The American Nurses Association (ANA) defines Nursing Informatics as the “specialty that integrates nursing science with multiple information and analytical sciences to identify, define, manage and communicate data, information, knowledge and wisdom in nursing practice.
This is especially important in electronic health records (EHRs) and for organizations supporting data driven solutions. Using EHRs, informatics nurses can gather and analyze data to support knowledge and wisdom, creating opportunities for growth and innovation. They work with a wide range of professionals including physicians, end users, IT department, and C level executives to leverage their clinical and technical expertise to help bridge the gap between healthcare and technology. Informatics Nurses advocates for innovation while focusing on patient safety.
