Description

Clinical Informatics Literacy: 5000 Concepts That Every Informatician Should Know is about all aspects of clinical informatics, a subset of the larger field of biomedical informatics. Clinical Informatics is an applied field that exists at the intersection of the fields of medicine, computer science, information science, anthropology, human factors engineering, cognitive psychology and health services research. As such informaticians are required to have an extremely broad understanding of a considerable swath of the fields at the heart of the health-oriented knowledge economy.

The author has collected and explained each one of the relevant concepts during his experience of 27 years working with many of the leaders in the field of clinical informatics at several of the leading academic healthcare institutions around the USA. The author’s experience and his didactic approach make this book an essential source of information for all participants in the clinical informatics field.
