In 2010, Texas Nurses Association stepped up efforts to enable the use of informatics in nursing practice and education in Texas for the sake of safer, higher quality patient care. The TNA Board of Directors created a Health Information Technology (HIT) Task Force and in concert with the Texas Organization of Nurse Executives (TONE) appointed members from each organization to serve, among them some of Texas’ noted nursing informaticists.

The task force as charged set about to build on the 2004 work of the national TIGER initiative of nurse stakeholders to develop a shared vision, strategies and actions for using HIT to improve patient care. TIGER is an acronym for Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform.

In 2012, the HIT Task Force offered the nurses of Texas a multi-part educational series, Nurses: Are You Ready for Your New Role in Health Information Technology? Five, free webinars sponsored by TNA and TONE headlined the series. Interest and attendance have been outstanding.
