Transforming Health Care Through Information draws upon the experience of the foremost experts in medical informatics to address the complex challenges faced when healthcare organizations implement technological changes.
With the growth of information and focus on Healthcare Informatics, there remains an interest in case studies. In the current field of Health Informatics there is no other text that uses case studies to explain the difficulties that occur. Edited by specialists in the field of Health Informatics, this edition of Transforming Healthcare Through Information: Case Studies builds upon the specific examples of case studies to exemplify the various phases of introducing technological advancements into healthcare institutions.
The new edition includes a section on how to implement Link2care, a system that will allow caregivers of ill patients, to seek reliable and informative online information and support.
In addition the cases will be framed under new sections with discussion on new topics in the area of healthcare technology such as quality data management and knowledge management. The case studies described in this edition will benefit not only the practicing professional but also the instructor and student studying in the field of health informatics.
This collection of case reports and stories, some more formal than others, contribute to the evolving framework of understanding of clinical informatics, thereby helping practitioners in the field become better able to pursue their own trials and tribulations with informatics projects, and contribute their own experiences to the framework.
The demand for information systems in healthcare has increased, but informatics solutions are not always foolproof and may result in unintended consequences or workarounds, highlighting the challenges of implementation and reinforcing the need for a book such as this. Contributions include:
