Throughout the evolution of health care and public health, there has been a lack of robust Health Information Systems (HIS). The vast majority of those working in health care and public health at all levels do not understand the basics of HIS. Likewise, many experienced information technology (IT) professionals do not understand the application of HIS to health care or public health. Essentials of Health Information Systems offers a basic but thorough explanation of health information systems (HIS) to students at undergraduate and early graduate levels. Designed for faculty who may or may not be familiar with the topic, this book will provide your students with a foundation for understanding not only what they need to do in their health care careers, but also an understanding of the vast frontier that lies before us as we evolve to the next phase of use of these tools to support improved methods of care, analytics, policy, research and public health. The book?s structure is based on a conceptual model depicting the layers that emerge from the foundation of HIS. The book?s sections and chapters are organized according to this conceptual view, to show the relationship and dependencies between each phase of development of HIS. This comprehensive conceptual framework designed to provide an understanding of why and how HIS matters to health care and public health. Section 1: Understanding Health Information Systems Section 2: Systems and Management Section 3: Biomedical Informatics
