Reviews and Testimonials
Contributors from health informatics, health management, and health policy explore the interplay between the three fields, specifically how health informatics can be used by health management and health policy researchers to solve pending problems in the health sector. The topics include investing in a rehabilitation model to improve the decision-making process in long-term care, implementing case costing with the Ontario Case Costing Initiative, geographical information systems and food systems analysis in public health policy, why differences in the iron-triangle of priorities make adopting and using health information technology difficult, and diabetes in Italy as a case study of how web 2.0 shapes patient knowledge sharing.

There is no comparable book on the market that uses exemplars to illustrate the use of informatics and how it relates to research and policy. This book will give budding researchers ideas for innovative studies and policy questions using technology.
