Healthcare Information Management Systems: Cases, Strategies, and Solutions 4th Edition
(NOT paper & print book, but an eBook in PDF Format!)
Healthcare Information Management Systems, 4th edition, is a comprehensive volume addressing the technical, organizational and management issues confronted by healthcare professionals in the selection, implementation and management of healthcare information systems. With contributions from experts in the field, this book focuses on topics such as strategic planning, turning a plan into reality, implementation, patient-centered technologies, privacy, the new culture of patient safety and the future of technologies in progress. With the addition of many new chapters, the 4th Edition is also richly peppered with case studies of implementation. The case studies are evidence that information technology can be implemented efficiently to yield results, yet they do not overlook pitfalls, hurdles, and other challenges that are encountered. Designed for use by physicians, nurses, nursing and medical directors, department heads, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, COOs, and healthcare informaticians, the book aims to be a indispensible reference.
This book provides a bold and honest description of the current state of electronic health record (EHR) technologies in acute and primary care settings, and looks at the future through the lens of emerging new technologies, changes in care delivery models and reimbursement policies.
This 4th Edition of Healthcare Information Management Systems: Cases, Strategies, and Solutions has been thoroughly updated, as concepts such as Meaningful Use (MU), interoperability, personalized medicine and health IT have had a considerable impact on patient safety and health outcomes. It outlines the issues of EHR adoption under MU and, as anticipated gains in efficiency, quality and costs have not always been seen, it also provides a framework within which solutions to the frustration, dissatisfaction, and growing concerns can be found. Many suggest that a technology sea change is needed with a second generation of EHRs developed on 21st century architectures that more closely match the flexibility and power of mobile and web-based applications available in the general marketplace.
Building on the success of its previous three editions, this book will guide healthcare professionals as they confront the technical, organizational, and management issues related to the selection, implementation, and management of healthcare information systems. It will contribute to taking us into a healthcare system that delivers value, is a pleasure to work within, and relieves the taxpayersâ burden.
