Dr. Carrington has spent 22 years in informatics as both an analyst and scientist. As an analyst, she built clinical systems and led quality improvement projects to implement technology and changes in workflow, guiding end-users towards adoption. These experiences defined her interest in leadership, change theories, and general principles of implementation. These experiences also informed her research exploring nurse-to-nurse communication using the electronic health record. Of particular interest is the communication about a patient who experiences a clinical event. Prior to her career in informatics, she was an advanced practice nurse in pediatric critical care when- technology, especially computers, were coming into the unit. Despite the potential benefits, there were many concerns with design and workflow. It was her desire to explore these questions that inspired her to enter informatics as a career.
