For example, an information technology professional may seek information about system errors, a staff manager may want information about time expenditures, and an accountant may want data related to a system’s cost-effectiveness. As the nurse informaticist who is conducting the system evaluations, you must be able to anticipate and cater to the informational demands of stakeholders to help guide the evaluation planning process and produce more meaningful evaluations.
