– ProtoView Book Abstracts (formerly Book News, Inc.)

The purpose of this book is twofold: provide an in-depth discussion of issues surrounding technology and ways to incorporate ever-changing technology into health education. The ultimate goal is the promotion of health for all people. [...] The author's premise that technology is a determinant of health and that technology's role is to improve societal health, is worthy of attention. This book differs from typical health informatics publications in that it provides a variety of specific topics.
