Preface

The idea for this text originated with the development of nursing informatics (NI) classes, the publication of articles related to
technology-based education, and the creation of the Online Journal of Nursing Informatics (OJNI), which Dee McGonigle cofounded.
Like most nurse informaticists, we fell into the specialty; our love affair with technology and gadgets and our willingness to be the first
to try new things helped to hook us into the specialty of informatics. The rapid evolution of technology and its transformation of the
ways of nursing prompted us to try to capture the essence of NI in a text.

As we were developing the first edition, we realized that we could not possibly know all there is to know about informatics and the
way in which it supports nursing practice, education, administration, and research. We also knew that our faculty roles constrained our
opportunities for exposure to changes in this rapidly evolving field. Therefore, we developed a tentative outline and a working model
of the theoretical framework for the text and invited participation from informatics experts and specialists around the world. We were
pleased with the enthusiastic responses we received from some of those invited contributors and a few volunteers who heard about the
text and asked to participate in their particular area of expertise.

In the second edition, we invited the original contributors to revise and update their chapters. Not everyone chose to participate in
the second edition, so we revised several of the chapters using the original work as a springboard. The revisions to the text were guided
by the contributors’ growing informatics expertise and the reviews provided by textbook adopters. In the revisions, we sought to do the
following:

• Expand the audience focus to include nursing students from BS through DNP programs as well as nurses thrust into
informatics roles in clinical agencies.

• Include, whenever possible, an attention-grabbing case scenario as an introduction or an illustrative case scenario
demonstrating why the topic is important.

• Include important research findings related to the topic. Many chapters have research briefs presented in text boxes to
encourage the reader to access current research.

• Focus on cutting-edge innovations, meaningful use, and patient safety as appropriate to each topic.
• Include a paragraph describing what the future holds for each topic.

New chapters that were added to the second edition included those focusing on technology and patient safety, system development life
cycle, workflow analysis, gaming, simulation, and bioinformatics.

In this, the third edition, we reviewed and updated all of the chapters, reordered some chapters for better content flow, eliminated
duplicated content, split the education and research content into two sections, integrated social media content, and added two new
chapters: Data Mining as a Research Tool and The Art of Caring in Technology-Laden Environments.

We believe that this text provides a comprehensive elucidation of this exciting field. Its theoretical underpinning is the Foundation
of Knowledge model. This model is introduced in its entirety in the first chapter (Nursing Science and the Foundation of Knowledge),
which discusses nursing science and its relationship to NI. We believe that humans are organic information systems that are constantly
acquiring, processing, and generating information or knowledge in both their professional and personal lives. It is their high degree of
knowledge that characterizes humans as extremely intelligent, organic machines. Individuals have the ability to manage knowledge—
an ability that is learned and honed from birth. We make our way through life interacting with our environment and being inundated
with information and knowledge. We experience our environment and learn by acquiring, processing, generating, and disseminating
knowledge. As we interact in our environment, we acquire knowledge that we must process. This processing effort causes us to
redefine and restructure our knowledge base and generate new knowledge. We then share (disseminate) this new knowledge and
receive feedback from others. The dissemination and feedback initiate this cycle of knowledge over again, as we acquire, process,
generate, and disseminate the knowledge gained from sharing and reexploring our own knowledge base. As others respond to our
knowledge dissemination and we acquire new knowledge, we engage in rethinking and reflecting on our knowledge, processing,
generating, and then disseminating anew.

The purpose of this text is to provide a set of practical and powerful tools to ensure that the reader gains an understanding of NI
and moves from information through knowledge to wisdom. Defining the demands of nurses and providing tools to help them survive
and succeed in the Knowledge Era remains a major challenge. Exposing nursing students and nurses to the principles and tools used in
NI helps to prepare them to meet the challenge of practicing nursing in the Knowledge Era while striving to improve patient care at all
levels.

The text provides a comprehensive framework that embraces knowledge so that readers can develop their knowledge repositories
and the wisdom necessary to act on and apply that knowledge. The text is divided into seven sections.

• The Building Blocks of Nursing Informatics section covers the building blocks of NI: nursing science, information science,
computer science, cognitive science, and the ethical management of information.

• The Perspectives on Nursing Informatics section provides readers with a look at various viewpoints on NI and NI practice as
described by experts in the field.

• The Nursing Informatics Administrative Applications: Precare and Care Support section covers important functions of
administrative applications of NI.

• The Nursing Informatics Practice Applications: Care Delivery section covers healthcare delivery applications including
electronic health records (EHRs), clinical information systems, telehealth, patient safety, patient and community education,

and care management.
• The Education Applications of Nursing Informatics section presents subject matter on how informatics supports nursing

education.
• The Nursing Informatics: Research Applications section covers informatics tools to support nursing research, including data

mining and bioinformatics.
• The Imagining the Future of Nursing Informatics section focuses on the future of NI, emphasizes the need to preserve caring

functions in technology-laden environments, and summarizes the relationship of informatics to the Foundation of Knowledge
model and organizational knowledge management.

The introduction to each section explains the relationship between the content of that section and the Foundation of Knowledge
model. This text places the material within the context of knowledge acquisition, processing, generation, and dissemination. It serves
both nursing students (BS to DNP/PhD) and professionals who need to understand, use, and evaluate NI knowledge. As nursing
professors, our major responsibility is to prepare the practitioners and leaders in the field. Because NI permeates the entire scope of
nursing (practice, administration, education, and research), nursing education curricula must include NI. Our primary objective is to
develop the most comprehensive and user-friendly NI text on the market to prepare nurses for current and future practice challenges.
In particular, this text provides a solid groundwork from which to integrate NI into practice, education, administration, and research.

Goals of this text are as follows:
• Impart core NI principles that should be familiar to every nurse and nursing student
• Help the reader understand knowledge and how it is acquired, processed, generated, and disseminated
• Explore the changing role of NI professionals
• Demonstrate the value of the NI discipline as an attractive field of specialization

Meeting these goals will help nurses and nursing students understand and use fundamental NI principles so that they efficiently and
effectively function as current and future nursing professionals. The overall vision, framework, and pedagogy of this text offer benefits
to readers by highlighting established principles while drawing out new ones that continue to emerge as nursing and technology
evolve.

Acknowledgments

We are deeply grateful to the contributors who provided this text with a richness and diversity of content that we could not have
captured alone. Joan Humphrey provided social media content integrated throughout the text. We especially wish to acknowledge the
superior work of Alicia Mastrian, graphic designer of the Foundation of Knowledge model, which serves as the theoretical framework
on which this text is anchored. We could never have completed this project without the dedicated and patient efforts of the Jones &
Bartlett Learning staff, especially Amanda Martin and Becky Myrick. Both fielded our questions and concerns in a very professional
and respectful manner.

Dee acknowledges the undying love, support, patience, and continued encouragement of her best friend and husband, Craig, and
her son, Craig, who has also made her so very proud. She sincerely thanks her cousins Camille, Glenn, Mary Jane, and Sonny, and her
dear friends for their support and encouragement, especially Renee.

Kathy acknowledges the loving support of her family: husband Chip; children Ben and Alicia; sisters Carol and Sue; and parents
Bob and Rosalie Garver. Kathy also acknowledges those friends who understand the importance of validation, especially Katie,
Bobbie, Kathy, Anne, and Barbara.

Authors’ Note

This text provides an overview of nursing informatics from the perspective of diverse experts in the field, with a focus on nursing
informatics and the Foundation of Knowledge model. We want our readers and students to focus on the relationship of knowledge to
informatics and to embrace and maintain the caring functions of nursing—messages all too often lost in the romance with technology.
We hope you enjoy the text!
