"The failure to recognize and respond to actionable clinical alarms... in a timely manner" was the second highest-ranked patient safety risk identified in the ECRI Institute's Top 10 Health Technology Hazards for 2016.
Clinical alarm reduction and prioritization require both technology and interdisciplinary leadership.

Each year, the National Quality Forum (NQF) convenes the Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) to review standardized performance measures that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is considering for use in 16 federal health programs. These measures are a critical building block for national pay-for-performance and public reporting programs, which affect 55 million Americans enrolled in Medicare and their healthcare providers.

The National Quality Forum’s Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) pre-rulemaking public comment period is open through January 12, 2016, at 6:00pm ET.

Barbara J. Drew, a professor of medicine with a Ph.D in nursing at the University of California San Francisco, says hospitals and device makers err on the side of recording every potentially relevant type of data. Monitors are so sensitive that they can sound an alarm when a patient moves in bed, for example. A study of more than 2 million alarms in five UCSF adult intensive care units over a one-month period, published in 2014 in the journal Plos One, included 12,671 alarms for heart arrhythmias serious enough to require nurses to drop everything and run to the bedside. But 88.8% of those were false alarms, and only 17 patients had a true cardiac arrest, Dr. Drew says.
When patients’ heart rate, oxygen and other indicators beep falsely so often, nurses and doctors can get ‘alarm fatigue’ and miss real warnings.

Introduction
Nursing Informatics
This page shares information that is relevant to informatic nurses. It is not limited to Information Technology since nurses play an instrumental role in patient safety, change management and usability of systems as evidenced by their impact on quality outcomes, workflow redesign and user acceptance.  These areas highlight the value of informatics nurses- their expertise translates to the adoption of more effective, higher quality clinical applications with healthcare delivery systems.
