About this book series

With the development of database systems and networking technologies, Hospital Information Management Systems (HIMS) and web-based clinical or medical systems (such as the Medical Director, a generic GP clinical system) are widely used in health and clinical practices. Healthcare and medical service are more data-intensive and evidence-based since electronic health records are now used to track individuals’ and communities’ health information. These highlights substantially motivate and advance the emergence and the progress of health informatics research and practice. Health Informatics continues to gain interest from both academia and health industries. The significant initiatives of using information, knowledge and communication technologies in health industries ensures patient safety, improve population health and facilitate the delivery of government healthcare services. Books in the series will reflect technology’s cross-disciplinary research in IT and health/medical science to assist in disease diagnoses, treatment, prediction and monitoring through the modeling, design, development, visualization, integration and management of health related information. These technologies include information systems, web technologies, data mining, image processing, user interaction and interfaces, sensors and wireless networking, and are applicable to a wide range of health-related information such as medical data, biomedical data, bioinformatics data, and public health data.
