There are 10 virtual workgroups which are working toward how to improve the capture and continuing use of nurse-sensitive data using national standards to to achieve the quadruple aim of better health, better patient experience, lower costs and improved work life of health care providers.

Keynote: Longitudinal, Patient-Focused, Interdisciplinary Care

Rebecca Freeman, Ph.D., R.N., P.M.P., of the ONC Chief Nursing Officer of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Delivery system reform will change the way health care is provided and paid for in the United States. Reimbursement will be based on patient outcomes across the care continuum; optimal outcomes will be achieved through efficient, team-based care that is expertly coordinated across care settings. Ideally, the movement of information from one care environment to the next must occur. Nurses are natural care coordinators and an integral part of any patient’s health optimization, but nursing documentation in some care settings is not always sharable and comparable with that of the rest of the care team. As care models change, nursing should plan for an interdisciplinary, shared terminology that allows them to be well-represented in the data that represent the care of the patient across the continuum.
