Abstract

Everyday in hospitals, critical care environments, ambulatory clinics, academic environments, and vendor corporations, nurses are working side-by-side with colleagues in engineering to develop, evaluate, and maintain information systems and other technology solutions in healthcare. Together these professional teams have evolved from a domain specific focus to the development and implementation of integrated systems with decision support that enhance patient care, verify if outcomes are met, assure quality safe care, and document resource consumption. This chapter provides an overview of the demography of the Bronz: "2122_c043" - 2006/2/9 - 21:59 - page 2 - #2 profession, definitions of nursing informatics, current nursing informatics activities, and examples of bridging healthcare informatics and nursing.
