In truth, the vernacular of contemporary medical information systems is unique, and often misused or misunderstood Moreover, an emerging national Heath Information Technology (HIT) architecture; in the guise of terms, definitions, acronyms, abbreviations and standards; often puts the non-expert medical, nursing, public policy administrator or paraprofessional in a position of maximum uncertainty and minimum productivity The Dictionary of Health Information Technology and Security will therefore help define, clarify and explain...You will refer to it daily."
