Description : Previously published as Strategic Information Management in Hospitals; An Introduction to Hospital Information Systems, Health Information Systems Architectures and Strategies is a definitive volume written by four authoritative voices in medical informatics. Illustrating the importance of hospital information management in delivering high quality health care at the lowest possible cost, this book provides the essential resources needed by the medical informatics specialist to understand and successfully manage the complex nature of hospital information systems. Author of the first edition's Foreword, Reed M. Gardner, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Medical Informatics, University of Utah and LDS Hospital, Salt Lake City, Utah, applauded the text's focus on the underlying administrative systems that are in place in hospitals throughout the world. He wrote, "These challenging systems that acquire, process and manage the patient's clinical information. Hospital information systems provide a major part of the information needed by those paying for health care." their components; health information systems; architectures of hospital information systems; and organizational structures for information management.
Description : As health care and public health continue to evolve, the field of health information systems (HIS) has revealed an overwhelming universe of new, emerging, competing, and conflicting technologies and services. This book unravels the mysteries of HIS by breaking technologies down to their component parts, while articulating intricate concepts clearly and carefully in simple, reader-friendly language. It will provide undergraduate and early graduate students with a solid understanding not only of what is needed for a successful healthcare career in HIS, but also of the future as we develop new tools to support improved methods of care, analytics, policy, research, and public health. Contents include: HIS overview; systems and management; biomedical informatics; data and analytics; research, policy, and public health; future directions of HIS. --

This book provides a method of how to analyze, design and manage the applications of IT in a complex, evolving enterprise. It provides a vision for IT leaders with practical solutions for IT implementation.
Description : Covering the principles of HIS planning, cost effectiveness, waste reduction, efficiency,population health management, patient engagement, and prevention, this text is designed for those who will be responsible for managing systems and information in health systems and provider organizations.
Description : Healthcare information systems are crucial to the effective and efficient delivery of healthcare. Healthcare Information Systems: Challenges of the New Millennium reports on the implementation of medical information systems.
Description : This revised edition covers all aspects of public health informatics and discusses the creation and management of an information technology infrastructure that is essential in linking state and local organizations in their efforts to gather data for the surveillance and prevention. Public health officials will have to understand basic principles of information resource management in order to make the appropriate technology choices that will guide the future of their organizations. Public health continues to be at the forefront of modern medicine, given the importance of implementing a population-based health approach and to addressing chronic health conditions. This book provides informatics principles and examples of practice in a public health context. In doing so, it clarifies the ways in which newer information technologies will improve individual and community health status. This book's primary purpose is to consolidate key information and promote a strategic approach to information systems and development, making it a resource for use by faculty and students of public health, as well as the practicing public health professional. Chapter highlights include: The Governmental and Legislative Context of Informatics; Assessing the Value of Information Systems; Ethics, Information Technology, and Public Health; and Privacy, Confidentiality, and Security. Review questions are featured at the end of every chapter. Aside from its use for public health professionals, the book will be used by schools of public health, clinical and public health nurses and students, schools of social work, allied health, and environmental sciences.
Description : 'New Technologies in Hospital Information Systems' is launched by the European Telematics Applications Project 'Healthcare Advanced Networked System Architecture' (HANSA) with support of the GMDS WG Hospital Information Systems and the GMDS FA Medical Informatics. It contains 28 high quality papers dealing with architectural concepts, models and developments for hospital information systems. The book has been organized in seven sections: Reference Architectures, Modelling and Applications, The Distributed Healthcare Environment, Intranet Solutions, Object Orientation, Networked Solutions and Standards and Applications. The HANSA project is based upon the European Pre-standard for Healthcare Information System Architecture which has been drawn up by CEN/TC 251 PT01-13. The editors felt that this standard will have a major impact on future developments for hospital information systems. Therefore the standard is completely included as an appendix.
