NURS 8210 Week 1 Assignment: Introduction to Health Information Technology Systems and Nursing Informatics

NURS 8210 Week 1 Assignment: Introduction to Health Information Technology Systems and Nursing Informatics
In 1943, Tom Watson was quoted as saying, “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” Little did this chairman of IBM realize that the advent of computers would revolutionize all facets of society, including health care. The health care industry has used the power of technology to dramatically improve the quality of patient care. Today, bar code scanners document patient medications, robotic machinery is used to perform minimally invasive surgeries, and pill bottles feature audible labels to assist patients in taking the correct medication. As health care continues to change and new innovations appear, what types of skills will nurses need in order to harness the potential of emerging and evolving technologies?
This week you will examine the history of nursing informatics as well as the Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform (TIGER) initiatives that drive technology education for nurses. Using the TIGER and American Nurses Association guidelines, you also evaluate your own informatics competencies.
