Building Standard-Based Nursing Information Systems is directed to practising and student nurses, health care professionals involved in the implementation of information systems, and information technology professionals working in the health sector. The objective of this book is to provide them with a basic source of facts related to the use and implementation of standards in nursing clinical and administrative documentation. Emphasis is placed on the importance of appropriately documenting nursing care, in order to facilitate analyses of nursing activities, the provision of quality and evidence-based direct patient care, and promotion of continuity of service. Standardized documentation is also required for communication of nursing concepts, interventions, and outcomes to other nurses and health professionals working in different settings and countries. The book focusses on key issues of modem nursing practice and illustrates how information technology support to the implementation and use of standard-based practice can improve clinical and management nursing functions [WHO website]
