About the Authors
  • The complex IT requirements of a critical care unit have led to the development of numerous information systems. In this concise handbook, the authors share their experience and research findings on how to unleash the power of the technology and overcome potential problems. Clinical Information Systems in Critical Care explains the key aspects of the information systems currently available, covering topics such as how to select the best system to match the requirements of a critical care unit, the issues surrounding data maintenance, patient confidentiality and the concept of the paperless patient record. It discusses both the benefits that may justify investment in the technology and hurdles that may arise, and offers advice for avoiding common problems. Clinical Information Systems in Critical Care is essential reading for all clinicians and health managers involved in developing, implementing, maintaining and using clinical information systems.

    • Offers advice on how to select the most appropriate system for a particular organization's requirements, so that technology supports rather than hinders practice
    • Describes potential benefits and pitfalls, facilitating planning before, during and after implementation
    • Describes the required hardware, providing purchasing guides and allowing the non-technical reader to understand the technical jargon
