Standing, as it does, at the intersection of the information, computer, social and behavioral sciences and healthcare, and dealing with the resources, devices and methods required to optimize the acquisition, storage, retrieval and use of information in health and biomedicine, nursing informatics is increasingly crucial in modern healthcare.|

This book presents selected papers from the Twelfth Nursing Informatics Congress (NI2014), held in Taipei, Taiwan in June 2014, and entitled 'East meets West eSMART+'. The aim of the congress is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally renowned forum for research in the theory and practice of nursing informatics. The comprehensive scientific program focuses on mobile and web technologies with healthcare delivery applications, as well as currently relevant core topics including patient safety and quality, data information management, usability, meaningful use and educating for competencies.

Containing 68 papers selected from the 280 presentations by delegates from more than 30 countries, the book presents an overview of current research and practice which will be of interest to all those whose healthcare role involves the use of modern information technology.
