Integrating Healthcare with Information and Communications Technology

Front Cover
Wendy Currie, David Finnegan
Radcliffe Publishing, 2009 - Medical - 274 pages
This book sets out to answer the key question of how healthcare providers can move from a fragmented to an integrated provision, including how ICT be used to develop a market approach - variety and choice of service providers for patients - against a background of institutionalised and ingrained practices. A team of academic and practitioner experts with many years' healthcare and research experience considers the broad issues of transforming healthcare using ICTs, electronic health records (EHRs), and approaches taken internationally to the healthcare integration challenge. The book will be essential reading for those involved in ICTs at a strategic or managerial level, and for contractors and developers implementing solutions on their behalf. The book will also be of interest for all those concerned with integrating healthcare and ICT at every level throughout the world.
