As medical technology advances and the number of users across different mediums increases, how do we continually shape medical education and practice to meet the needs of these users?

Clinical Solutions and Medical Progress through User-Driven Healthcare provides comprehensive coverage and understanding of clinical problem solving in healthcare. The term "user" includes health professionals, as well as patients and anyone who uses the web with a user name. These "users" generate an information flow that "drives" the system's workflow (hence, the choice of the term "driven"). "User-driven healthcare" aims at improved healthcare through clinical problem solving utilizing concerted experiential learning in conversations between multiple users and stakeholders, primarily patients, health professionals, and other actors in a care giving collaborative network across a web interface. Serving as a valuable source for information, this title is perfect for healthcare professionals, researchers, academic instructors, and students alike.
