Overview

Knowledge Coupling discusses the premises upon which the coupling of knowledge to every action is based in the practice of medicine, as well as why these premises must change. In concrete terms, the volume explores the methods of structuring and using medical knowledge and medical records that enables implementation of new premises; it sets forth a specific approach to use of the computer. The work examines the new roles and skills that will be demanded of both patients and health care providers within the system based on these new premises. The author takes into account the broad implications of his philosophy for the social, economic, educational, and political structuring of the health care system.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The vision is Weed's, but he is joined by a number of contributors who write under the premise that caregivers are constantly trying to make decisions in the face of avoidable ignorance. This book offers a new set of tools--knowledge couplers--to initiate change in current healthcare philosophy and methodologies. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
