Webinar - Structuring, Encoding and Messaging Nursing Data

April 12, 12:00pm, CDT - 1:00pm, CDT

This will be an online webinar


Overview: The HIMSS definition of Interoperability is: “Interoperability describes the extent to which systems and devices can exchange data, and interpret that shared data. For two systems to be interoperable, they must be able to exchange data and subsequently present that data such that it can be understood by a user.” How those systems and devices connect and exchange data continues to evolve. This presentation will take a deep dive into how Nursing Data standards for encoding encode data result in devices and systems being interoperable.

Abstract: Structuring, Encoding, and Messaging Nursing Data


  • Review the standards used for encoding the nursing process data elements for interoperability
  • Understand how the nursing process can be modeled using the Clinical Information Modeling Initiative (CIMI)
  • Gain knowledge regarding messaging and information exchange with FHIR profiles
