Review:

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The third edition, renamed Biomedical Informatics in recognition of the converging course of clinical systems with systems that support molecular biology and genetics ... shows substantial growth in both pages and breadth of coverage relative to earlier editions. ... overall the book is commendably readable ... . In addition to its primary audience of students ... the text’s accumulated wisdom and lessons learned can help educate any health professional responsible for selecting information systems to be acquired and used in office and institutional settings." (Daniel Masys, JAMA, Vol. 296 (21), December, 2006)

"An introduction to an important area in biomedical informatics with suggested additional reading and highlighted concepts. The book is intended to be used in formal courses by health professions students and by biomedical computing students. In addition, it is designed to serve as a reference for established practitioners, conveying concepts in biomedical informatics while providing illustrative examples. ... is an essential contribution to enhancing education in biomedical informatics. The update is timely and relevant and it compares especially favorably in breadth as an introductory text." (David M. Liebovitz, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2008)
