"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" (the publisher).
“This health informatics textbook keeps pace with the rapidly evolving field, providing a thorough overview of the key foundational concepts within the field and their interactions with people, networks, systems, and the field of healthcare, while also integrating future applications and technology (machine learning and AI) that will ensure readers have the most current knowledge in the field. The many practical assignments, reflective activities, and interviews provide unique opportunities for application based learning.”Pria Nippak, PhD, Associate Professor and Academic Coordinator, School of Health Services Management and Health Informatics Certificate, Toronto Metropolitan University
“A highly interactive textbook that engages students in foundational concepts of health informatics. By weaving together his experiences, research findings, practical models and exercises within each chapter, Christo El Morr provides a treasure trove for us in and out of the classroom. He has produced a text that is stimulating, fun to read, and highly relevant in the rapidly evolving field of health informatics. A must-read!” Theresa Mudge, MHA, CHE, Professor, Health Informatics, Sault College
