There are many theoretical underpinnings of informatics, many of which are discussed in Chapter 17 of your textbook. These theories help us to understand the concepts behind information management, many of which healthcare professionals perform quite naturally without really thinking about it! One such construct is Nursing Informatics Theory, which involves the hierarchy of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. Review the section on Nursing Informatics Theory in p. 302-303 of Chapter 17, and then read the following case study: You are a nurse working in a busy community clinic. Jorge, a 68-year-old Hispanic male, is scheduled for a follow-up appointment with the nurse practitioner today to discuss his recent lab results. His pulse is 78, his respiration are 16, and his blood pressure is 145/92. He is 5’5” tall and weighs 250 lbs. During his last visit, he stated that he is unemployed, married with three adult children, and has no current medical conditions or past surgeries. His mother lives with him and is diabetic, and his father died of a heart attack at age 50.
