Health Outcomes for Better Information and Care (HOBIC), a program funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, introduces a collection of evidence-based clinical outcome measures reflective of nursing care. The authors report on an evaluation of the experiences of nurse early adopters of HOBIC in home care. The findings reveal challenges and nuances associated with the introduction of HOBIC and the use of supporting technologies in the delivery of home nursing care. Future implementation efforts should focus on optimizing the usability of technology and the usefulness of HOBIC in nursing practice. In addition, efforts need to be directed at supporting the full integration and use of HOBIC outcome data by nurses and management personnel to inform practice directions.

Résultats dans le domaine de la santé pour l'amélioration de l'information et des soins (RSAIS) [Health Outcomes for Better Information and Care (HOBIC)], un programme financé par le ministère de la Santé et des Soins de longue durée de l'Ontario, introduit un ensemble de mesures de résultats cliniques fondés sur des données probantes et reflétant les réalités vécues dans le domaine des soins infirmiers. Les auteures font état d'une évaluation des expériences vécues par le personnel infirmier ayant participé au programme RSAIS dès ses débuts, en contexte de soins à domicile. Les résultats ont révélé la présence de nuances et de défis associés à l'introduction du RSAIS et l'utilisation de technologies d'appui dans le cadre de la prestation de soins infirmiers à domicile. Les futurs efforts de mise en œuvre doivent chercher à optimiser la convivialité de la technologie et l'utilité du RSAIS dans la pratique infirmière. D'autres efforts doivent être déployés pour soutenir la pleine intégration et l'utilisation maximale des données de résultats par le personnel infirmier et les gestionnaires en vue d'étayer les orientations en matière de pratique.
