Twelfth Annual Summer Institute in Nursing
July 24-27, 2002
"Informatics at the Crossroads: Transforming
University of Maryland School of Nursing
Announcing a call for papers and posters for the 12th Annual
Summer Institute in Nursing Informatics
) which will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, July 24-27, 2002. This years theme "Informatics at the Crossroads: Transforming Healthcare" is reflective of the critical juncture
where true integration of informatics into mainstream healthcare is occurring. No longer can informatics be viewed as a "nice to have" adjunct - in reality, healthcare requires a foundation of informatics in order to survive and thrive.
We live in challenging times - the privacy and confidentiality of electronic health information, bioterrorism, the human genome, patient safety, and the three "E"s (Efficiency, Effectiveness and Evidence) - all point to the foundation of information systems in healthcare. Informatics stands at the crossroads - as the engine that has the power to transform healthcare.
The informatics engine needs skilled professionals to build, manage and manipulate this power. This is why we invite you to join us for this exciting event and to share your experiences, your research and your ideas with a diverse group of informaticians, practitioners, and administrators. You will have not only the opportunity to share your work with others, but also to learn from national and international invited experts over the
