Building on its commitment to increase consumers’ engagement in their health care decisions, the American Nurses Association (ANA) first is seeking to ensure that registered nurses (RNs) use their own personal health information to improve their health.

The pledge ANA is requesting RNs to sign is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology’s (ONC) Consumer Campaign to involve and empower consumers in their health management through the use of information technology. The pledge asks RNs to obtain their personal health records from their health care providers, develop or maintain the records online, and use those  records to make decisions about their own health.
