Identifying the changing roles and responsibilities of chief nursing officers and chief medical informatics officers, HIMSS Analytics announced the results of a research report that examined topics such as the roles of CNOs and CMIOs within a healthcare organization and their influence on IT decisions.
The report, “Medical Device Integration: CMIO and CNO Perspectives,” sponsored by Capsule, a leading provider of medical device connectivity, gathered the opinions of CMIOs, CNOs and senior nursing executives.
The study found that senior nurse executives will continue to have involvement in the lifecycle of IT in any future decisions such as medical device integration, but will need to find a balance with their many non-technology-driven responsibilities.
“Nurses are an integral part of successfully achieving improved outcomes, optimal wellness and overall population health management,” said Joyce Sensmeier, RN–BC, MS, CPHIMS, FHIMSS, FAAN, vice president of informatics for HIMSS. “Because of the breadth and depth of nursing engagement in all aspects of healthcare, nurse leaders are in a key position to influence advances in technology and the multidimensional needs across all care settings.”
