RN Complex Care Management

*Nursing informatics to ensure that the fingerprint of nursing is well documented so that we can say without a doubt what the nurses impact is on health outcomes. This data will better inform the role definitions and workflow within the team, and promote IPE among all members of the team as each learns to trust in the model of care and the training & capabilities of each other team member*how to use data in their every day tasksand put it at their fingertips---and ensure it is actionable*hospitals, urgent care centers, housing, food banks and other community agencies

*We need to be careful as we design new workflows, and evaluate progress that we keep in mind every team member and ensure that nurses practice at the top of their license, so there should be focus on other team members and their roles in order to ensure that the nursing aspects of CC continue to be nursing practice by its full definition. As we expand their responsibilities evaluating staffing rolls and ratios to accomplish the work.24Reason for Complex Care Management
