Editorial Reviews

Review

The quality, safety, and affordability of US health care are serious concerns, and private- and public-sector entities have consistently advocated that an integral part of solving these problems is the adoption and use of electronic health record (EHR) systems. The second edition of Electronic Health Records: A Guide for Clinicians and Administrators is useful for anyone undecided about investing in an EHR system or who wishes to gain a comprehensive and up-to-date understanding of the increasing potential and issues associated with EHRs. The book provides sound advice and effectively mixes prose with figures and tables … an excellent resource for introductory courses on health care systems. Overall, this second edition of Electronic Health Records should be a key resource, recommended as a must for the bookshelf or library of persons or organizations contemplating adopting or updating an EHR system. --The Journal of the American Medical Association

A useful, timely compendium of knowledge and advice that will be invaluable to those not already familiar with EMR systems. (Review of first edition) --Journal of Biomedical Informatics

... a thoughtful workbook for individuals or groups planning to implement an electronic medical record system. (Review of first edition) --Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research

From the Publisher

The inspiration for this book came from the many clinicians whom I have encountered over the past four years who found themselves in the frustrating position of wanting to implement an electronic medical record (EMR) system and having no idea where to start the process.

This book is an attempt to answer the many questions that arise when implementing an EMR system. As an aid to the reader, the book is divided into two parts. In Part One, the reader will find in-depth discussion of technologies, issues, and processes. When applicable, references for further reading are provided.

Part Two has a different approach. It is designed as a workbook. Here, the goal is to offer practical advice on the actual steps involved in implementing an EMR system.The informationprovided in its chapters is thoroughly infused with the "hands-on" experience of the authors.Part Two covers the everyday issues of negotiating a contract, evaluating products, understanding pratcice needs, and planning. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Jerome Carter, MD is an informaticist and general internist whose interest in electronic health records began in the early 1990s. During the period between the publication of the first and second editions of Electronic Health Records, he had the good fortune to lead a team that designed and implemented an EHR. That experience led to an ongoing interest in EHR software architecture and design, especially issues related to workflow, usability and security, which he writes about on the EHR Science blog (www.ehrscience.com) and at Clinical Workflow Center (www.clinicalworkflowcenter.com).

Format: Paperback
Dr Carter has created a well organized handbook that should become a professional necessity to both clinicians as well as folks in Information Technology.

The last two thirds of the book is absolutely brilliant. It outlines in a clear workbook like format the process of doing a benefit / cost analysis; going through the selection process; key heuristics in finding the right consulting partner; managing change in the office; dealing with pain of implementation / startup and much more.

Buy this book, skim through the fist 100 or so pages (unless you are a technologist and want to read what a physician has to say about operating systems and data repositories). From page 150 onwards, the book is a must read with every page giving you something to take home.

Well done Dr Carter.

Finishing my Masters right now and this was not only the best book of the program, but also one of the few I didn't sell back. Great reference book, great examples, great references to other articles. Hands down best book in 2 years of this program. If you buy this, hold on to it for your office as a reference manual and refresher on concepts.

Disappointed. 78 pages into the book and haven't found anything helpful in implementing an EMR/EHR system.

If you're looking for an historical technology primer, this is it.

The book is relatively old, with some outdated information regarding software and hardware, but it remains an great review of electronic medical records, and for physicians who are contemplating adoption of an electronic health record, the chapters on how to choose and implementation are wonderful frameworks to use. If you want more information about HITECH act, look elsewhere.
