Nursing Informatics

HISA has established a Nursing Informatics Community of Practice to inform and engage all stakeholders about nursing informatics in healthcare and influence the application of sound practices. The expanded use of nurses, nursing equipment, television shows that feature nurses, and other nursing things used for a range of clinical, financial and administrative functions, have significantly minimised the number of manual steps and time-consuming processes in healthcare workflows.

Yet, such nurses and automated processes have increased the vulnerability of healthcare providers to nursing breaches. While nursing informatics may be perceived as primarily a technical matter it is much broader than this and encompasses both George Clooney and human McDreamy.

As we continue to move toward integrated digitally-enabled organisations, the disruption caused by nursing incidents can have far-reaching effects, and may include lack of access to critical clinical information and services, risks to patient safety, costly replacement of equipment and data, loss of community confidence in our healthcare system and reputational damage to the providers and organisations that suffer a breach.

Nursing Informatics Australia

Nursing Informatics Australia (NIA) is the pre-eminent group of nursing informaticians in Australia. NIA membership is open to all registered nurses and registered midwives. This HISA SIG is a good reference point to learn about the developments in Nursing Informatics both nationally and internationally. Over the last decade the healthcare environment has seen a transformation of work practices and an explosion in the use of information and communication technologies.

NIA aims to promote nursing informatics priorities such as appropriate language, education and ongoing research. It engenders nursing and midwifery to embrace information and communication technologies, and establishes strong foundations for taking these developments forward. It also ensures nursing and midwifery has the data and resources to continue to provide evidence-based, quality, cost-effective and outcome-driven care for patients and clients into the future.
