An Introduction to Healthcare Informatics: Building Data-Driven Tools (PDF) bridges the gap between the current healthcare Information technology (IT) landscape and cutting edge technologies in cloud infrastructure; data science; artificial intelligence and application development. IT encompasses several rapidly evolving areas; however; healthcare as a field suffers from a relatively archaic technology landscape and a lack of curriculum to effectively train its millions of practitioners in the skills they need to use data and related tools.
The ebook discusses topics such as data analysis; data access; big data current landscape and application architecture. Additionally; it encompasses a discussion on future developments in this growing field. This ebook provides nurses; physicians; and health scientists with the concepts and skills necessary to work with analysts and IT professionals and even perform analysis and application architecture themselves.
- Brings diagrams for each example and technology describing how they operate individually as well as how they fit into a larger reference architecture built upon throughout the textbook
- Presents case-based learning relevant to healthcare; bringing each concept accompanied by an example which becomes critical when explaining the function of SQL; databases; basic models etc.
- Explains healthcare-specific stakeholders and the management of analytical projects within healthcare; allowing healthcare practitioners to successfully navigate the political and bureaucratic challenges to implementation
- Provides a roadmap for implementing modern technologies and design patterns in a healthcare setting; helping the reader to understand both the archaic enterprise systems that often exist in hospitals as well as emerging tools and how they can be used together.
