Description/Overview: Technology is changing the way nurses care for patients and conduct research. New tools and methods offer challenges and opportunities. In this interactive symposium, three presentations of original research will highlight cutting edge developments in nursing informatics topics and partnerships. Topics include security measures for internet-delivered tailored interventions, methods for evaluating and improving the human-technology interface, and advanced data-mining methods for discovering hidden patterns in electronic health record data. After each of the three presentations, participants will be invited to share their experiences related to the issues, and create a working agenda for future nursing informatics research that will be disseminated to participants and through nursing informatics organizations. The three presenters are members of the Omaha System Partnership for Knowledge Discovery and Health Care Quality, an innovative community of scholars networking with clinicians and experts globally to advance population health through the use of standardized electronic documentation data.
Learner Objective #1: Objective 1. Describe the use of cutting edge informatics methods and clinical data sets to generate new nursing knowledge and improve population health.
Learner Objective #2: Objective 2. Describe development of secure internet-based health interventions and information systems to support health and translate evidence-based practice.
