The New England Nursing Informatics Consortium is a community. We work to support our members educationally, operationally and continue to transform patient care though informatics.  We understand the profound impact this virus is having on our communities and are working to bring good information to you that transcends organizational and solution provider boundaries. 

On a personal note, we are with you.  Fred Rogers said “When I …. would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people helping’”. It is a privilege to serve dedicated, helping professionals striving to improve patient care.
