Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: This second edition provides an overview of how information systems are being used in today's healthcare industry.
Purpose: This book examines the strengths and weaknesses of many information systems in use today. The author uses system theory and the systems perspective to examine data systems and subsystems and system development methodologies.
Audience: The audience includes practitioners in health information management and technology positions as well as students of health management information systems theory. The author is a well-respected professor at the University of British Columbia. Chapter contributors are healthcare practitioners and professors in health management systems and information technology positions.
Features: Key revisions in this second edition include a more practice-based approach, the use of scenarios at the start of each chapter, revision of entire chapters to fill the need for an expanded knowledge and understanding of issues affecting the strategic, tactical, and operational implementation of a health management information system (HMIS). The five major parts are an overview of HMIS, building HMIS information architecture, integrating HMIS technology architecture, issues related to managing HMIS domain and control architecture, and HMIS case studies.
Assessment: The streamlining and integration of related concepts from various chapters in the previous edition makes this second edition an all new book. There is a good mixture of information management technology with domain and control architecture. The editor and authors write based on real life experiences and use them to illustrate HMIS applications in healthcare facilities. The book is a comprehensive text for the classroom, but just as easily it can serve as a vital reference for the HMIS professional.
A textbook for students going into health-care management, explaining the current technologies being used to process information in the field. In his revision of the 1995 first edition, Tan (health policy and management, U. of British Columbia) uses a more practice-based approach, adds scenarios to improve the understanding of concepts, provides case studies at the end of each chapters, and streamlines and integrates related concepts. The case studies are contributed by other professionals and academics, most from the US. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
