Fully revised, Guide to Health Informatics, 3rd Edition, (PDF) remains essential reading for all clinical health professionals, health science undergraduates, and health service managers who need to understand and appreciate the role of informatics and its related technologies for optimal practice and service delivery.
This essential textbook offers a readable yet sophisticated overview of the fundamental concepts of information technologies as they apply in healthcare. Covering areas as diverse as the electronic medical record, protocols, searching, and communications as well as the Internet, Enrico Coiera has succeeded in making this complex and vast area understandable and accessible to the non-specialist, while offering everything that students of medical informatics need to know to complement their course.
“Timely. Comprehensive. Interesting. Readable. Beneficial as a textbook and/or reference. Relevant. Highly recommended, it is this reviewer’s opinion that this ebook is useful as a reference and textbook. It could easily serve the purpose as a primer for an undergraduate biomedical engineering elective course, followed by, if possible, an objective in database development. The text is highly pertinent to engineers working in medicine, and is therefore highly recommended.” — Paul. H. King, Ph.D., P.E, Vanderbilt University, IEEE Pulse
