Editorial Reviews

US Medical Journal
"required reading for every physician intending to enter a fellowship program in medical informatics, and it is also highly recommended to every doctor and medical student interested in this emerging medical specialty".
British Medical Journal
"An elegant and lucid textbook......the vision implicit in Coiera's book is not merely of medical practice improved and assisted by computerised systems but of health care thoroughly transformed... Coiera provides, more successfully than his predecessors did, a textbook that identifies and explains the basic concepts that give substance to his definition of medical informatics. The clarity of his opening section gives the reader a firm understanding of abstractions such as models, information, and systems. This helps enormously in explaining issues such as the classification of clinical data and the representation of medical knowledge. It is because the book deals successfully with these issues that it can give a fair account of the potential and limitations of electronic patient records, telemedicine, and clinical decision systems. 4 stars(excellent). "
Cancer Nursing Journal
I believe that there is no other book on medical informatics that is as wide ranging or as readable as this one...Coiera has set out to give us a book which is both comprehensive and relevant to practical clinical work while being lively and widely accessible. In my judgment he has succeeded.
Informatics Medical New
"Finally: a textbook on medical informatics that is not profoundly soporific! ... Coiera writes in a conversational style that makes reading the textbook a pleasure...I recommend you read this book!"
British J Psychiatry
Most clinicians know very little about what computers could do and have therefore not been able to guide the development of systems down a clinical path. This book could help change that... I propose that in each hospital a staff member should take a special interest in IT and that a copy of this book be presented to them.
Booknews
Addressed to the general medical reader assumed to have little or no familiarity with medical informatics or technology. Provides an overview of the current state of information and communication technology in health care. Emphasizes their principled application and the importance of understanding when they are and are not appropriate. Also considers the emerging roles of the Internet and telemedicine.
