About

The National Nursing Data Standards group’s goal is to increase the adoption and uptake of clinical data standards in Canada.

This group will be of interest to individuals/organizations that are implementing clinical documentation – specifically admission and discharge assessments, within their clinical information systems. By participating in the group you will be aware of the clinical documentation standards that are being implemented across Canada and benefit from the lessons learned from other organizations that have implemented clinical data standards.

The adoption of national clinical data standards will:

  • Allow for consistent monitoring of outcomes across the continuum of care, thereby facilitating safe, quality care and continuity of care;
  • Enable national, peer-group comparability, providing both macro and micro insights to guide decision-making and inform funding requirements and health human resource planning;
  • Improve population health by enabling individuals to use consistently named, defined, and measured clinical outcomes data to understand and manage illness and improve their health.

Group Leads: Lynn Nagle, RN, PhD, FAAN, FCAN - Peggy White, RN, MN, FCAN

Kelly Davison created a new discussion in National Nursing Data Standards
Good morning NNDS Community. A reminder from SNOMED International: " This is a reminder that we have a meeting of the Nursing CRG on 18 November at 2000 UTC. We want to focus discussion on implementation of SNOMED CT and how nurses are working with their EHRs, and identifying use cases that you have nationally or locally, along with any issues/questions that are being raised. This will enable the group to explore key areas of work which the group can focus on going forward. And we will provide an update on SNOMED International work relevant to nursing, including our work with ICN to incorporate ICNP into SNOMED CT. We look forward to 'seeing' everyone on 18 November 2020 at 2000 UTC and meanwhile please let us know if you have any discussion points you would like to raise. The agenda can be found at... are dial in details as well.
