Healthcare organizations are undergoing major reorganizations and adjustments to meet the increasing demands of improved healthcare access and quality, as well as lowered costs. As the use of information technology to process medical data increases, much of the critical information necessary to meet these challenges is being stored in digital format. Web-enabled information technologies can provide the means for greater access and more effective integration of healthcare information from disparate computer applications and other information resources.

Managing Healthcare Information Systems with Web-Enabled Technologies presents studies from leading researchers and practitioners focusing on the current challenges, directions, trends and opportunities associated with healthcare organizations and their strategic use of Web-enabled technologies.
