Abstract

Clinical intelligence is an emerging field in healthcare that will change nursing practice, driving clinical outcomes and operational efficiencies. Clinical intelligence is essential to healthcare organizations in fully realizing the value of the growing amount of data being generated through electronic health records and other clinical information systems. This article discusses the asset of clinical data, the multiple roles of nurses in maximizing the value of this asset, and a vision for nursing’s future in regards to clinical intelligence.
