Consider how standards, standardized data, and interoperability benefit the quality, safety, and costs of care.
View the video The Path to Interoperability from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.
Think about how standardized data that can be accessed from any location and on any device may benefit patients and your nursing practice.
Contemplate how the change to an IPL will impact nursing care plans and the use of standardized nursing languages such as NANDA, NIC, and NOC.
