The American Nursing Informatics Association (ANIA) is the association of professional nurses and associates who:
Are committed to their specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge and wisdom in nursing and informatics practice
Identify informatics practice as a specialty that is essential to the delivery of high quality, and cost-effective health care
Are committed to their professional development and seek to actively engage in a community of like-minded professionals
Use informatics to improve the health of populations, communities, families and individuals by optimizing information management and communication (ANA, 2008*) ANIA
ANIA Mission: To advance nursing informatics through education, research, and practice in all roles and settings.
ANIA Vision: To be the organization of choice to advance nursing informatics.
ANIA is an organization originally founded in 1982 as the Capital Area Roundtable on Informatics in Nursing (CARING). CARING was developed and organized by nurses in 1982 as a non-profit undertaking to provide a forum for the advancement of automated healthcare information systems.
In 1992 the American Nursing Informatics Association was formed in Southern California to provide networking, education and information resources that enrich and strengthen the roles of nurses in the field of informatics.
The idea of a merger between the two organizations (ANIA and CARING) began in 2005 with discussions between both Boards of Directors. In 2007 the organizations held their first joint annual conference and officially merged in 2010. After much thought and discussion, the Board of Directors proposed to change the official organization name to the “American Nursing Informatics Association” (ANIA) with a logo tagline of “where caring and technology meet.” This name change retains the history of both organizations with an easily recognizable and intuitive national name for future growth. For more information on the background of ANIA, visit our History section.
Membership has broadened to include an estimated 3,000 nurses and other healthcare professionals in informatics practice and includes roles in: system design and implementation, education, research (analysis and evaluation), standards and policy development, quality improvement, as well as those in management and administration.
Today, membership is open to nurses and other professionals interested in informatics nursing. Corporations and individual corporate representatives are also welcomed as members.
Healthcare generates vast amounts of big data. Organizations are actively seeking solutions that will unlock the true potential of this data and turn it into actionable tools that will change the landscape of healthcare.

Who We Are
TEDMED is the independent health and medicine edition of the world-famous TED conference, dedicated to “ideas worth spreading.” TED Talks have been viewed online over two billion times around the world. TEDMED is a non-profit that is wholly owned by The TEDMED Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Public Charity.
Created by TED’s founder, TEDMED convenes and curates extraordinary people and ideas from all disciplines both inside and outside of medicine in pursuit of unexpected connections that accelerate innovation in health and medicine. Best known for our annual event, TEDMED is a year-round global community.
What We Do
TEDMED bridges the gap between science and the public by finding and sharing stories that inform, inspire, engage and provoke action across a broad, passionate community both inside and outside of health and medicine. TEDMED values inclusiveness, multi-disciplinary collaboration and diversity in its mission to catalyze a healthier world.
Our annual event brings the world together to focus on what’s new and important in health and medicine. We forge partnerships with industry leaders, medical research institutions, think tanks, government agencies and foundations, to ensure that cutting-edge biomedical thinking, innovation in healthcare and large scale global public health opportunities are shared across disciplines and made accessible to the public at large.
Year-round, TEDMED engages a community of dedicated change-makers in dynamic conversations through social media, TEDMED Talks and a variety of programmatic efforts leveraging dynamic partnerships.
A healthy society is everyone’s business. That’s why TEDMED speakers are thought leaders and accomplished individuals from every sector of society, both inside and outside of medicine. Whether they come from science, business, academia, government, law, media or the arts – whether they are doctors, patients or Muppets – the extraordinary voices of the TEDMED stage unlock our imaginations. They inspire new thinking that can lead to a healthier world.
A single session of TEDMED might include a Nobel Prize-winning researcher, a dance troupe, a health activist, a venture capitalist and a brilliant young medical student. Each is selected because they have an amazing story to share…and a different way of looking at the world.
