Introduction to Health Informatics, Second Edition
A Canadian Perspective
The first resource of its kind, Introduction to Health Informatics examined the effects of health informatics on healthcare practitioners, patients, and policies from a distinctly Canadian perspective. This second edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect current trends and innovations in health informatics and includes new figures, charts, tables, and web links.
In this text, author Christo El Morr presents the subject of health informatics in an accessible, concise way, breaking the topic down into 12 chapters divided into 3 sections. Each chapter includes objectives, key terms, which are defined in a full glossary at the end of the text, and a “Test Your Understanding” section for student review. The second edition also features 15% brand new content, with a full chapter on analytics, machine learning, and AI for health, as well as information on virtual care, mHealth apps, COVID-19 responses, adoption of EHR across provinces, clinical informatics, and precisions medicine.
Packed with pedagogical features and updated instructor supplements, this text is a vital resource for students, instructors, and practitioners in health informatics, health management, and health policy.
