About this book

Health Information Systems: Architectures and Strategies is a definitive introductory resource that tackles the pivotal role of information systems in health care. Illustrating the importance of information systems in delivering high-quality health care at the lowest possible cost, this book provides the essential resources needed by the health informatics / medical informatics specialist to understand and successfully manage the complex nature of hospital and transinstitutional health information systems. The book refines concepts described in the Editors’ previous book Strategic Information Management in Hospitals and considers both the progress in the field and also the lessons learned. Perception of information systems in health care has changed. There is no longer a focus only on single institutions like hospitals, but health care institutions within health care networks come to the fore. In producing this new book, the Editors have broadened the focus from hospital information systems and their strategic management to strategic management of transinstitutional health information systems.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Health Information Systems appears to be directed at teaching the building blocks and constructs of information systems used for managing health care. … It is descriptive, analytical, and well written … . Given the rapid increase in use of hospital information systems and the demand for skills in building, supporting, and understanding such systems, Health Information Systems: Architectures and Strategies is a timely book. … it teaches readers without health care experience about the complexity of medical information.” (David Chou, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (12), 2011)
