DescriptionThe invitation-only Summit, Evidence and Informatics Transforming Nursing, comes at a time when the nation is working full-speed to realize the 10-year goal of Electronic Health Records (EHR) for its citizens. This is a critical juncture for nurses, who comprise 55% of the healthcare workforce. They must become more involved at every level, or the Informatics Revolution will pass the nursing profession by, to the detriment of healthcare consumers. This event gathered over 120 leaders from the nation’s nursing practice, education, informatics and professional nursing organizations, government agencies, and other key stakeholders around a singular exploratory focus: Creating a vision for the future of nursing that bridges the quality chasm with information technology (IT), enabling nurses to use informatics in practice and education to provide safer, higher-quality patient care. Our goal over the Summit’s two days was to create a 10-year vision and 3-year local and global action plan for transforming nursing practice and education to better prepare nurses to practice in an increasingly automated, informatics-rich, and consumer-driven health care environment.
