More About the Author

Richard Gartee is a poet, author and novelist. His poems have been published in literary magazines, chap books and five anthologies of his works. His first novel, Lancelot's Grail, was published in 2013. He is a full-time author and has written seven college textbooks (and multiple editions.)

Lancelot's Grail explores self-awareness and enlightenment in an Arthurian-age story of two siblings' journey to enlightenment after they discover Sir Lancelot living as a hermit and uncover his knowledge of the Holy Grail. Richard is a member of Writers Alliance of Gainesville and Florida Writers Association.

He says:
"I started out in creative writing, but then spent 20 years in the design, development, and implementation of the preeminent medical practice management and electronic health records systems. During that period of my life I wrote a college textbook which became a national bestseller in its field. I left the software company, wrote more textbooks, and became a fulltime author. Between textbooks I turned my attention back to my creative writing origins. I began working on stage plays and then on Lancelot's Grail. I am currently writing my next novel and three more textbooks."

Allen Wenner, M.D., leading Electronic Health Record expert says about Richard:
"Richard Gartee has decades of experience in the field as a teacher. In addition, he has the unique insight of having been part of the development of the industry itself."

-Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) task force for development of electronic remittance guidelines

4.0 out of 5 stars Health IT Program June 15, 2013
By X
Format:Paperback
For the students who are doing the Health IT program at UT. I will be honest and say I didn't read a single page out of this book and you DO NOT need it for the program. Save some money!

1.0 out of 5 stars Out of Date, not worth $5! November 12, 2013
Format:Paperback
This book is out of date. I am an instructor for a well-known Business School that forced the use of this book. It is copyright 2011 but references statistics from 1999 that forecast 2010 expectations. I have been in the health care IT industry for over 27 years and have seen what this book discusses come and go! I correct at least 5 slides for every chapter to bring the material up to date. The book does not cover what is important in the real world of HIT. The author devotes less than a page to major topics and goes on and on topics that are no longer relevant. It may be a good history book for the "Medical Records" department, but as for a text book for college students that want to be up to date in the field upon graduation, it does not even deserve the star I gave it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Intro to computers March 15, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is horrible. If you are under the age of 20, skip buying this alltogether and just borrow a friends in class. It's just a bunch of common sense stuff about how computers work with a small amount about health care.

Purchased this book for a class. At the end of each chapter the questions are easy to answer since the material is presented in an easy to understand format. So far, the grades on my quizzes reflect the ease of use of the material.
