Book Description

This book explores how clinicians, patients, information technology (IT) experts and other professionals are collaborating to support high-value care using information technology in a multitude of settings: hospitals, insurance companies, laboratories, medical offices, patients’ homes, pharmacies, and public health departments. Developed for those training in academic centers as well as for those already "out in the field", this book looks at how attorneys, behavioral health experts, business development experts, chief information officers, chief medical officers, chief nursing information officers, consumer advocates, cryptographic experts, futurists, geneticists, informaticists, managed care executives, nurses, pharmacists, physicians, public health professionals, software developers, systems security officers and workforce experts are collaborating on a 'team-based,' IT-enabled approach to improve healthcare. It is also an excellent resource for those seeking to address concerns about equity, health IT usability, interoperability, safety, and security.

A unique aspect of this book is that public health emergencies such as health inequality and pandemics are addressed by authors who not only have academic and administrative experience but have also provided frontline care during the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
