      The financial landscape of health care delivery is driven by large amounts of clinical and operational data. These data are able to measure the effectiveness, efficiency, quality of patient outcomes, and nursing care services. The implications for nursing from this clinical and financial data are profound. They provide significant metrics and measures that link the impact and outcomes to nursing care delivery. These data may help us better understand and interpret the value and cost of care, including how nurses are used and assigned through electronic software programs for nurse scheduling and staffing patterns.
