Connecting Nurses launches Information Shareapy an online Nursing Community to share quality health content

Information shareapy www.information-shareapy.com puts patient care information at nurses’ fingertips

Today on April 9, 2013 : Connecting Nurses* launches Information shareapy www.information-shareapy.com   a unique online patient care platform built by nurses for nurses, for the benefit of  patients and their families.

Connecting Nurses is an initiative for nurses developped by Sanofi

Information shareapy is a repository of practice tips, advice, and best practice information gleaned by nurses in practice to share with one another and enhance quality patient care. Nurses from around the world are invited to participate in the international community. By uploading and sharing links on the platform, every single nurse can make patient support tools and materials available to their peers.

The Information shareapy international community is made up of nurses. The platform is password protected and the professional status of each member is required to protect this professional space.

In addition to their individual participation, nurses can choose to follow Key Opinion Leaders representing ICN1, SIDIIEF2, NPHF3 and AFDET4, or active community members. They can also track particular topics which helps in organizing and sharing relevant content quickly.

Nurses around the world share the core values of the profession:  caring, service to others, and promoting health.   In addition, textbooks, journals and conferences have provided a basic level of shared information resources for the profession.  However, until now, nurses have not had a mechanism for sharing the expertise that is developed in day-to-day Nursing practice.  This practice expertise is a rich resource that is invaluable in patient care,” said Phyllis Zimmer, President of the Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation (NPHF).  “Information ShareapyTM is a an ideal innovative digital tool to facilitate the exchange of best practices across a world-wide nursing community. In this way, it is our hope that Information ShareapyTM will expand Nursing’s capacity to serve patients around the globe. ”

By uploading and sharing links via Information shareapy , every single nurse can make available patient support  tools and materials to their peers. Feedback (likes, comments) can be provided so that most used tools can be ranked and become more readily identifiable.

Sanofi and its partnering nurse organizations thank every single nurse for their kind input, their personal contributions and feedback, and their support in making Information shareapy a living and growing platform, serving our common interest of contributing to constantly enhancing and evolving patient care through innovative digital communication.
