Mini Lecture
The IMIA-NI (Nursing Informatics: Special Interest Group of International Medical Informatics Association)definition, agreed at their General Assembly in Stockholm in 1997, and amended for clarity at the General Assembly in Seoul, 1998 defined Nursing Informatics as the integration of nursing, its information, and information management with information processing and communication technology, to support the health of people world-wide.

Evolution

The term “medical informatics” has its foundation with the French term “informatique” which concerns all the aspects of the computer as a tool for use in processing of information. The term “medical informatics” was used before “nursing informatics” and “health informatics”. Medical informatics is the use of computers for classification and retrieval of data and for the management health care information, enabling use to explore and better understand the informational and cognitive foundations of medicine3 (Blois, 1986).

In 1985 Hannah defined nursing informatics as the use of information technology by nurses carrying out their duties and which are in relation in relation to any function in the purview of nursing (as cited in Ball et al, 2000).

Graves and Corcoran (1989) state that nursing informatics is a “combination of computer science, information science, and nursing designed to assist in the management and processing of nursing data, information, and knowledge to support the practice of nursing and the delivery of nursing care.”

Romano (as cited in Ball et al., 2000) adds a further dimension to this definition by asserting that nursing informatics is “the application of the principles of information science and theory to the study, scientific analysis, and management of nursing information for the purpose of establishing a body of nursing knowledge”.

The ANA definition of nursing informatics. Nursing informatics is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge and wisdom in nursing practice.(ANA, 2008) Nursing informatics facilitates the integration of data, information, and knowledge to support patients, nurses, and other providers in their decision-making all roles and settings (ANA, 2008 p. 1). Aiding in their roles is what makes this definition role-oriented. Role oriented definitions seem to be the most complete of these NI definitions. They describe how the NI specialty functions under the broader scope of health informatics yet has specific components such as: differentiated practice, defined research, organizational representation, educational development, and credentialing (2008). As the definition has evolved, it has become more specific to nursing.
