About this book

IT in Pharmacy: An Integrated Approach aims to describe and discuss the major areas of pharmacy IT innovation (e-prescribing, drug databases, electronic patient records, clinical decision support, pharmacy management systems, robots and automation etc) from a systems and a professional perspective. It will also consider how the areas of pharmacy IT link together and can be used to enable and develop pharmacy professional practice. The book will examine pharmacy IT from an international perspective, taking into account all parts of the world where IT systems are used in pharmacy practice – namely – North America, the UK, Western Europe and Australia – and will compare pharmacy IT in the different regions. This book is from the author of Principles of Electronic Prescribing (Springer, 2008)

“This overview of the current state of pharmacy informatics discusses the applications and limitations of all aspects of this field, as well as opportunities for the future. … This book is intended for pharmacy students or residents. … This is a great learning tool, and should be used as part of a pharmacy curriculum.” (Shaun P. Walsh, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
