Informatics for Health Professionals is an excellent resource to provide healthcare students and professionals with the foundational knowledge to integrate informatics principles into practice.
The theoretical underpinning of this text is the Foundation of Knowledge model, which explains how informatics relates to knowledge acquisition, knowledge processing, knowledge generation, knowledge dissemination, and feedback. Once readers understand informatics and the way in which it supports practice, education, administration, and research, they can apply these principles to improve patient care at all levels.
Key content focuses on current informatics research and practice including but not limited to:
• Technology Trends
• Information Security Advances
• Health Information Exchanges
• Care Coordination
• Transition Technologies
• Ethical and Legislative Aspects
• Social Media Use
• Mobile Health
• Knowledge Management
• Data Mining, and more
Helpful learning tools include: case studies, provoking discussion questions, research briefs, and call outs on cutting-edge innovations, Meaningful Use, and patient safety.
INSTRUCTOR RESOURCES: Instructor's Manual, Slides in PowerPoint format, and a Test Bank.
STUDENT RESOURCES: Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks an interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, and a dashboard that reports actionable data. Some eBook and electronic versions do not include Navigate 2 Advantage Access.
