Innovative systematic clinical research methodology to measure nursing workload in implementation of a clinical information system using a Plan of Care (POC) and standardized nursing terminology. The Clinical Care Classification (CCC) System Information Model was selected for data modeling. Method: Advanced calculations of nursing workload (time) through weighted Action Type, based on Relative Value Units (RVUs). Results: POC method is a valid and reliable measure of nurse workload based on RVU correlation with CCC actions.
