Challenges in Nursing Informatics
Issues in Nursing Informatics
Nursing Informatics in the Philippines
What is Nursing Informatics ?
Nursing Informatics is the "science and practice (that) integrates nursing, its information and knowledge, with management of information and communication technologies to promote the health of people, families, and communities worldwide."
This support is accomplished through the use of information structures, information processes, and information technology.
in the Philippines
CHED as a Catalyst
In 2008, Nursing Informatics course in the undergraduate curriculum was defined by the
Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Memorandum Order 5 Series of 2008
Issues and Challenges in Nursing Informatics
in the Philippines
"Nursing informatics face many challenges while in its infancy stage. It is still in the process of achieving our goal in making health setting effective and efficient."
Development of training, certification and credentialing programs
Future partnerships with local and international
nursing and health informatics organizations.
PNIA's CORE X strategic platform
xperience and e
As health care requirements change,
nurses will not only have to process and communicate more information by
the nature and types of this
information will dramatically change as well. It is imperative that nurses understand the potential information technologies offer to assist the nurse in this expanded role.

How do Informatics Nurses Impact the Nursing Process?
"Enable the professional nurse to be the “Coordinator” of each patient’s care"
Communicate & coordinate care with ALL other clinical disciplines.
Coordinate discharge planning,
education & teaching,
transitions of care.
Manage ALL information
related to the nursing
process and patient
Because information management is integrated into nursing practice, there are now additional steps in the nursing process.
The collection tool for information management
Key role for Nursing Informatics
Key to research and evidence collection
Key to successful implementation
Research and Evidence Collection
Key to repeatable, standardized care and improved outcomes
Who are Informatics Nurses?
Expert nursing clinicians in utilizing the nursing process
Clinicians with extensive clinical practice
Have additional education & experience related to technology and information systems
Framework for Nursing Informatics
Data - as discrete entities that are described objectively without interpretation.
Information - as data that
are interpreted, organized
Knowledge - as information that has been synthesized so that interrelationships are identified and formalized.
1998 - several faculty members of the University of the Philippines began formal education and training.
1999 - a study group was formed headed by the National Institute of Health of the University of the Philippines Manila.
"international standards for health
information and their adaptability in the Philippines"
2003 - a
Master of Science in Health Informatics
was proposed to be offered by UP-Manila College of Medicine (
major in medical informatics
) and the College of Arts and Science (
major in bioinformatics
) and was later approved to be offered starting academic year 2005-2006.
, Mr. Kristian R. Sumabat and Ms. Mia Alcantara-Santiago, both nurses and
graduate students of Master of Science in Health Informatics at the University of the
began drafting plans to create a nursing informatics organization.
they began recruiting other nursing informatics specialists and practitioners
to organize a group
which later became as the
"Philippine Nursing Informatics Association."
Ms. Sheryl Ochea
Ms. Alexrandra Bernal
Ms. Pia Pelayo
Mr. Sid Cardenas
Mr. Noel Bañez
Ms. Rona Abcede
Mr. Harby Ongbay Abellanosa.
This was later revised and included as Health Informatics course in
CHED Memorandum Order 14 Series of 2009
This will be first implemented in the summer of 2010.
Implementing policies and management of information technology towards the development of informatics.
Environmental awareness of the clinical practitioners.
Maximizing the potentials of the nurses through implementation of what they have learned on
Inclusion of national budget is a crucial process of the government financial capacity.
Improving Nursing Care
Technologies can create better work environment for inpatient nurses:
Improve efficiency, safety and quality
Add value to the way nurses coordinate and provide care
Biomedical device integration
Nurses do not want to be passive consumers of technology
Nurses want devices that are integrated,
voice activated, handheld, use biometrics,
provide translation, are portable, are wireless,
auto populate, and are “smart”
Greater nurse satisfaction leads to greater patient satisfaction.
