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 Lead: Lynne Nagle, RN, PhD, FAAN
