UK Nursing Informatics, HIMSS and Cerner, Promoting the Role of UK Nurses in Implementing Information Technology

28 August 2013

The 2013 United Kingdom (UK) Nursing Informatics (NI) Leadership US Immersion Study was a joint effort between HIMSS, HIMSS Europe and Cerner. The three partners launched a year-long initiative aimed at promoting the role of UK nurses in implementing and using information technology.

Culminating the year-long initiative was a hosted nursing leadership delegation trip to Chicago in June 2013. A 10-person delegation of nursing informatics leaders was selected from across the UK to meet with U.S. nursing informatics leaders, to visit key U.S. health care institutions that use nursing informatics in their care delivery, and to meet with other provider, supplier and government leaders.

From this experience came a series of blog posts on the HIMSS blog. The posts are linked below.
