Manila, Philippines (June 29, 2010) -- The Philippine Nursing Informatics Association (PNIA) took its first step to be recognized as a sub-specialty organization when it paid a courtesy call to the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) at the PNA National Headquarters in Malate yesterday.
"This is a very timely action," lauded Dr. Teresita I. Barcelo, PNA national president, to the officers of PNIA on formally organizing an association specializing in the field of nursing informatics. "Nursing informatics is only of the emerging fields in nursing."
The Philippine Nursing Informatics Association was established earlier this year with a vision of advancing nursing informatics in the Philippines through practice, education, research, and public awareness.
"We wanted to formally introduce PNIA as an organization to PNA," expressed PNIA president Kristian R. Sumabat. "PNIA acknowledges the Philippine Nurses Association as the mother-organization of nurses in the country which provides guidance and direction to the future of Filipino nurses here and abroad."
"We also intend to know and understand the recognition process of a sub-specialty organization and solicit words of advice on possible projects and activities that PNA can hold independently and in partnership with PNA."
Dr. Barcelo welcomed PNIA as an organization and was keen to note that the officers are pursuing post-graduate degrees in health informatics and are working in the health informatics industry. She also encouraged the officers to finish their master's degree, continuously gain more experience, and be part of the academe.
The interim officers of the Philippine Nursing Informatics Association are the following: Kristian R. Sumabat (President) and Mia Angelica Alcantara-Santiago (Vice President) are both Clinical Systems Analysts of St. Luke's Medical Center - Global City and Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI) students at the University of the Philippines in Manila; Pia Athena L. Pelayo (Secretary) is the Phil-ETB Manager for the Information System for Tuberculosis at the Department of Health's National Epidemiology Center (NEC) and a former telehealth nurse at the UP Manila National Telehealth Center (UP NThC); Alexandra Belle S. Bernal (Assistant Secretary) is currently an OR nurse at the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) and also a former telehealth nurse at UP NThC; Isidor F. Cardenas (Treasurer) is the Coordinator for Telehealth Services (including eLearning, and eMedicine) at the UP NThC; Noel A. Bañez (Auditor) works as the Coordinator for Primary Health Care Informatics and the Community Health Information Tracking System (CHITS) at the UP NThC; Sheryl M. Ochea (Public Relations Officer I) worked as a renal nurse and finished her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) - Information System at Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A., and Arturo M. Ongkeko, Jr. (Public Relations Officer II) is the Coordinator for Knowledge Management at the UP NThC.
Sumabat also presented a copy of PNIA's Constitution and By-Laws; and organizational profile to Dr. Barcelo.
Founded in 1922, the Philippine Nurses Association is the only accredited professional organization recognized by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).
"We welcome online members such as registered nurses or student nurses interested in nursing informatics to be part of this historic undertaking and enlist as Founding Members of PNIA," Sumabat said. Interested individuals may sign-up at http://tinyurl.com/joinpnia.
