Additional Book Details

An accessible primer, Electronic Health Record: A Systems Analysis of the Medications Domain introduces the tools and methodology of Structured Systems Analysis as well as the nuances of the Medications domain. The first part of the book provides a top-down decomposition along two main paths: data in motion—workflows, processes, activities, and tasks in parallel to the analysis of data at rest—database structures, conceptual, logical models, and entities relationship diagrams.

Structured systems analysis methodology and tools are applied to: electronic prescription, computerized physician order entry, drug dispensation, medication administration, and clinical decision support. Assuming no previous clinical and/or informatics knowledge, the book supplies a comprehensive view of the EHR/EMR with dedicated chapters on: user interface considerations, reporting requirements, and standards and vocabularies for meaningful use.

Containing clear language and more than 170 figures and 100 review questions with answers—this book is a great companion for Healthcare IT professionals and an ideal resource for clinical informatics students.
