About this book

Investing in eHealth: What it Takes to Sustain Consumer Health Informatics examines the evolution of the IHCS and the significant changes in organizational culture and operational systems that may be required for successful and sustained implementation. This book culminates a set of general guidelines for any health care provider striving to successfully employ the model, and suggests directions for future research on the diffusion of IHCSs and related technologies.

Investing in eHealth provides a principled approach to support health care managers, clinicians, and educators interested in complementing clinical services with interactive health communication systems (IHCSs).

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is the report of a project, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, on the planning and implementation of a specific Interactive Health Communication System (IHCS). … The editors state that the audience includes clinical providers, healthcare administrators, healthcare informatics professionals, and students. However, the more focused audience includes those who are implementing such systems and the administrators trying to secure a budget and support for such projects." (Judith A. DePalma, Doody's Review Service, December, 2007)
