Wickramasinghe / Schaffer Theories to Inform Superior Health Informatics Research and PracticeThis unifying volume offers a clear theoretical framework for the research shaping the emerging direction of informatics in health care. Contributors ground the reader in the basics of informatics methodology and design, including creating salient research questions, and explore the human dimensions of informatics in studies detailing how patients perceive, respond to, and use health data. Real-world examples bridge the theoretical and the practical as knowledge management-based solutions are applied to pervasive issues in information technologies and service delivery. Together, these articles illustrate the scope of health possibilities for informatics, from patient care management to hospital administration, from improving patient satisfaction to expanding the parameters of practice.
Highlights of the coverage:
· Design science research opportunities in health care
· IS/IT governance in health care: an integrative model
· Persuasive technologies and behavior modification through technology: design of a mobile application for behavior change
· The development of a hospital secure messaging and communication platform: a conceptualization
· The development of intelligent patient-centric systems for health care
· An investigation on integrating Eastern and Western medicine with informatics
Interest in Theories to Inform Superior Health Informatics Research and Practice cuts across academia and the healthcare industry. Its audience includes healthcare professionals, physicians and other clinicians, practicing informaticians, hospital administrators, IT departments, managers, and management consultants, as well as scholars, researchers, and students in health informatics and public health.
