I bought this book to help me transition into an executive position in healthcare IT management. I have 15 years total of deep backend UNIX, networking, database, and SOA experience. The last 5 years have been in IT leadership. My main goal for this (very expensive) book was to get an understanding of IT healthcare specific protocols and HIPPA IT compliance standards.

If you are in the same situation as me, then you will find 50% of this book useful. Chapters 1-3 and 9-10 deliver the information required for a seasoned IT veteran to make the "jump" to healthcare IT. All the other chapters cover executive level IT material at a very elementary level. Even though this material is healthcare related, it is all the very basics of creating business requirements, acquiring systems, and building out sustainable architectures (all "theory" discussions with no practical "bit level" concepts). One of the chapters is a review of basic computing principles (like TCP/IP stack and RDBMS definitions). If you have been in IT leadership before, this is nothing new and stuff you have learned through the school of hard knocks. For those of you who are studying for an entry level IT management position with ZERO technical experience, this is a great "book learning" book to protect you from sounding stupid in meetings.

Overall, the book accomplished the mission. Given that there is sparse material on the subject, it was worth the investment.

While the text has some erudite points about the meaning and purpose of medical records, it is out of date and never mentions the VA medical system which has completely automated, integrated medical records for all of its facilities. Like all IT matters, this subject needs to be updated continually and clearly hasn't been.

This book is very informative and provides a detailed explanation of internet technology as it applies to a healthcare setting. It is very basic so non-technical managers can benefit the most but if you have any experience in IT, this one will be pretty much a review. If you are new to IT, this is a great place to start.

Good book, but lacks depth in the field. Recommend to healthcare professionals who need to wish to participate in IT projects in healthcare field. Also might be useful for students for the relevant topic.

But for Healthcare IT workers this book contains too basic information.

This book was a 2 sided coin. i hated the subject matter and had absolutely no interest in the material, but the way it was presented was informative and gives the reader a solid overall understanding of how things work in the healthcare information systems world.

It's easy to understand.
