I give the text content 4 stars. It was required reading for an online college course and was informative for the purpose. I especially liked the Case Studies - they really helped to bring the information together.

The major problem I had is that there are no page numbers, only location numbers at the bottom of the page. This makes it very difficult to find a topic or use the index to look up a concept.

I use this book in an introductory health informatics course. Covers exactly what I needed, including HITECH. The activities at the end if each chapter as well as the short cases at the end are very useful for discussion.

This is a great book especially for beginners. Even those who are "seasoned" may pick up some new information. I will say, with the way technology and healthcare are changing so quickly these days, don't take too long too read it or it may become quickly outdated. Keep fresh and get the new versions as they come out.

This is an informative and well organized book that helped me tremendously in preparing for the Clinical Informatics board exam. The book covers all the bases at just the right depth. The writing style is clear and concise. I highly recommended it!

I enjoyed the book, not how the teacher chose to use it for the test, made it hard to locate items with no glossery, but overall a great book to use.

As of 2014, this textbook is still relevant which is difficult to achieve regarding information technology. Provides an excellent overview for a broad variety of subjects.
