Johns Hopkins Nursing, Eclipsys Working to Re-engineer Nursing Curriculum with Clinical Information Technology

Baltimore, MD, and Boca Raton, FL—Sept. 7, 2004—Underscoring the growing role that information technology plays in the delivery of healthcare, The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) and Eclipsys Corporation® (NASDAQ:ECLP), The Outcomes Company®, have signed a letter of intent to launch a unique academic partnership. The goals of the partnership: to increase the healthcare information technology competence of nursing graduates and to design new ways of delivering safe and efficient healthcare utilizing healthcare information technology.


So, my philosophy has been this—when you want to introduce change and get the immigrants to see a new way of doing, you must let them "touch it".

It must be made real or else it is the boogie man in the basement. In other words "thy hands will touch the keyboard". I liken this to the impossibility of trying to teach someone how to play the piano by reading a book. It just doesn't work. You must immerse.

We did this via a public private partnership with industry, in our case the Eclipsys Corporation. This is just a press release
