About this book


Since its publication in 1988, Nursing Informatics: Where Caring and Technology Meet has established itself as the premier reference text in the field for nurses, nursing administrators, nursing students, and other health care professionals who seek a state-of-the-art review of the role of information technology in the nursing profession. The second edition of this seminal work addresses the growth and evolution of the nursing informatics discipline and how the rapid and far reaching changes that are occurring in information technology and in health care are impacting nurses. In addition to a new section on Integration, the second edition includes all new chapters on: the national health information infrastructure; reengineering health care and business processes; electronic resources for nursing; usability concepts and the clinical workstation; impact of information technology of cost/benefit and efficiency/effectiveness analysis; ubiquitous computing and the nurse; home health care systems; information management and long-term care; the information needs of nurse managed centers; critical path/care map and case management needs; large databases and their implications for planning and health policy; virtual reality; and defining the informatics nurse specialist.
