Computerised care plans: provoking a quiet revolution.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The Illawarra Area Health Service has been experimenting with use of computerised nursing care plans. Microcomputer software has been successfully tested in several wards and the intention is to move to implementation which will probably involve porting the software to the area-wide mainframe. The technology was recently extended to multidisciplinary care planning using the managed care/critical pathways approach. This paper describes the development process and some of the initial results.
