The methods by which U.S. healthcare services are delivered are changing within the healthcare delivery system. The decision-making processes of healthcare providers are being guided by standardized protocols, clinical guidelines, policies, and procedures developed through evidence-based research. These clinical-decision support tools are adopted by healthcare organizations and embedded into electronic medical records to improve and standardize care among healthcare providers. Although these clinical support decision tools are readily available to healthcare providers, it is important to understand how these tools are being perceived among nurse practitioners. It is vital that the healthcare system understand the experiences of nurse practitioners with the use of evidence-based research embedded into electronic medical records to ensure consistent use of these tools in practice. While there is research available that supports the use of evidence-based research in practice, there is a lack of research available that explores nurse practitioners’ perspectives on evidence-based practice embedded within electronic medical records. This qualitative, phenomenological evidence-based project was designed to explore these experiences by conducting a semistructured interview with four nurse practitioners who had access to medical records embedded with EBR.
