This comprehensive volume explores the evolving fields of consumer informatics and telemedicine as envisioned by the Institute of Medicine in its landmark reports on the electronic medical record, patient safety, and quality care. Each chapter describes the role of computers, technology, and telecommunications as enablers within a specific application focused on the needs of consumers. The applications covered are ones which empower consumers as they seek information, analyze their health care needs, and make decisions about their own health care. Such applications empower professionals in their efforts to serve patients, while increasing the knowledge of the consumer. Richly illustrated with detailed examples, this volume speaks to a wide range of audiences as it addresses issues raised by consumer informatics, the use of technology, research and development effects, and telemedicine. Chapter highlights include: Patient-Centered Communication; Using the Internet Toward Reliable Consumer Health Information; Disease Management and Home Telehealth; and Biothreats and Disaster Management. The book's audience includes all healthcare professionals, healthcare administrators, IT professionals, health informaticians, and students.
