The purpose of this paper is to describe a nursing informatics engagement strategy at an academic teaching hospital in Canada aimed at sustaining and retaining the nursing workforce by (1) enhancing nursing engagement and leadership in informatics decision making; (2) improving nurses' experiences using the electronic health record (EHR) by creating a process of rapid handling of technology issues; (3) leveraging data about nurses' EHR system use to identify opportunities to further streamline documentation; and (4) enhancing and optimizing informatics education/training and communication strategies. The nursing informatics strategy aims to improve engagement among nursing staff, as well as decrease the burden of using the EHR as a way of addressing possible causes of burnout.
