Addressed to practitioners of healthcare administration, the book looks beyond traditional information systems. This text suggests how information systems can bring a competitive advantage to hospitals and other healthcare providers. Its viewpoint is neither technical nor clinical. Rather it is concerned with the role and the use of information in the provision of healthcare. The text is divided into several reader-friendly units, which allows the reader to quickly select only what he wants to study in depth. Divided into two sections, one dealing with support for the private practitioner, the other with managing an institution, the material spans a wide array of types of computers. This provides valuable instructional information for nurses, physicians and administrators using the computer as a tool for providing quality medical care
