Overview

The Computerization of Behavioral Healthcare offers practical and comprehensive information about the computer technologies and trAnds that directly influence the clinical practice, management, and communications of behavioral health care.The editors gathered experts in the fields of clinical practice, health care administration, technological change, and public policy to develop this extremely useful, understandable resource. In nontechnical terms, the contributors demonstrate how computers and networked information systems help to contain costs, measure and improve clinical outcomes, and make any behavioral healthcare organization or practice more competitive in the marketplace. In addition, they offer down-to-earth suggestions for overcoming human resistance, and making a smooth transition from a traditional paper system to a high-tech computer operation.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A much-needed resource for coping with the technological demands in the rapidly evolving field of behavioral health care."

"A book of major significance about the careful application of computers and information processing to finding solutions to the many challenges posed by the rapid movement toward managed behavioral health care." —Bruce W. Vieweg, M.S., director, Office of Information Systems, State of Missouri Department of Mental Health

"This pathbreaking book shows not only that it is unavoidable that computer science and telecommunication technology are entering the field of behavioral health, but that patients and their families, healthcare personnel and managers may look forward to this development." —W. Gulbinat, acting manager, epidemiological and managerial support, Division of Mental Health and the Prevention of Substance Abuse, World Health Organization

"An essential guide for mental health practitioners. A pioneering, must-read book for the 21st century clinician." —Steven E. Locke, M.D., chief of behavioral medicine, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and director of psychiatric informatics, Center for Clinical Computing, Harvard Medical School

"There is much in this book that is useful in each area ranging from a compAndium of Internet mental health conference lists to basic definitions of terminology to some subtly sophisticated information on clinical decision support systems (DSSs)." —Reviewed by Rodney L. Lowman, Contemporary Psychology

John S. Lyons
This book identifies and discusses many of the issues facing clinicians and administrators as behavioral healthcare becomes increasingly computerized. The book is divided into three parts. The first section is four chapters on clinical uses of computerized systems, covering such topics as decision support, outcome management, and computer-assisted therapy. The second section is five chapters focusing on management perspectives on computerization in various environments, including group practices, community mental health centers, and hospitals. The final section is four chapters on aspects of using computers to enhance communication. This book is intended to provide the reader with a broad set of perspectives on the implications for managed behavioral healthcare of the dramatic increase in computer access, power, and flexibility. As an all-purpose primer on these advances, the book succeeds in orienting the mental health service savvy reader to options for computer applications. The book provides summaries and critiques of some of the editing options in each area. The book also provides some useful hands-on direction in the chapters on such topics as managing transitions to a computerized system and using the Internet and bulletin boards. This book is likely to be most useful to mental health administrators and clinicians in group settings who are interested in rapidly ""getting up to speed"" on issues of computerization. The book assumes some prior knowledge of mental health services and administration. The book is fairly well referenced, and although there are not many illustrations and figures, those that are provided are clear and understandable. This book is well written andtimely. It offers an administrator in almost any organized setting a series of options and strategies for understanding and implementing computerization of behavioral healthcare. The book also offers clinicians thinking of organizing group practices with the tools needed to use computers to speed and simplify the process of getting organized. Although the book is broad in scope and many readers likely will prefer to pick and choose from among the chapters, almost all readers are likely to find helpful information presented in an enjoyable to read format.
