Informatics is all around us, we use them on a daily basis. From charting in EMRs, pulling medications, telehealth, patient portals, or looking at x-rays or CT scans we are using informatics. Informatics has been shown to improve the quality of care for patients, reduce mortality rates, cut costs, and collect data to support learning (Hebda, Hunter, & Czar, 2019). When nursing first started there was no informatics everything was done the old-fashioned way. It was not until recently that the healthcare field has started to modernize the way that they do things.
