In the decade since the federal government’s electronic health record (EHR) initiatives first became law, nearly all U.S. hospitals have adopted some form of EHR technology. Now, focus is on how a comprehensive EHR can enhance outcomes. Yet, little is known about the sociotechnical factors that can shape the relationship between advanced EHR adoption and quality of care.
Penn Nursing’s Mary Ersek, PhD, RN, FPCN, the Killebrew-Censits Chair in Undergraduate Education and Professor of Palliative Care, will be honored by Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) for her contributions to the nursing profession during the 30th International Nursing Research Congress in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in July.
All the honorees will be recognized during the Student-Alumni-Faculty Awards Ceremony on Friday, May 17, at 4:00 pm in the Ann L. Roy Auditorium of Fagin Hall.
