Published January 18, 2023

Sharon Hewner, PhD, RN, co-authored a chapter in “Nursing Informatics for the Advanced Practice Nurse: Patient Safety, Quality, Outcomes and Interprofessionalism,” a book that received a first-place American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year Award (2022). 


Hewner’s chapter, “Electronic Health Records and Health Information Exchanges Providing Value and Results for Patients, Providers, and Health Care Systems,” was co-authored by Anne Kimbol and Susan McBride.

The chapter defines health information exchanges (HIEs) and the ability of HIEs to use and share information with the eHealth Exchange and other national HIEs. It also compares technical and business HIE models and assesses barriers to and factors associated with success; examines evaluation models; and evaluates case studies, privacy information and reinforcing the value of HIEs.

The book, edited by Susan McBride and Mari Tietze, addresses key topics in nursing informatics, including point of care technology, data management, patient safety and quality, population health, and emerging technologies.

Each year, AJN selects the most valuable nursing texts from a range of topics and specialties that include adult primary care, advanced practice nursing, informatics, nursing education, professional issues, and others.
