Editorial Reviews

The quality, safety, and affordability of US health care are serious concerns, and private- and public-sector entities have consistently advocated that an integral part of solving these problems is the adoption and use of electronic health record (EHR) systems. The second edition of Electronic Health Records: A Guide for Clinicians and Administrators is useful for anyone undecided about investing in an EHR system or who wishes to gain a comprehensive and up-to-date understanding of the increasing potential and issues associated with EHRs. The book provides sound advice and effectively mixes prose with figures and tables . . . an excellent resource for introductory courses on health care systems. Overall, this second edition of Electronic Health Records should be a key resource, recommended as a must for the bookshelf or library of persons or organizations contemplating adopting or updating an EHR system.
