    Dear Members,

    On behalf of the officers of the Ohio Chapter of ANIA we would like to THANK all of you for what you are doing every day during these difficult and challenging times. We know you are making a difference at your organization, positively impacting the patients and families you serve. You are being an advocate, utilizing your informatics skills to provide tools for our clinicians. 

    During this time we recognize that your priority is your work and family and we are putting our upcoming programming on hold. We look forward to getting this in full gear once we get back to some form of “normalcy”. With this said, please take advantage of our discussion boards to share what you are doing to meet the crisis at hand - how are you adapting and utilizing technology to meet the needs of our constituents. 

    Stay strong and healthy – we will get through this and there is light at the end of the tunnel, just not sure when that is. Please practice social distancing.

  • Clinical Informatics Resources for COVID-19

    Dear all,

    Some helpful information on Clinical Informatics Resources for COVID-19: 


    “Members of the nursing informatics community, including members of AMIA NI-WG, AAN ITEP, HIMSS NI, and other organizations, with sponsorship from ANIA, have created a web page for information and resources focused on clinical and nursing informatics aspects of the COVID-19 response. You can use this resource by visiting: We have a lot of material that our content team will be loading over the next few days – tips from hard-hit areas, copies of SOPs, etc... and information on webinars, etc... It is all public – you don't need any kind of membership or log in – the idea is to work across organizations and groups. You can help your colleagues across the world by sending field reports, tips, and other helpful information for posting to and a member of the content team will facilitate posting.

     Thanks and stay healthy!    Mollie Cummins”
