Abstract

In recent years, computerized information systems have become one of the most important tools for promoting, developing and supporting quality improvement in healthcare. The unique contribution of these systems is related to the collection, storage and analysis of data as well as user-friendly and sophisticated access to end-users. Israel's nursing system has yet to fully implement the use of these systems in order to facilitate systematic measurement and improvement of nursing care quality.
