Exploring the Impact of a Profession

Participate in the HIMSS Impact of Nursing Informatics 2008 Survey!

Over the course of the past years, HIMSS has surveyed the nursing informatics community to gain an understanding of the role of the informatics nurse professional. This year our survey, sponsored by McKesson, addresses the value and impact that informatics nurse professionals bring to the bedside, industry and you. Initial results will be presented during the 2009 HIMSS Annual Conference in Chicago, followed by subsequent press releases and articles with complete findings and analysis that we will make publicly available.

At this time, we are seeking individuals in leadership roles across all settings to take a few moments to complete our on-line survey. Please visit this link today to participate in the study and forward this link to your organizational leadership. These responses will provide valuable information and helps ensure this study accurately reflects the impact of nursing informatics today.
