Journal Article

As part of a larger project, a nurse-managed primary care clinic (Valencia Pediatric and Family Practice) sought to implement a nursing information system for the purposes of (1) patient record keeping, (2) capturing advanced practice nursing interventions and outcomes and transforming them into standardized language, (3) project data management, and (4) evaluating advanced practice nursing care thereby improving and standardizing quality of care. This article represents the background information for selection of a data management system and early experiences of implementation.
