CHAVES, Lucieli Dias Pedreschi et al. Reflections on Information Systems in Health, Evaluative Search and Nursing. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.34, pp.293-302. ISSN 1695-6141.

This study is aimed at reflecting theoretically on the nursing perspective, the use of health information systems as a source of quantitative data for evaluation research. From an analytical perspective, evaluative research establishes relations of influence between action / evaluated intervention, the effect and context. The health information systems provide quantitative data that allow to know the object of study subsidizing conducting evaluation studies. The use of information systems requires projects that contemplate the specific object of study, present the methodological steps for obtaining and analyzing the data of interest, in view of achieving the proposed objectives and answer evaluative question. For the nurse, the combination of evaluative research and information systems has the potential to develop scientific knowledge that support decision making in healthcare management and the development of new investigations.

Keywords : information systems; unified health system; health evaluation; use of scientific information for health decision making; nursing.
