Special Issue "Nursing Informatics: Consumer-Centred Digital Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2021).
Interests: consumer engagement; digital health tools; informatics education
The discipline of nursing informatics has thrived over the last decade. Nursing informaticists are working across the globe to guide the use of technologies to provide safe, efficient, and quality care for patients. In the past, nursing informatics focused on the implementation of electronic health records and other clinical systems. In 2020 and beyond, we will witness the expansion of patient-centered digital health tools within an ever-changing digital health ecosystem. Trends in virtual care, consumer participation, digital health tools, artificial intelligence, robotics, and precision health have all facilitated the transformation of the health care delivery system. In this Special Issue, we are interested in articles related to the use of digital health tools to foster patient- or consumer-centered care.
