The Nursing Terminology Summit has used collaborative processes to bring about significant changes in the development of terminology standards for nursing. This paper draws on agendas, reports, notes, and other documents from the Summit, in addition to the authors’ own experience as Organizer, Steering Committee, and participants, to provide a brief history of the Summit process. The analysis identifies factors that increased the risk of failure as well as factors that fostered success. The paper concludes with lessons learned that can be applied in other arenas to promote change in medical informatics
