If computer-based care planning is to be acceptable to nurses, they must be able to enter care plans in a flexible and intuitive manner that does not distort their observations about the patient. The limitations of existing computer-based data entry techniques are discussed. A novel method of data entry called Predictive Data Entry is presented, and the underlying model of nursing terminology which supports it is described. The results of user evaluations are discussed.
