Abstract

Web technologies, including intranet and internet applications, have become pervasive throughout society. Applications in healthcare settings are evolving rapidly and clearly demonstrating that professional and departmental activities can be enhanced, streamlined, and supported by this new technology. At Mount Sinai Hospital, obvious benefits are being derived from evolving internet and intranet applications that support nursing practice and management. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the advantages of internet/intranet functionality for nurses, and to describe an intranet application designed specifically for the adult critical care unit.
