According to our textbook usability is a product that is used by a user in the correct situation to accomplish a set goal (p. 173). An example of this would be the product of a blood pressure cuff in Walmart that shoppers can stop at to check their blood pressures. Some issues that I have with usability and interoperability in using my health information system is that I have to continually enter the same data so that the system understands what I am trying to accomplish, there are many different places to go to achieve the exact same task and not all of our machines sync to the system such as our wound vacuums. According to our textbook the user wants the system to be effective, efficient, and satisfying (p. 174). According to the American Medical Association it takes awhile to implement a new improvement, but it is recommended to do so because every patient encounter and the physicians ability to proved quality care are affected by the usability of the healthcare system. One suggestion that I could make is to sync our wound vacuums to the Cerner system so that the wound vac. information is automatically loaded into the system, which would make the nurse more efficient and effective with her care and time.
