With at least 40% new or updated content since the last edition, Clinical Decision Support, 2nd Edition explores the crucial new motivating factors poised to accelerate Clinical Decision Support (CDS) adoption. This book is mostly focused on the US perspective because of initiatives driving EHR adoption, the articulation of 'meaningful use', and new policy attention in process including the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A few chapters focus on the broader international perspective. Clinical Decision Support, 2nd Edition explores the technology, sources of knowledge, evolution of successful forms of CDS, and organizational and policy perspectives surrounding CDS. Exploring a roadmap for CDS, with all its efficacy benefits including reduced errors, improved quality, and cost savings, as well as the still substantial roadblocks needed to be overcome by policy-makers, clinicians, and clinical informatics experts, the field is poised anew on the brink of broad adoption. Clinical Decision Support, 2nd Edition provides an updated and pragmatic view of the methodological processes and implementation considerations. This book also considers advanced technologies and architectures, standards, and cooperative activities needed on a societal basis for truly large-scale adoption. At least 40% updated, and seven new chapters since the previous edition, with the new and revised content focused on new opportunities and challenges for clinical decision support at point of care, given changes in science, technology, regulatory policy, and healthcare finance Informs healthcare leaders and planners, health IT system developers, healthcare IT organization leaders and staff, clinical informatics professionals and researchers, and clinicians with an interest in the role of technology in shaping healthcare of the future

This book brings together a broad range of topics demonstrating how information and wireless technologies can be used in healthcare In this book, the authors focus on how medical information can be reliably transmitted through wireless communication networks. It explains how they can be optimized to carry medical information in various situations by utilizing readily available traditional wireless local area network (WLAN) and broadband wireless access (BWA) systems. In addition, the authors discuss consumer healthcare technology, which is becoming more popular as reduction in manufacturing cost of electronics products makes healthcare products more affordable to the general public. Finally, the book explores topics such as communication networks and services, patient monitoring, information processing, system deployment, data security and privacy, information technology in alternative medicine, multimedia and health informatics, and caring for the community. Key Features: Focuses on the transmission of medical information over wireless communication networks, and addresses topics such as communication networks and services, patient monitoring, information processing, system deployment, data security and privacy, and many others Provides an in-depth introduction to the various factors that need to be considered for supporting healthcare services with information technology Covers advancements in topics such as RFID in healthcare Discusses medical signal processing as well as ECG and signal processing techniques This book will be of interest to advanced students and professors in biomedical engineering, bioinformatics, and information engineering. Medical and IT professionals involved in specifying new facilities, healthcare practitioners in telemedicine, researchers in wireless communications and information technology, and network administrators will also find this book insightful.

Instructors' comments on new, 3rd, edition: "I LOVED the book. I've never seen anything like it, and I've reviewed a lot of genetics texts. The way that cases are presented throughout is extremely novel." "I am greatly pleased with the revisions. In my opinion, there is an increased clarity in the text (which will serve students well), and many welcomed updates based on current literature. Good job!" "I LIKE IT A LOT!!" "The book looks good and we will certainly be recommending it for our medical genetics course this autumn." "This is a fantastic book that I enjoy so much teaching from." "I have been reviewing the book. I think it is a great teaching tool since you can follow a case from beginning to end." "I have used this book every year since the first edition was published and it is a perfect fit for my human genetics course. I will definitely continue to use it." "It's great. I will recommend the book as a main text for the medical student class." In the few years since the previous edition technical progress, especially the widespread use of whole-genome technologies, has brought many advances in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of genetic disease. As a result, most chapters have been substantially rewritten and updated to reflect this. The unique structure and format remains the same, but significant new material has been added to cover: *the widespread use of next-generation sequencing as a routine diagnostic tool *the checking of a patient's whole exome for the cause of their problem *noninvasive prenatal diagnosis by next-generation sequencing of free fetal DNA in the maternal circulation *a new integrated treatment of epigenetics *mosaicism, 'RASopathies' and disorders of the spliceosome are described in new Disease boxes *dysmorphology in more detail New Clinical Genetics continues to offer the most innovative case-based approach to modern genetics. It is used worldwide as a textbook for medical students, but also as an essential guide to the field for genetic counselors, physician assistants, and clinical and nurse geneticists. Reviews of earlier editions: "This book provides a wonderful case-based learning environment. There are also self-assessment questions. Students are not given model answers but are provided with guidance on how to work out the correct answers for themselves. Excellent!" Human Genetics "This book is a very valuable tool that will be used by future geneticists all over Europe and beyond, both as a teaching material and as a source of excellent knowledge."
