Is this the first step to unblock data?
 
Open source analytics; is this the future of healthcare research?

Remember to give back!
Ever since the days of Florence Nightingale, nurses have been mentoring novices. Learn how Robert Wood Johnson Foundation supports mentoring programs to develop new nurse leaders.

Interesting!  What should you know about about #healthit   as a consumer.
This is where consumer education comes in. Listen to what the experts say, then do some experimenting.

+National Partnership for Women & Families is spot on, when they said "All of us who care about achieving the 'Triple Aim' – better care, better health and lower costs – know that success depends on patients being equal and engaged partners, true co-creators, of their health and their care. This rule signals a turn in precisely the wrong direction. - President Debra L. Ness,"
 
Is this really the direction we want to move?  Just because it is hard, doesn't mean it isn't worth working toward. #CMS  +U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 
One of the most troublesome measures of Stage 2 meaningful use has been the requirement that providers get at least five percent of their patients to view download or transmit their digitized health information. That may soon change.

I have heard the discussion before "if you have a informatics nursing graduate degree do you need Board Certification (BC)".  I think the answer is no; you don't need BC. But I do thinking obtaining BC opens a door to discuss the merits of this exciting new nursing specialty.  I think it does illustrate that I have the core knowledge that those without a NI focused graduate degree have and provides me with an opportunity to explain how much more an Informatics Nurse Specialist (INS) can offer to any workplace.

Cool tool.
 
Ever wonder about the status of #Healthit  adoption or the impact of federal programs.  Here a place to look.. check at the #ONC  dashboard.
The Health IT Dashboard provides data, information products, and data visualizations related to health IT adoption and use and ONC programs. The Dashboard is provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT.
