Validating a Model for Defining Nursing Information System Requirements
Information systems are being installed to expedite the management of information in health care and nurses are being placed on information system committees to evaluate and select these systems. Nurses may have limited experience with information technology (Hoffman, 1985; Powell, 1982; Weaver & Johnson, 1984) and have difficulty identifying nursing requirements for systems. To assist with the process a graphic Model for Defining Nursing Information System Requirements (MDNISR) was developed (Gassert, 1989).
