Biomedical Information Technology is a distinct volume in the Library and Information Science Series. It is an introductory primer on how to integrate managerial information systems design in health care information systems. The volume presents a clear managerial approach in a manner that may easily be applied and reproduced, making the book a valuable source for professionals in the health care industries.
Sackman tracks the scientific, biosocial and ethical evolution of information technology in the global context and sketches the formidable advances in biomedical information technology including applications in medical imaging, real time intensive care units, information systems for enhancing the productivity and quality of life for disabled populations, and powerful scientific advances in deciphering and understanding the human genetic code. The high rate of illness associated with computer workstations is also probed, discussing probable causes and collusions within government and business organizations. The rationale and methods are authoritative and well-organized. With a focus on global opportunities and threats, this volume makes an excellent text for upper-division undergraduate or graduate courses in library sciences.
