Abstract:

Session presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013

eHealth, the application of information and communication technology for health, is having an impact on individuals, communities and health providers.  Nurses worldwide must be involved in the development, application and evaluation of eHealth strategies, demonstrating strategic and operational leadership. Professionally, nurses demonstrate leadership through developing eHealth-relevant standards and competencies, and through evidence of best practice in care delivery. Combining professional and technical leadership, nurses develop and advocate for technology applications such as nursing terminologies and tele-transmission modalities that optimize care delivery and contribute to improved care outcomes.  Nurses must be involved in the political aspects of eHealth including interdisciplinary programmes and solutions. Likewise, nurses must have the economic knowledge necessary to achieve economic parity in eHealth-related practice, education and research. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) launched the eHealth Programme in 2011 to address the professional, technical, political and economic aspects of eHealth. The eHealth Programme envisions transforming nursing through information and communication technology. To that end, the Programme supports a standardized nursing terminology for application in electronic health records. The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP) terminology supports nursing documentation for multi-level analyses and harmonization with other terminologies such as SNOMED-CT. The Programme has a strategic partnership with the Sanofi Connecting Nurses initiative that provides an online forum for nurses worldwide to share their experiences, practices and creative achievements. The Programme also manages the 250-member Telenursing Network which provides education and professional connections, and promotes nursing in telehealth and policies for education and practice. The Programme has interdisciplinary partners to include WHO-Family of International Classifications and International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth. The ICN eHealth Programme demonstrates significant global leadership toward improved global healthcare and outcomes.
