Historically, informatics was considered as a technology for automating clinical decision making and processes. This book views informatics as a transforming technology, one that alters the structure of clinical processes and broader health organizations. It explores the use of health information technology from a systems perspective. The traditional three-pronged informatics model cellular, clinical, and population is expanded to include dynamic systems, which adds to and alters previous conceptions.

This text integrates the medical, nursing, and healthcare IT professions. Its primary audience is graduate and professional students.

Fifteen evidenced-based cases are used through the text to illustrate each chapter s concepts. Each chapter includes learning objectives, presents key concepts, and discussion questions.

  • The application and function of electronic medical records
