PCS Informatics’ goal is to improve the quality and practice of patient care by incorporating the best use of technology, by optimizing management of information and enhancing staff communication.
PCSI gets Patient Care Services’ staff the information they need. PCSI provides quality improvement data gathering systems and statistics for clinics and produce presentations for outside conferences and seminars.
PCSI furnishes Internet site content that introduces parents and children to St. Jude. This site also gives parents information they need in caring for their children at home.
PCSI improves communication. PCSI works with our caregivers and software developers to produce bridge systems – databases for our specialty departments that are not commercially available.
PCS Informatics works with Clinical Informatics and Patient Care Services in all aspects of computer training for St. Jude. We have designed an introductory computer course for Nursing. We teach group and “one on one” sessions.
