Potential of decision support in preventing pressure ulcers in hospitals.
The development of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers signals low quality of care. To meet the challenges of consistently translating best practices into effective clinical practices and promote effective teamwork communication and interprofessional collaboration, the authors consider the failure of consistent care delivery as loss of information and reveal the opportunities of informatics methods to reinforce information delivery, evidenced by typical cases. They then explain and summarize information-related issues existing at the initial assessment upon hospital admission, routine treatments, and team communication.
