Description

Advancements in technology regularly influence the healthcare field and developing aspects on medical patient safety. Implementing electronic health records, decision support systems, and computerized physician order entry systems reduces risk in the potential for e-health to make errors leading to adverse events.

E-Health Technologies and Improving Patient Safety: Exploring Organizational Factors presents an overview on information and communication technologies and addresses the impacts on the field of both patient safety and e-health. This book offers insightful perspectives and concentrated research on concepts related to these areas, as well as issues and current trends in patient safety in e-health.

E-Health Technologies and Improving Patient Safety: Exploring Organizational Factors contains 17 chapters by biology, public health, health informatics, technology, biomedicine, cytopathology, and other researchers from the United States, Europe, Hong Kong, and Australia, who discuss the use of e-health technologies to improve patient safety. They address the inclusion of uncertainty as a dimension of performance to promote evaluation of healthcare services quality, medical error, the implementation of electronic health records, telemedicine network organizations, decision support systems, a healthcare process execution engine, barcode technology, radiofrequency identification technologies, grid technology, simulation, tailored health communication, and technologies to aid in human papilloma virus detection, sleep electroencephalograms, and understanding leukemia proliferation.
