Although informatics trainees and practitioners who assume operational computing roles in their organization may have reasonably advanced understanding of theoretical informatics, many are unfamiliar with the practical topics - such as downtime procedures, interface engines, user support, JCAHO compliance, and budgets - which will become the mainstay of their working lives.

Practical Guide to Clinical Computing Systems 2nd edition helps prepare these individuals for the electronic age of health care delivery. It is also designed for those who migrate into clinical computing operations roles from within their health care organization. A new group of people interested in this book are those preparing for Clinical Informatics board certification in the US.

The work provides particular differentiation from the popular first edition in four areas:

40% more content detailing the many practical aspects of clinical informatics.
Addresses the specific needs of the Clinical Informatics board certification course - for which it is presently recommended by the ABPM
Focus on new tech paradigms including cloud computing and concurrency - for this rapidly changing field.
