The nursing shared governance clinical informatics and technology council identified that nursing admission documentation was particularly cumbersome and time consuming. The group established four guiding principles used to judge if the assessment field added value. The review resulted in a six percent reduction in the number of fields. Future activities will apply the guiding principles to other documentation sections alleviating additional documentation burden.
