Despite paying more for healthcare than any other country in the world, the US ranks below more than 40 other countries in life expectancy - down significantly from two decades earlier.

For the more than 2.6 million nurses who make up more than half of the national healthcare workforce, IT will be more than an enabler. This fourth edition of Nursing Informatics serves as a definitive guide to the transformation now underway, drawing insight and energy from the initiative known as Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform (TIGER). Launched by a small group of nurse advocates, TIGER is a guiding force for integration of technology and informatics into education and practice nationally and provides leadership across health professions and delivery settings. Subsequently, it has developed nine collaborative sections that address critical areas for change: education and faculty development, staff development, informatics competencies, standards and interoperability, usability and clinical application design, leadership development, national health information technology agenda, virtual demonstration center, and consumer and personal health record. This new edition reflects the core tenets set forth in the recommendations made by the TIGER initiative, focusing on a range of issues: Transformation, culture change, and diffusion Competencies, education, staff development, and leadership Infrastructure, adoption, and implementation Comparative effectiveness research and personalized medicine Global initiatives The editors for this new edition include key nurse advocates and informaticians active in the TIGER initiat
