Nursing leadership can play an essential role in the development of nursing informatics solutions by virtue of their broad understanding and oversight of nursing care. We describe a systems-level method for creating nursing informatics solutions with clearly defined structure and leadership from nursing executives. Based on the guiding principles of clear lines of responsibility, respect for expertise, and commitment to project aims, this allows nursing executive leadership to organize, set up, and own the development of nursing informatics solutions.
