HANDBOOK OF INFORMATICS FOR NURSES & HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS, 5/e is a complete and up-to-date overview of the key issues related to adoption and use of health information technology and nursing informatics, with detailed practical information to support students and professionals in the field. Intended to address all the concepts, skills, and tasks professionals need to achieve the nation's healthcare information technology goals, it contains three major sections: General Computer Information, Health Care Information Systems, and Specialty Applications. Major themes of privacy, confidentiality, and information security are woven throughout; project management is introduced in the context of strategic planning, and addressed in many other chapters. This edition contains extensive new coverage throughout, along with eight new chapters addressing issues such as Personal Health Records (PHRs), Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), usability, and consumer education.
