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.

Looking forward to reading #AHRQ  report.
 
A new report funded by the  Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) describes #interoperability  challenges in the U.S. health information technology system and proposes a potential future state #healthIT  architecture. “A Robust Health Data Infrastructure” includes recommendations for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and  +HHS Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) as they continue to develop the national vision for an effective and efficient interoperable health ecosystem.

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.

#nurses  need to be sure they have their voices heard.
 
Check out Diana Mason on The Katie Couric Show as she discusses the need for nurses' voices to be heard, especially in the boardroom.
