Consumer Informatics Book Review:

This series is directed to healthcare professionals who are leading the trans formation of health care by using information and knowledge. Launched in 1988 as Computers in Health Care, the series offers a broad range of titles: some addressed to specific professions such as nursing, medicine, and health administration; others to special areas of practice such as trauma and radiol ogy. Still other books in the series focus on interdisciplinary issues, such as the computer-based patient record, electronic health records, and networked healthcare systems. Renamed Health Informatics in 1998 to reflect the rapid evolution in the discipline now known as health informatics, the series will continue to add titles that contribute to the evolution of the field. In the series, eminent ex perts, serving as editors or authors, offer their accounts of innovations in health informatics. Increasingly, these accounts go beyond hardware and soft ware to address the role of information in influencing the transformation of healthcare deli very systems around the world. The series also increasingly focuses on "peopleware" and the organizational, behavioral, and societal changes that accompany the diffusion of information technology in health services environments.

Emerging Technologies in Healthcare Book Review:

Recent changes in healthcare delivery as mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are forcing providers to focus on technology as a way to improve the health of the population, while engaging patients and encouraging them to take accountability for maintaining their own health. One way of doing this is through the use of mobile health (mhealth) technologies that allow physicians to monitor patients in real time and access important medical records from anywhere. Connecting millions of patients with caregivers like never before, mhealth technology is changing healthcare delivery for good. Emerging Technologies in Healthcare provides detailed descriptions of the latest mhealth technologies. It outlines the role of mhealth for self-care and remote care and describes the differences between telemedicine, telehealth, and telecare. The book justifies the use of mhealth technology for meeting regulatory standards of care and explains how analytics and social media are being used to improve the delivery of healthcare. It addresses healthcare reform and risk management in healthcare and concludes by discussing future directions for healthcare technologies. The book is written by a leader in the application of analytics in the healthcare industry. Her extensive background in nursing and hospital administration provides her with the opportunity to share unique insights on how to apply technology and innovation to improve the management of today’s healthcare systems.

Organizational Aspects of Health Informatics Book Review:

It has become obvious in recent years that successfully introducing major new systems into complex medical organizations requires an effective blend of good technical and organizational skills. The technically best system may be woefully inadequate if its implementation is resisted by people who have low psychological ownership in that system. On the other hand, people with high ownership can make a technically mediocre system function fairly well. ORGANIZATIONAL ASPECTS OF HEALTH INFORMATICS focuses on both the successful strategies for implementation of information systems with medical organizations and also on effective management strategies for the altered organization once the new systems are in place.
