HMA Principal Authors Chapter in AJN Book of the Year

Recently, the book, Nursing Informatics for the Advanced Practice Nurse: Patient Safety, Quality, Outcomes, and Interprofessionalism, which features a chapter written by HMA Principal David Bergman, was awarded first place in the 2019 American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year Awards in the Informatics category.

According to Springer Publishing Company, the book “delivers a practical array of tools and information to show how advanced practice nurses can maximize patient safety, quality of care, and cost savings through the use of technology. Since the first edition of this text, health information technology has only expanded. With increased capability and complexity, the current technology landscape presents new challenges and opportunities for interprofessional teams. Nurses, who are already trained to use the analytic process to assess, analyze, and intervene, are in a unique position to use this same process to lead teams in addressing healthcare delivery challenges with data.”

Bergman’s chapter, written with book authors Susan McBride, PhD, RN-BC, CPHIMS, FAAN and Mari Tietze, PhD, RN-BC, FHIMS, is titled, National Healthcare Transformation and Information Technology.
