Description & Coverage
Description:

Healthcare is significantly affected by technological advancements, as technology both shapes and changes health systems locally and globally. As areas of computer science, information technology, and healthcare merge, it is important to understand the current and future implications of health informatics.

Healthcare and the Effect of Technology: Developments, Challenges and Advancements bridges the gap between today's empirical research findings and healthcare practice. It provides the reader with information on current technological integrations, potential uses for technology in healthcare, and the implications—both positive and negative—of health informatics for one's health. Technology in healthcare can improve efficiency, make patient records more accessible, increase professional communication, create global health networking, and increase access to healthcare. However, it is important to consider the ethical, confidential, and cultural implications technology in healthcare may impose. That is what makes this book is a must-read for policymakers, human resource professionals, management personnel, as well as for researchers, scholars, students, and healthcare professionals.

Reviews and Testimonials

The book examines current developments and challenges in the incorporation of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in the health system from the vantage point of patients, providers, and researchers. The authors take an objective, realistic view of the shift that will result for patients, providers, and the healthcare industry in general from the increased use of eHealth services, summarizing both the beneficial and potentially detrimental changes, and outline ways to insure maximum benefit while ensuring that the integrity and quality of patient care is not sacrificed.
