About this book

Now is a critical time in pediatric informatics. As information technologies—electronic health records (EHRs), personal health records (PHRs), computerized physician order entry (CPOE)—and standards (HL7) are developed to improve the quality of health care, it is imperative for policy makers and pediatricians to be aware of their impact on pediatric care and child health. Informed child advocates must be at the planning table as national and regional health information networks are developed to insure the unique health care needs of children are being met.

Pediatric Informatics: Computer Applications in Child Health is a current digest of the important trends in pediatric informatics, written by leading experts in the field. This book explores how the management of biomedical data, information, and knowledge can optimize and advance child health. The contributors investigate the specific importance of pediatric informatics is derived from the biological, psychological, social and cultural needs that the distinguish children from other populations. These distinctions create complexities in the management of pediatric data and information that make children a vulnerable population and require the development of a new body of knowledge in pediatric informatics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book on pediatric informatics is one in a series of focused on the emerging field of health informatics. … It is directed at a very diverse audience including pediatricians, information services officers, and computer scientists working to integrate current information management into pediatric practice. … This is a good reference to review the current state of the field before embarking on a program to move to electronic records in any pediatric practice.” (Michael White, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2010)

“This is the first book specific to pediatrics. This comprehensive book describes the specific informatics aspects of pediatric medicine … . The book is geared mainly for healthcare IT developers … . For pediatricians, it is an introduction to the current topics in healthcare IT. This is a good starting point for both groups. … a good first attempt geared for healthcare IT professionals who are trying to meet and understand the specific needs of those who provide care to pediatric and neonatal patients.” (Matthew Cortez, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2011)
