Health IT has transformed healthcare in a way that it would be difficult for any healthcare organization to sustain if it fails to adapt to such developments. Nurses have welcomed this change and continue to contribute to its successful implementation. Nevertheless, the true participation in system development remains an unmarked zone where nurses have not been engaged. Nurses are key professionals who should participate during implementation process. However, their role in software development has never been highlighted. To penetrate the healthcare sector in a coherent manner and to achieve the desirable goals in clinical setting, participation of nurses throughout the inception process is imperative. This article would highlight the need for role definition of nurses through different phases of software development in healthcare.
