(Como, 2007)

Summary of Literature Parish Nurses - (Burkhardt, 2009) EHR provides an opportunity to collect and aggregate data related to the spiritual dimension of care and link spiritual care to health outcomes. - Use standardized terminology and data collected by check-off lists/drop down boxes which are reliable, valid and measurable. - To measure the impact of a spiritual care intervention, researchers can be consulted to design databases - CEOs have no info related to spiritual care or its impact on health outcomes beyond anecdotal evidence. Summary of Literature U.S. Chaplains (Goldstein, 2011) 43/44 hospitals, chaplains have access to the EHR (McCarty, 2011) Use EHR to promote better care by highlighting our work

How best to use the EHR to maximize our impact with the larger team? Content: balance substance with brevity EHR communicates with the team why spiritual care is important to the patients overall treatment plan (Peery, 2008), EHR reflects value for our work as chaplains Helps us communicate more clearly with rest of the team. As they better understand what we do they appreciate and utilize our services more effectively Summary of Literature U.S. Chaplains Handzos (2011) proposed electronic charting template:

www.fluidsurveys.com One electronic survey question What was helpful about the spiritual care assessments on vOacis? - Common location to be informed that a pts needs were being met - Provided useful information about the patients spiritual values and emotional state - More thorough and useful - Answered questions that I had, more in-depth information of what the patient needs. Allowed me to formulate nursing interventions. TOH Chaplains focus group Question 1: What do you like about our practice of posting our spiritual care assessment on vOacis?

- increased exposure and understanding of Spiritual Care - expands readership of assessments, more accessible - education about what we do is key - triggered more consults - provides access to previous notes when pt is readmitted - continuity of care has improved between chaplains - a quality improvement project TOH Chaplains focus group - assessments are patient-centered and interprofessional colleague centered - legible, faster, portable, thoughtful - more efficient and effective care - more customized care - standardized assessment increases predictability and standardization of care - while on vOacis, I inform myself about the patients medical background

TOH Chaplains focus group Question 2: What benefits do you think electronic charting brings to your personal practice as a chaplain/priest, our SCS dept, and TOH? Helps to professionalize chaplains Improved communication with staff ie: priest has already come in to do SOS All positive feedback from staff Questions regarding research Do we want to capture spiritual care data in a format that allows for data extraction and outcome research? Do we want to capture data on the impact of spiritual care? By measuring spiritual distress at Time 1 and Time 2?

Do we want to partner with nurses or other hcps in research that links spiritual health to overall health outcomes? Conclusions on electronic charting A work in progress A way to communicate with the team that spiritual care is important to the patients overall treatment plan As we educate others on the value of our work and the readership increases, our services will be used more effectively.
