Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The progress of information technology (IT) has not only changed the way we live, but also made health instruments more user friendly and convenient. In recent years, the application of IT in nursing has increased, as has relevant research in the literature. It also has been verified in the literature that IT has improved clinical practice efficiency and effectiveness. However, the development of IT in nursing has progressed slower than expected in health care settings because nursing information system flows are complicated and the scope necessarily covered by nursing information systems is broad. In addition, with limited experience, the development of nursing information systems has posed a tremendous challenge, with nurse administrators facing significant barriers and difficulties. The purpose of this paper was to share our experience establishing a unit based on a nationwide nurses' information bank.
