I have long lamented the loss of the essence of nursing care in the age of bedside computers, drop-down menus in electronic health records (EHRs), survey-based patient satisfaction instruments, and the use of quantitative methods in nursing research ("Advocating for HIT That Captures Nursing Process," Viewpoint, November 2019). Simply stated, it is virtually impossible to capture nursing using these practices! This is not to say that these practices aren't relevant or important to patient care-but they have been wholeheartedly accepted without thinking about what is lost in the process. I fear that in the age of big data, quality nursing care is at great risk.
