“This book is a very interesting contribution to a novel emerging field. It is organized into eight chapters. … The book is well done, but since it focuses largely on the US healthcare system, it will mostly be of interest to readers in the US.” (Pietro Hiram Guzzi, Computing Reviews, April, 2013)
“This volume in the Springer Briefs in Computer Science series is a short … introduction to health informatics, the application of computer technology to healthcare delivery systems and research. … Written for nontechnical readers working in medicine and allied health, the book is also intended for graduate students in information technology who have no background in healthcare … . I highly recommend the book for those seeking a sophisticated primer.” (Frank R. Ames, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2013)
