This book is useful, readable, current, well organized, and seems to be a unique contribution." --Doody's "In this volume there are examples of how advances in technology not only empower individuals in their interactions with a health system but also enable health professionals to better tailor their work and time for the benefit of patients and clients." -Paul R.
