Description

This is a resource book on clinical decision support systems for informatics specialists, a textbook for teachers or students in health informatics and a comprehensive introduction for clinicians. It has become obvious that, in addition to physicians, other health professionals have need of decision support. Therefore, the issues raised in this book apply to a broad range of clinicians. The book includes chapters written by internationally recognized experts on the design, evaluation and application of these systems, who examine the impact of computer-based diagnostic tools both from the practitioner's perspective and that of the patient.

Review Text

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The author has three objectives: to provide a technical resource about CDSS for information specialists; a textbook for students in medical informatics programs, and a resource for clinicians interested in CDSS. ... the citations are very helpful and serve almost as a recommended reading list for the topic. This book is especially well suited for students in health informatics who are interested in designing and developing clinical decision support systems. It provides an excellent overview with suitable references for continued learning." (Keri L. Christensen, Doody's Review Service, November, 2007)
