Synopsis: This classic text has been completely updated to reflect today's challenges of managing information in a variety of healthcare settings.

* The role of information systems
* improved quality of care
* management decision making
* risk analysis
* financial forecasting
* outcomes measurement

From the Author: 1. I first started thinking about this book in the late 1970s (the first edition was published in 1979). I have taught courses on information systems in hospitals and healthcare since the early 1970s. In teaching this course to graduate students in hospital and health administration, I found that there was no suitable text in the field which emphasized applications of information systems to clinical and management processes in health care organizations. As a result, I approached HAP with the idea for such a book and the rest is history.

The book is designed to serve both as a textbook for students in health administration education programs and as a general reference for practicing administrators in the field. Both goals have been realized through course adoptions and general sales to practitioners. The focus of the book is managerial -- that is, it is written for managers (current and future) who will need to be able to use information systems in their organizations. Technical content is included but this material is presented and explained in a managerial context.

The two fundamental concepts I'd like the reader to grasp are:

a. Information systems, when properly designed and implemented, are important tools for improving patient care and strategic management in healthcare organizations.

b. To be effective, information systems must be carefully planned and managed. Information system priorities must be aligned with the overall strategic objectives of the organization. All of the chapters are important. The fifth edition includes important new information on managed care, the Internet, telecommunications and networking, and computer applications in integrated delivery systems.

Modern healthcare management is information dependent. Managers must be able to effectively utilize and manage information systems if their organizations are to survive and proper. This book's major contribution is to assist managers in this important task.
