The IMIA-NI (Nursing Informatics: Special Interest Group of International Medical Informatics Association)definition, agreed at their General Assembly in Stockholm in 1997, and amended for clarity at the General Assembly in Seoul, 1998 defined Nursing Informatics as the integration of nursing, its information, and information management with information processing and communication technology, to support the health of people world-wide.
The term “medical informatics” has its foundation with the French term “informatique” which concerns all the aspects of the computer as a tool for use in processing of information. The term “medical informatics” was used before “nursing informatics” and “health informatics”. Medical informatics is the use of computers for classification and retrieval of data and for the management health care information, enabling use to explore and better understand the informational and cognitive foundations of medicine3 (Blois, 1986).
In 1985 Hannah defined nursing informatics as the use of information technology by nurses carrying out their duties and which are in relation in relation to any function in the purview of nursing (as cited in Ball et al, 2000).
Graves and Corcoran (1989) state that nursing informatics is a “combination of computer science, information science, and nursing designed to assist in the management and processing of nursing data, information, and knowledge to support the practice of nursing and the delivery of nursing care.”
Romano (as cited in Ball et al., 2000) adds a further dimension to this definition by asserting that nursing informatics is “the application of the principles of information science and theory to the study, scientific analysis, and management of nursing information for the purpose of establishing a body of nursing knowledge”.
