re: Nursing Information Officers: Newest Health IT Leaders
Nurses are core to healthcare functions. Only a nurse knows the workflows needed to care for a patient, the electronic health record is not just taking the paper and typing it into the computer, it is a valuable tool to track a patient's progress over time, deliver clinical decision support to the clinician at point of use, and overall increase patient safety in an increasingly complex environment. Gideon I am sorry for you that you cannot see the value in a partnership with nurses and other clinicians to provide an efficient and safe patient electronic record. We must all keep in mind our patients come first.

Gideon, loose the attitude. Try working WITH nursing, then EMR may become a usable product.

Yes, I.T. is the ONLY rapidly changing field. Medicine and Nursing have remained unchanged.
There are good and bad in any field.

re: Nursing Information Officers: Newest Health IT Leaders
I am a registered nurse very much challenged to meet the needs of the communities using new innovations in healthcare. Rapid changes in IT is no joke. I agree with Gideon on this issue, however, there are nurses that are literate in HIT. As long as the Board of Nursing joins forces with other agencies linked with public health and community health information networks (CHIN) in the never-ending needs that are met by HIT courses then health information would never be compromised by using non-professionals in the health care industry. Credibility is always key in providing health information and privacy for consumers.

re: Nursing Information Officers: Newest Health IT Leaders
Train an IT person for 6-months on some healthcare issues, then, you don't need a nursing informatics. Most Nurses will not be able to catch up with rapid changes in IT. They are technically deficient. Even if you train them, they will still be way behind. Teach IT some of the hospital stuff, and you will see how we will replace those nurses who sit down on their fat asses, doing nothing!


IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
