Highlighting the state of the emerging Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) and the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system in the US, this book discusses the direct and indirect impact on patients, addressing issues related to communication barriers, medical errors, and patient care, such as quality of service and time spent. It also looks at indirectly related concerns including HIT-bioterrorism, funding, information exchange, and policies linking healthcare organizations for increased efficiency. The author offers case studies and empirical analyses, along with extensive interviews with industry leaders, to consider relevant financial problems, options, and ethical issues.
