- What is one way you could become involved in designing, selecting, evaluating, or implementing an information system in your workplace?
One of the best ways to become involved is to mention when you find a glitch in a new (or older) system. When my unit first implemented the use of the medication scanning system, we had many problems with our narcotic and sedative drips. These were usually continuously running drips; however, we would use these same continuous syringe drips for our break though pain or sedation boluses. The bar code on the syringe would only come up on the electronic MAR as a drip/infusion and we could not charge it or record it as a bolus dose. We now have a separate bar code for the syringe and one for the bolus given off of that particular syringe.
