Evelyn's career began in earnest in the late 1970s with nursing, then progressed into public sector health administration, health service management and workstudy during the 1980s, followed by applied research, policy analysis, health and nursing informatics, consulting as a company director and finally in 1993 she entered academe at Central Queensland University, first as a senior lecturer and since 2003 as a Professor delivering and promoting Health Informatics education and research. Evelyn's area of consulting expertise, now spanning nearly 20 years, is in the conduct of hospital productivity reviews consisting primarily of the study of nursing work using both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Evelyn developed the Patient Assessment and Information System (PAIS) nursing workload monitoring system during the early 1980s and a Universal Career Evaluation System (UNCES) during the early 1990s.
Evelyn's interest in informatics began in the late 1970s when she undertook a course in computer science. She has actively provided leadership and contributed to various professional organizations since the early 1980s, including the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA). Evelyn's personal vision of improving health through the best possible use of information and communication technologies has shaped Evelyn's subsequent career path. Her networking skills and strong commitment to this vision resulted in her being a foundation board member of the Health Informatics Society of Australia, initiator of the annual National Health Informatics Conferences (HIC) and more recently a foundation Fellow of the newly established Australian College of Health Informatics. Evelyn initiated the publishing of the first Australian text on Health Informatics by Churchill Livingstone, Melbourne in 1996.
She is a foundation member of the Standards Australia IT/14 health informatics committee, serves on two technical sub committees and represents this committee as a member of the National ICT Standards Committee, and the National Health Data Standards Committee. She initiated and collaboratively directed an international effort to develop a new ISO standard for the integration of a reference terminology model for nursing.

Evelyn Hovenga's research and teaching interests include electronic health records, work study in the health services, performance measurement, health service management, nursing resource usage, casemix plus health and nursing outcomes in conjunction with health and nursing informatics, terminology, decision support. Evelyn's PhD research was in casemix, and hospital nursing resource usage and costs. The resultant patient classification/nursing workload measurement system was adopted by more than 100 Australian hospitals between 1984 and 2004. Evelyn is a foundation member of the Standards Australia IT/14 health informatics committee and serves on two technical sub-committees and represents this committee as a member of the National Health Data Standards Committee. She initiated and collaboratively directed an international effort to develop a new ISO standard for the integration of a reference terminology model for nursing. Compliance with this standard ensures that a clinical information system is able to accommodate nursing concepts. This work was supported by the IMIA Nursing Informatics group and the International Council of Nurses. Evelyn contributes to many standards development projects overseen by Standards Australia International (SAI) IT/14, IT/14/9 and IT/14/2 committees. Many of these projects contribute to standards work items undertaken by health informatics committees from the European standards organization (CEN TC251), the International Organisation of Standards (ISO/TC215) and HL7. Evelyn was elected to represent IT/14 as a member of the national Health Data Standards Committee (HDSC) whose work focuses primarily on the maintenance, revision and development of the National Health Data Dictionary now also used as the repository of data standards to support electronic health records development in Australia . The HDSC also has responsibility for overseeing the work of the Classifications and Terminology Working Group. Evelyn is a founding member of the open EHR Clinical Review Board responsible for Archetype Governance and a development process framework promoting Archetype standardisation. Evelyn participated in the Australian Health Information Council's workforce capacity building sub-group and contributed to the development of the National Statement outlining a vision for the health informatics capacity of the workforce and detailing priorities of action in the areas of leadership, education and research. Similarly, Evelyn was a key contributor to the development of a white paper, a Roadmap for Nursing Informatics in Australia, commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. Evelyn chairs the Medinfo 2007 Organising Committee managing the 12th World Congress on medical informatics hosted by HISA under the auspices of IMIA, to be held in Brisbane , August 2007. Evelyn is Founding Editor-in-Chief of eJHI - the electronic Journal of Health Informatics (http://www.ejhi.net). She has served as an editorial team member for the International Journal of Medical Informatics for several years, and reviews papers for a number of other journals. Evelyn is Fellow and Past President of the Australian College of Health Informatics, Fellow of the Australian College of Health Service Executives, Fellow of the Royal College of Nursing Australia, Fellow of the Australian Computer Society, and Chair of its Health Informatics Committee, past Vice-President (Working and Special Interest Groups) of the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA).
