Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rose, MD (Private Practice)
Description: This is a nice addition to the Springer Health Informatics Series covering health information technology (IT) infrastructure, and the use of information systems in healthcare.
Purpose: The purpose is to review fundamental elements of IT use in healthcare, and the potential impacts of clinical information systems to positively impact medical enterprises.
Audience: Although aimed at health practitioners, this is a very sophisticated collection of work most suited for more seasoned (not novice) healthcare business and IT professionals. It is nicely illustrated and accentuated with healthcare histories.
Features: Issues of IT infrastructure and important issues of information management in clinical business are covered in this text. The chapters that cover reaping benefits in IT expenditures are strong, and the whole book is nicely edited. This is a timely publication.
Assessment: This is a very nice, diverse, well-constructed, and broad approach to the fundamentals of IT in clinical settings. Balanced and beyond the simple introductory level, this book is an even-handed reference and a nice read. It is quite pertinent, and while not comprehensive, it is quite worthwhile for clinicians and managers seeking education in health informatics.
