Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary A. Curran, RN, PhD (University of North Carolina-Charlotte)
Description: This handbook is a comprehensive overview of information technology in healthcare.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide a comprehensive source to educate nurses and other healthcare professionals about computer applications in healthcare. This feat is accomplished by presenting the combined expertise of several active practitioners.
Audience: The intended audience includes nurses and other healthcare professionals "who need to learn how to adapt and use computer applications in the workplace." Others who might find the book beneficial are those interested in preparing for the nursing informatics certification exam.
Features: The book is arranged in three sections. Chapters in Section I include content generic to all information systems. In Section II considerations for healthcare information systems are covered, and in Section III more in-depth discussion on three relevant and timely specialty applications is provided. Three appendixes also add content. Two of these supplements contain well done, but more mundane resources, like an introduction to the Internet (Appendix A) and a list of Internet resources (Appendix C). However, Appendix B offers less common content (career resources on the Internet) that may generate some new considerations about information technology.
Assessment: This is a book to use and recommend to others. On a few occasions the content tends to lose focus and clarity. However, taken as a whole, the book is a succinct but useful resource for understanding computers and information technology found in healthcare settings on a daily basis: a needed perspective for healthcare professionals.
