Abstract

As key stakeholders from the clinical setting and vendor communities, the authors share a summary of their collective experience related to the challenges and issues associated with implementing the vocabularies recognized by the American Nurses Association in several installations of commercially available clinical information systems. Although the focus of the article is on summarizing the challenges and issues, it is of note that the authors' experiences across care settings suggest that the experience and effort of using one of the ANA-recognized vocabularies in a computer-based system are essentially worthwhile and positive. The issues and challenges fall into two categories: 1) those related to the developmental status of nursing vocabularies, and 2) those related to the adoption or implementation of new technology.
