Message from ONIG President


Attention ONIG members:


The 2018 ONIG executive want our members to be aware of a change that RNAO has made in the last couple years. RNAO no longer shares with the interest groups the contact information of new, renewing or lapsed memberships and has stated this decision is in keeping with privacy legislation.   


We find this very alarming, as we are not only unable to contact new members for ONIG communications but we are not even aware who our new members are.  We are therefore very concerned that you may have signed up to ONIG as an interest group member and paid through RNAO but we have not been given your name or email and have been unable to contact you. We ask that if you have joined our interest group and not been receiving any ONIG communications to please contact us via email with your contact information to Membership@onig.on.ca


We are holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) Friday April 27th, 2018 (see web page for details) and we ask you to join us for an open discussion regarding this very serious concern and our future involvement with RNAO.


Thank you,

Nancy Cunningham

President ONIG

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.
