Since its first publication in 1988, this guide has established itself as the premier reference text in the field for all health care professionals seeking an up-to-date review of the role of information technology in the nursing profession. The second edition of this seminal work goes on to address the growth and evolution of the nursing informatics discipline as well as the impact of the rapid and far-reaching changes in IT and in health care. In addition to a new section on integration, this edition includes all-new chapters on subjects such as: the national health information infrastructure; reengineering health care and business processes; electronic resources for nursing; usability concepts and the clinical workstation; ubiquitous computing and the nurse; information management and long-term care; the information needs of nurse-managed centres; 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.
