Nursing’s pivotal role in eHealth: a brief, selective history

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Florence Nightingale first drew attention to the problems associated with hospital record-keeping 150 years ago, thereby establishing a basis for contemporary health informatics. The advent of computers over the past half century or so provided new opportunities for nurses to engage with informatics. This chapter maps the evolution of nursing informatics over the past several decades, drawing on work around terminology and vocabularies. It charts nurses’ involvement in informatics from their relatively humble beginnings to their pivotal role in many innovations in the field.
