A Message from Our President

Welcome!  I am grateful to be part of an amazing organization and to have the opportunity to serve as your new President for the upcoming year.  As we slowly and cautiously emerge from the shadow of the pandemic, we recognize and celebrate you and all that nursing has contributed and sacrificed in this global effort.  We look forward to seeing each other in person once again to share our ideas, experiences, stories, and knowledge.  I encourage you to take advantage of the many educational and other activities that we have planned throughout the year highlighted by our Trends in Clinical Informatics conference to be held in April, in person, after a two-year hiatus.  Please take the time to explore what we have to offer, and we look forward your involvement in all our activities throughout the year.

Here are a few dates to put on your calendar:

We have been working with NE HIMSS and NYS HIMSS to bring you additional clinical informatics CE. Through those relationships, we are happy to bring these updates posted in the upcoming events section (to the right).

Patient ID Now Coalition- Learn more

The Patient ID Now Coalition is planning to hold a Patient ID Week from May 9 – 13. During this week, there will be email campaigns, social media campaigns, and a number of ways for you to participate. We plan to center each day of the week around a theme. We will explore how patient misidentification and the lack of a national strategy:

  • Impacts patients
  • Impacts equity
  • Increases the administrative burden
  • Harms privacy and security
  • Impacts public health

If you have any stories, anecdotes, or numbers that bolster our arguments and could fall into one of these themes, please let us know by filling out this google form.  The coalition will follow up after you fill out the form.
