HIC 2017: Nurses issue call to action for instrumental role in digital health
The nursing and digital health peak bodies have released a position statement on the role of nurses in the adoption of digital health technologies, warning that the 'build it and they will come’ view without clinician involvement has not been successful and the health sector's largest profession needs a seat at the digital health table.
Released at the Health Informatics Conference (HIC) in Brisbane on Sunday, the positions statement advocates for the instrumental role of nurses in digitally transforming healthcare and makes a call to optimise the use of information technology to enable better patient care.
