An Introduction to Healthcare Informatics: Building Data-Driven Tools (PDF) bridges the gap between the current healthcare Information technology (IT) landscape and cutting edge technologies in cloud infrastructure, data science, artificial intelligence and application development. IT encompasses several rapidly evolving areas, however, healthcare as a field suffers from a relatively archaic technology landscape and a lack of curriculum to effectively train its millions of practitioners in the skills they need to use data and related tools.
The ebook discusses topics such as data analysis, data access, big data current landscape and application architecture. Additionally, it encompasses a discussion on future developments in this growing field. This ebook provides nurses, physicians, and health scientists with the concepts and skills necessary to work with analysts and IT professionals and even perform analysis and application architecture themselves.
- Brings diagrams for each example and technology describing how they operate individually as well as how they fit into a larger reference architecture built upon throughout the textbook
- Presents case-based learning relevant to healthcare, bringing each concept accompanied by an example which becomes critical when explaining the function of SQL, databases, basic models etc.
- Explains healthcare-specific stakeholders and the management of analytical projects within healthcare, allowing healthcare practitioners to successfully navigate the political and bureaucratic challenges to implementation
- Provides a roadmap for implementing modern technologies and design patterns in a healthcare setting, helping the reader to understand both the archaic enterprise systems that often exist in hospitals as well as emerging tools and how they can be used together.
