Abstract

Discipline-specific and interdisciplinary knowledge building and evidence-based best practices depend on data acquisition, storage, retrieval, and analysis-extraction tools that are useful and compatible across national boundaries. Essential aspect of the data-infrastructure for the electronic patient record includes identification of both data sets to support practice and terminology to represent data elements. Development of an International Nursing Minimum Data Set (i-NMDS) has been initiated through the collaborative efforts of the International Medical Informatics Association, Nursing Informatics Special Interest Group (IMIA-NI) and the International Council of Nurses (ICN). The ICN also published the Beta Version of the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP®, a combinatorial terminology for nursing practice, in 1999. The purpose of this panel is to provide an update on i-NMDS and ICNP® development activities.
