The most up-to-date edition of the gold standard in health care information system references
In the newly revised Fifth Edition of Health Care Information Systems, veteran healthcare information management experts and educators Karen A. Wager and Frances Wickham Lee, along with nationally-recognized leader in health information technology, John P. Glaser, deliver a one-stop resource for graduate and upper-level undergraduate students to gain the knowledge and develop the skills they need to manage information and information systems technology in the new healthcare environment.
The latest edition sees its focus shift from the adoption of health care information systems and electronic health records to making effective use of health care data, information, and systems and optimizing their impact. New additions to this celebrated text include:
Explorations of how health care information systems and information technology can be used to support national quality initiatives, value-based payment, population health management, and precision health and quality reporting
Discussions of how issues like interoperability, electronic health record usability, and health IT safety are being (or not being) addressed
Treatments of the roles played by data governance and analytics in clinical decision making and healthcare operations.
Filled with case studies, supplemental resources, and engaging examinations of critical areas in health care information system use, management, implementation, and support, Health Care Information Systems is an ideal reference for students taking courses in business administration, public health, health administration, medicine, health informatics and health care management.
