Nursing practice-outcome analysis has historical roots in

Nightingale's statistical documentation of professional nursing

care during the Crimean War. From brief narratives to

computerization of uniform data sets nursing evaluation of care

has responded to the times. An information rich society

extracts, organizes, stores, manipulates, communicates, and makes

health policy decisions by increasing use of sophisticated

computerized systems. Reflective thought as to the ethics, value

and vicissitudes of computerized nursing data banks is essential

in the development, design, retrieval, and interpretation of

nurse practice outcome analysis. This research presents the

practice-outcome analysis of 22,000 births managed by

nurse-midwives at Frontier Nursing Service between 1925 and l987.

Descriptive statistics document the practices, clients served,

and maternal/infant outcomes. Multivariate, longitudinal,

cross-sectional, and trend analysis examine the relationship

between selected practices and their outcomes. A research center

was designed to facilitate direct data entry from microfilmed

records into a relational database program. A multiuser Xenix

system and sophisticated interfacing between terminals was

created. This FNS study is used as a model to examine the value

and vicissitudes of a computerized nursing data set. The

discussion extends to the ethical issues related to storage,

retrieval, interpretation, manipulation, and use of research

results housed in computerized databanks.
