    5. Focused awareness with nursing stakeholders in three areas • Develop a U.S. nursing workforce capable of using electronic health records to improve the delivery of healthcare • Engage more nurses in the development of a national healthcare information technology (NHIT) infrastructure • Accelerate adoption of smart, standards-based, interoperable technology that will make healthcare delivery safer, more efficient, timely, accessible, and patient-centered Executive Summary

    6. 2004: President Bush supported adoption of electronic health records • 2005: Small group of nursing leaders and advocates met and resolved to strengthen the voice of the nursing profession in the transformation of healthcare for 21st century • Organized TIGER Initiative (2005) TIGER: Background

    7. 2006: Interactive summit, “Evidence and Informatics Transforming Nursing” • Created a vision for the future of nursing that bridges the quality chasm with information technology, enabling nurses to use informatics in practice and education to provide safer, higher quality patient care TIGER: Background- Nursing Engagement

    8. Focus on nursing, however recommendations apply to interdisciplinary health professions • Aim to develop a nursing workforce in the US capable of using electronic health records (EHRs) with hope to improve care delivery • 2009 Obama signs American Recovery and Reinvestment Act- $19 billion for health information technology (HIT) • Funding by Dept of Labor and Dept of Education to increase HIT workforce TIGER: Background Cont.

    9. Capital, technology, resources, and people needed to create an informatics-aware healthcare workforce • Healthcare provider competency with EHRs (requires basic computer skills, information literacy, and understanding of informatics and information management) • Education reform- ≈3 million currently practicing nurses may not be competent with HIT TIGER: Background Cont.

    10. “Our vision is to enable nurses to use informatics tools, principles, theories, and practices to make health care safer, more effective, efficient, patient-centered, timely, and equitable by interweaving enabling technologies transparently into nursing practice and education, making information technology the stethoscope for the 21st century”. TIGER VISION

    11. Publish a Summit report, including Summit findings and exemplars of excellence. • Establish guidelines for organizations to follow as they integrate informatics knowledge, skills, and abilities into academic and practice settings. • Set an agenda whereby the nursing organizations specify what they plan to do to bridge the quality chasm via information technology strategies.
