Nursing Informatics

Nursing Informatics is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in nursing practice (American Nurses Association, 2008). 

The Clinical Informatics’ team works in collaboration with multidisciplinary patient care teams to optimize the design and functionality of the electronic health record, promoting standardized, evidenced based, efficient and safe clinical care processes.

We coordinate and facilitate educational activities associated with the EHR, including orientation, refresher classes, system upgrade preparations and new technological device implementations.

As liaisons between Patient Care Services and Information Services, we are able to translate essential clinical processes into technological tools resulting in optimized workflows and improved quality of patient care.
