Technology and Quality Nursing Care
As a professional nurse, it is essential that you are comfortable with emerging technology and systems for recording data and documentation of care given. There is a proliferation of data required; performance measures documentation as well as continuous changes in how we conceptualize due to technological change. All of these processes have a profound effect on how we practice our profession.
The Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform (TIGER) Initiative’s vision statement reads:
To enable nurses and interprofessional colleagues to use informatics and emerging technologies to make healthcare safer, more effective, efficient, patient-centered, timely and equitable by interweaving evidence and technology seamlessly into practice, education and research fostering a learning healthcare system (TIGER, 2021).
