Preview

The American healthcare system is increasingly dependent on clinical informatics professionals to ensure that information technology contributes fully to measurably improve patient outcomes, enhance individual and organizational efficiency, and lower overall healthcare costs. Although the United States is the most expensive (per capita) healthcare system in the world, it ranks among the lowest in patient access and health outcomes. In the future, an aging population, complex comorbidities, family financial distress, changing cultural expectations, and unsustainable healthcare prices will necessitate a radically broader view of clinical care. Our technologies need to be optimally employed to promote health and support healthcare in a financially sustainable way. Clinical informatics is tasked with improving health outcomes while reducing costs. To realize these aims, clinical informatics must understand relationships among clinical care, workflows, technology, management, and public policy. This book provides an introduction to critical skills required of effective clinical informatics professionals.
