Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform

The focus of the TIGER Initiative is to better prepare our nursing workforce (all practicing nurses and nursing students) to use technology and informatics to improve the delivery of patient care.

We believe that necessary skills for nurses’ portfolio in 2007 includes basic computer competencies, information literacy and informatics skills.

The TIGER Initiative is a program; not an organization.

TIGER has been a grass-roots effort to engage with all stakeholders that are committed to a common “vision” of ideal EHR-enabled nursing practice. Today, more than 120 diverse organizations have joined this effort.



  • Allow informatics tools, principles, theories and practices to be used by nurses to make healthcare safer, effective, efficient, patient-centered, timely and equitable
  • Interweave enabling technologies transparently into nursing practice and education, making information technology the stethoscope for the 21st century

Converging forces that are serving as a catalyst for transforming nursing practice

Rising cost and disparity of U.S. Healthcare system demands transformation

IOM studies and reports

Emerging technologies

Growing consumerism

Impending nursing shortage

Disaster recovery preparedness

u s health care workforce nursing
U.S. Health Care Workforce - Nursing

Nearly 3 million practicing nurses in the U.S.

More than 55% of all health care workers

Nurses are knowledge workers

Average age of nurse is 47

Estimated severe shortage of nurses by 2014

Nursing’s workforce must be capable of innovating, implementing, and using health communications and information technologies

“There is no aspect of our profession that will be

untouched by the informatics revolution in progress.”

iom vision
IOM Vision

While clinicians are trained to use an array of cutting-edge technologies related to care delivery, they often are not provided a basic foundation in informatics (Gorman et al.,2000; Hovenga, 2000).

“All health professionals should be educated to deliver patient-centered care as members of an interdisciplinary team, emphasizing evidence-based practice, quality improvement approaches and informatics.”

IOM - Health Professions Education: A Bridge to Quality, 2003.

tiger summit phase i
TIGER Summit – Phase I
  • October 31 -November 1, 2006
  • Held at the Uniformed Services University for Health Sciences (USUHS) in Bethesda, MD
  • 100 participants representing all stakeholders
  • Created a collective vision for nursing practice and education within 10 years if nurses were fully enabled with IT resources
  • Developed a 3-year action plan required to achieve this vision
  • Summary Report published at
3 year action plan
3-Year Action Plan

Based on a common “vision” of ideal EHR-enabled nursing practice

Focused on identifying the “gaps” in nursing preparedness to practice in an EHR-enabled environment

Agree to take actions within the next 3 years that can close these gaps

Main focus of deliverables is on the creation of educational tools and resources that can be shared with entire healthcare community

attitudes and awareness competencies
Attitudes and Awareness Competencies
  • A precursor to effective adoption of all competencies
  • Competency encompasses more than just a psychomotor skill. The team competency in these contexts now describes the attributes of knowledge, abilities, skills and attitudes that underlie competent performance. (Gonczi et al., 1990: 62).
  • Currently evaluating the European Computer Driving License-Health model for correlation to awareness competencies
  • Overlapping concepts with the other three categories (basic computer competencies, information literacy, and information management/informatics)
  • Alspatch, 1984: "a simultaneous integration of knowledge, skill and attitudes that are required for performance in a designated role or setting."
