Coordination Transition Management (CCTM). The use of health information technology (HIT) is essential for safe care of patients in all health care settings and streamlines processes of coordinating care as patients transfer between different locations or levels of care. A discussion of the importance of using nationally recognized standardized terminologies across settings will be presented as will the integration of the knowledge, skills and attitudes between the RN-CCTM Model and informatics nursing practice.
Purpose: The purpose of this chapter is to enable the reader to demonstrate the elements of competency in informatics nursing practice that are required for the registered nurse (RN) in Care Coordination and Transition Management (CCTM) role. Specific learning outcomes and objectives have been identified for each competency.
