___________________________ aid in and strengthen the selection of viable options using the information of an
organization or a field to facilitate decision making and overall efficiency.
Standard Text:
Correct Answer: Decision support systems
Rationale : Decision support systems aid in and strengthen the selection of viable options using the information
of an organization or a field to facilitate decision making and overall efficiency. Decision support software
organizes information to fit new environments. It provides analysis and advice to support a choice. The final
decision rests with the practitioner.
Global Rationale:
Cognitive Level: Understanding
Client Need: Safe Effective Care Environment
Client Need Sub: Management of Care
Nursing/Integrated Concepts: Communication and Documentation
Learning Outcome:
Question 10
Type: FIB
____________________________ are large, computerized database management systems that support several
types of activities that may include provider order entry, result retrieval, documentation, and decision support
across distributed locations.
Standard Text:
Correct Answer: Clinical information systems
Rationale : Clinical information systems (CISs) are large, computerized database management systems that
support several types of activities that may include provider order entry, result retrieval, documentation, and
decision support across distributed locations.
Global Rationale:
Cognitive Level: Understanding
Client Need: Safe Effective Care Environment
Client Need Sub: Management of Care
Nursing/Integrated Concepts: Communication and Documentation
Learning Outcome:

A nursing information system should identify variances to the anticipated outcomes as they are charted and
provide aggregate variance data for analysis by the providers. This information can be used to fine tune and
improve _______________________________, thereby contributing to improved client outcomes.
Standard Text:
Correct Answer: critical pathways
Rationale : The system should identify variances to the anticipated outcomes as they are charted and provide
aggregate variance data for analysis by the providers. This information can be used to fine tune and improve the
critical pathways, thereby contributing to improved client outcomes. The critical pathway or protocol approach
to nursing documentation is an approach used in automated nursing information systems and it is often use in a
multidisciplinary manner, with many types of care providers accessing the system for information and to
document care.
Global Rationale:
Cognitive Level: Analyzing
Client Need: Safe Effective Care Environment
Client Need Sub: Management of Care
Nursing/Integrated Concepts: Communication and Documentation
Learning Outcome:
