HIMSS Publishing; 2nd edition
The first version of Nursing and Informatics for the 21st Century was a resounding success and won numerous awards; the second edition of that book is now available in PDF format. The first version of this book was initially released in 2006, and it quickly established itself as an essential resource for charting the massive historical transformation in nursing that was tied to the explosion of EHR national plans and health policies around the world. This revised and expanded second edition, which was co-published by AMIA, investigates the revolution that has taken place in nursing and investigates the role that information technology is playing in this transformation. It does so by providing an in-depth analysis of scientific research, nursing practice, and nursing education all over the world.
This ebook provides a “snapshot” of the adoption of information technology and nursing practices around the world. It contains approximately fifty case studies that were authored by nursing's recognized experts and leading innovators across certain parts of the healthcare business and the world. This PDF ebook offers an in-depth review of nursing advances in the United States as well as an extended focus on the rest of the world, including profiles of EHR projects in various countries in Asia and the Middle East. In addition, new themes have been added to the second edition of Nursing and Informatics for the 21st Century. These topics include nursing faculty development and the results of an international study on nursing clinical documentations that was conducted across five countries.
