Data Warehousing for Biomedical Informatics

Data Warehousing for Biomedical Informatics

Author: Richard E. (Data-Oriented Quality Solutions, Orlando, Florida, USA) Biehl Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/11/2015

Data Warehousing for Biomedical Informatics is a step-by-step how-to guide for designing and building an enterprise-wide data warehouse across a biomedical or healthcare institution, using a four-iteration lifecycle and standardized design pattern. It enables you to quickly implement a fully-scalable generic data architecture that supports your organization's clinical, operational, administrative, financial, and research data. By following the guidelines in this book, you will be able to successfully progress through the Alpha, Beta, and Gamma versions, plus fully implement your first production release in about a year. The Alpha version allows you to implement just enough of the basic design pattern to illustrate its core capabilities while loading a small sampling of limited data for demonstration purposes. This provides an easy way for everyone involved to visualize the new warehouse paradigm by actually examining a core subset of the working system. You can finish the Alpha version, also referred to as the proof-of-concept, in as little as 3-4 weeks. The Beta version, which can be completed in about 2-3 months, adds required functionality and much more data. It allows you to get the full warehouse up and running quickly, in order to facilitate longer-term planning, user and support team training, and setup of the operational environment. The Gamma version, which is a fully-functional system-though still lacking data-can be implemented in about 3-4 months. About one year after starting, you will be ready to launch Release 1.0 as a complete and secure data warehouse.

The History of Medical Informatics in the United States

The History of Medical Informatics in the United States

Author: Morris F. Collen Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/09/2015

This is a meticulously detailed chronological record of significant events in the history of medical informatics and their impact on direct patient care and clinical research, offering a representative sampling of published contributions to the field. The History of Medical Informatics in the United States has been restructured within this new edition, reflecting the transformation medical informatics has undergone in the years since 1990. The systems that were once exclusively institutionally driven - hospital, multihospital, and outpatient information systems - are today joined by systems that are driven by clinical subspecialties, nursing, pathology, clinical laboratory, pharmacy, imaging, and more. At the core is the person - not the clinician, not the institution - whose health all these systems are designed to serve. A group of world-renowned authors have joined forces with Dr Marion Ball to bring Dr Collen's incredible work to press. These recognized leaders in medical informatics, many of whom are recipients of the Morris F. Collen Award in Medical Informatics and were friends of or mentored by Dr Collen, carefully reviewed, editing and updating his draft chapters. This has resulted in the most thorough history of the subject imaginable, and also provides readers with a roadmap for the subject well into later in the century.

Medical Informatics, E-Health Fundamentals and Applications

Medical Informatics, E-Health Fundamentals and Applications

Author: Alain Venot Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/09/2013

Over the years, medical informatics has matured into a true scientific discipline. Fundamental and applied aspects are now taught in various fields of health, including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing and public health. Medical informatics is also often included in the curricula of many other disciplines, including the life sciences, engineering and economics. Medical informatics is a complex and rapidly changing discipline. Relatively few books have been published on the subject, and they rapidly become obsolete. This book is the fruit of a collaborative effort between authors teaching medical informatics in France and others who are conducting research in this field. In addition, an international perspective was pursued, as reflected in the inclusion of various developments and actions in both the USA and Europe. This book is divided into 18 chapters, all of which include learning objectives, recommendations for further reading, exercises and bibliographic references.

Impact of Healthcare Informatics on Quality of Patient Care and Health Services

Impact of Healthcare Informatics on Quality of Patient Care and Health Services

Author: Divya (George Mason University, Arlington, Virginia, USA) Srinivasan Sridhar Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/02/2013

Recent healthcare reform and its provisions have pushed health information technology (HIT) into the forefront. Higher life expectancies, fewer medical errors, lower costs, and improved transparency are all possible through HIT. Taking an integrated approach, Impact of Healthcare Informatics on Quality of Patient Care and Health Services examines the various types of organizations, including nonprofit hospitals, for-profit hospitals, community health centers, and government hospitals. By doing so, it provides you with a comparative perspective of how different organizations adapt and use the technology. The first part of the book covers the basics of HIT. It explains the significant changes that the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) will bring about for stakeholders. This section includes coverage of key organizational cultural factors, management changes that will result from HIT, hospital financing changes that may take effect, a cost-benefit analysis of electronic medical records (EMRs), and the numerous organizational behavior changes stimulated by HIT. The second part of the book focuses on the broader community: the patient, the physician, government, and how HIT will impact each. These chapters cover quality of care and cost impacts on the patient from HIT, changes for patients of varying socioeconomic statuses, physician perceptions of HIT, medical malpractice lawsuits involving the use of HIT, bioterrorism, and use of EMRs. The book also includes a discussion about mobile health, and how a rapidly growing mobile health generation is changing the face of healthcare as we know it.

Medical Informatics An Introduction

Medical Informatics An Introduction

Author: F. Wingert Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/04/2012

With the exception of some additions in Section 3.1 and minor changes, the English edition of the Medizinische Informatik is a translation of the German edition. Because there is frequently no one-to-one correspondence between the Ger- man and the English terminology, misinterpretations are possible. I have tried to avoid this situation as far as possible. The main problem re- mains within the academic setting. In recent years, the term 1~for.atics has become popular in Europe, but is widely unknown in the United States. The field covers mostly what is understood as computer science and in- formation science. The corresponding term medical inforaatics, now used in the name of international societies such as the International Medical Informatics Association , covers medical computer science , medical information science , as well as biomedical engineering and has no de- finite boundary to biomathematics . The book has not been translated on a professional basis in order to keep my own style, although there has been assistance by Dr. S. Raymond, for which I am very grateful. Dipl.-Phys. N. Osada has been of great help both by proof-reading and by excellent support during preparation of the camera-ready manuscript. Further valuable advice has been given by: A.W. Pratt, M.D.; M. Ebstein, Ph.D.; M. Pacak, Ph.D.; G.S. Dunham; L.D. Nadel, Ph.D.; P.O. Miller.
