Ontario Nursing Informatics Group

ONIG (Ontario Nursing Informatics Group) provides members with opportunity to connect, share, and network with others interested in health informatics and eHealth. As an emerging field within healthcare, ONIG provides a range of education events across Ontario on a variety of topics related to technology, leadership, and healthcare. 


To do this, we typically provide online and virtual access to our education events via Ontario Telemedicine Network (to hospital centres) and also via their web-conferencing access.  Each year, ONIG hosts roughly three to five events, ranging in topics and purposes (e.g., education events, vendor fairs, strategic planning sessions).  


Do I need to be a member of RNAO to join ONIG?


While we encourage our members to join RNAO and support the work they do for Nurses in Ontario, it is not a prerequisite for membership.  We welcome all classes of RNs, RPNs, students, and retired nurses.


Do I need to be a Nurse?


Non-nurses are also encouraged to join and help broaden the depth of our membership.


An ONIG membership also provides a number of other benefits for individuals, including: 

  • reduced cost to attend face-to-face education and annual general meeting events;
  • the coming availability to post questions for the ONIG membership for assistance and other technical related questions;
  • networking and social opportunities with a range of healthcare, vendor, and industry partners; and,
  • notification of upcoming events that may be of interest to membership.
