About this book


This book provides practical guidance regarding the safe manufacture and implementation of health information technology (IT), consolidating what has been learnt in the industry over the last 10-15 years.

Healthcare professionals are increasingly reliant on IT to deliver care and inform their clinical decision making. Health IT provides enormous benefits in efficiency, communication and decision making. However a number of high-profile UK and US studies have concluded that when health IT is poorly designed or sub-optimally implemented, patient safety can be compromised. As a result, manufacturers and healthcare organizations are increasingly required to demonstrate that their health IT solutions are proactively assured.

Health Information Systems: Managing Clinical Risk provides essential supporting material to professionals involved in creating or implementing health IT and is the perfect companion for programme managers, clinicians, designers, risk managers, and IT staff.
