Summary note:
  • Evaluation Methods in Medical Informatics addresses both the underlying science and day-to-day practice of evaluating information systems in clinical and educational settings. Written as a textbook and general reference for a broad range of health and information professionals at varying levels of experience, this volume will appeal to those training for careers in informatics, those actively conducting evaluation studies, and those responsible for medical center information systems.
  • The authors view successful evaluations as studies that prove useful to the specific audiences for which they are undertaken. As such, this work has a practical orientation appropriate to the increasingly central role of information technology in health care.
