Numerous experts in hospitals, universities, research institutes, industry and health agencies responded to the call of the commission of the European Communities for project proposals in the field of research and development of medical informatics, the AIM Exploratory Action. AIM is the acronym for Advanced Informatics in Medicine. The main objective of the AIM Programme is to further the usage of information technology and telecommunications in health care in the Community.

This 3rd edition of a classic textbook examines the context and background of public health informatics, explores the technology and science underlying the field, discusses challenges and emerging solutions, reviews many key public health information systems, and includes practical, case-based studies to guide the reader through the topic. The editors have expanded the text into new areas that have become important since publication of the previous two editions due to changing technologies and needs in the field, as well as updating and augmenting much of the core content. The book contains learning objectives, overviews, future directions, and review questions to assist readers to engage with this vast topic. The Editors and their team of well-known contributors have built upon the foundation established by the previous editions to provide the reader with a comprehensive and forward-looking review of public health informatics. The breadth of material in Public Health Informatics and Information Systems, 3rd edition makes it suitable for both undergraduate and graduate coursework in public health informatics, enabling instructors to select chapters that best fit their students’ needs.

The efficiency of modern health care relies more and more upon a computerised infrastructure. Open distributed information systems have started to bring professionals together from all over the world. On the one hand easy processing and communication of images, sound and texts will help to visualize and therefore treat illnesses and diseases efficiently, on the other hand the very ease of access and use can threaten patient privacy, accountability and health care professional secrecy. Developments in community care are responsible for the fact that many aspects of patient care are delivered outside the closed walls of a hospital and hence patient records must also be accessible and updated throughout the community. Therefore, the introduction of information technology should focus primarily on the improvement of the health of patients or, at least, not putting patients' health at risk. This means that the right data has to be available to the right person at the right time (availability). Information technology deeply affects the confidential relationship between patient and doctor, since it increasingly surrounds and mediates it. Information systems in health care establishments are increasingly developing towards an integrated system where various users can interact and communicate. The process of integration will cross the borders of local health care establishments and it will progressively expand, e.g., into patients' homes, into a European health care community, in order to support the mobility of patients, the exchange of medical and administrational data, transfer of bills and money.

This series is directed to health care professionals who are leading the tra- formation of health care by using information and knowledge. Launched in 1988 as Computers in Health Care, the series offers a broad range of titles: some addressed to specific professions such as nursing, medicine, and health administration; others to special areas of practice such as trauma and radi- ogy. Still other books in the series focus on interdisciplinary issues, such as the computer-based patient record, electronic health records, and networked health care systems. Renamed Health Informatics in 1998 to reflect the rapid evolution in the discipline now known as health informatics, the series will continue to add titles that contribute to the evolution of the field. In the series, eminent - perts, serving as editors or authors, offer their accounts of innovations in health informatics. Increasingly, these accounts go beyond hardware and so- ware to address the role of information in influencing the transformation of healthcare delivery systems around the world. The series also increasingly focuses on “peopleware” and the organizational, behavioral, and societal changes that accompany the diffusion of information technology in health services environments.

This book offers demographic analysis, client appraisal, trial design, etc along with many examples to inform the conception and critical evaluation of consumer health informatics services. Patient safety, legal and ethical appraisal, and business models add to the systematic coverage. Regarding longevity and increase of chronic diseases traditional medical care faces tremendous financial and human resource problems. Is self-service medicine as follow up of traditional care or as an approach in its own right the answer? Are internet and app stores the place where self service medicine takes place? The book distinguishes stages of such an endeavour.

Ethical Informatics is an invaluable resource for HIM, the healthcare team (nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy et al.), information technology (IT) students (associate, baccalaureate and graduate) and practitioners. Each chapter includes ethical “real life” scenarios, a discussion of the issues, and a decision-making matrix for each scenario that facilitates an understanding of ethical ways to respond to the problem and actions that would not be considered ethical.
