This books provides content that arms clinicians with the core knowledge and competencies necessary to be effective informatics leaders in health care organizations. The content is drawn from the areas recognized by the American Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) as necessary to prepare physicians to become Board Certified in Clinical Informatics. Clinical informaticians transform health care by analyzing, designing, selecting, implementing, managing, and evaluating information and communication technologies (ICT) that enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve patient care processes, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship. As the specialty grows, the content in this book covers areas useful to nurses, pharmacists, and information science graduate students in clinical/health informatics programs. These core competencies for clinical informatics are needed by all those who lead and manage ICT in health organizations, and there are likely to be future professional certifications that require the content in this text.​

Introduction to Clinical Informatics fills a void in the Computer in Health Care series. With this volume, Patrice Degoulet and Marius Fieschi provide a comprehensive view of medical informatics and carry that concept forward into the realm of clinical informatics. The authors draw upon their experi ences as medical school faculty members in France, where informatics has long been integrated into the curriculum and where the French version of this very book has been used, tested, and revised. In intent and content, this volume stands as the companion volume to Introduction to Nursing Informatics, one of the series' best selling titles. For practitioners and students of medicine, pharmacy, and other health profes sions, Introduction to Clinical Informatics offers an essential understanding how computing can support patient care, clarifying practical uses and critical issues. Today medical schools in the United States are making informatics a part of their curriculum, with required medical informatics blocks at the onset of training serving as the base for problem-based learning throughout the course of study. In an increasingly networked and computerized environ ment, health-care providers are having to alter how they practice. Whether in the office, the clinic, or the hospital, health-care professionals have access to a growing array of capabilities and tools as they deliver care. Learning to use these becomes a top priority, and this volume becomes a valuable resource.

Hepatology is an expanding field – it's hard to keep up. The liver has been sitting there the whole time, but the knowledge surrounding this perplexing organ is exploding; this makes it hard to prepare for board and recertification exams, where 1 in every 4 questions pertains to hepatology. Until now, there has been no single, slim, but high-yield volume that summarizes the hepatology you need to know for the boards. This book has it nailed. The authors have collected every pearl of wisdom, high-yield factlet, liver "board buzzword," hepatic micrograph, and classic liver imaging study they could muster, all while keeping the book a manageable size - because who has time for more than manageable when you're busy? The answer to your study questions (and study time!) can be found inside: Acing the Hepatology Questions on the GI Board Exam: The Ultimate Crunch-Time Resource. Traditional textbooks usually feature long and detailed discussions that are not directly related to Board and recertification exams.

Brennan Spiegel and Hetal Karsan present time-tested and high-yield information in a rational, useful, and contextually appealing format. Why You Will Need to Read Acing the Hepatology Questions on the GI Board Exam: Focuses exclusively on Hepatology review – an area that comprises 25% of the Board exam Carefully vetted board-style vignettes with color images Comprehensive yet succinct answers using a high-yield format Emphasis on key clinical pearls and “board buzzwords” Answers to classic board "threshold values" questions that you need to know but always seem to forget: If an echinococcal liver cyst exceeds XX cm, then the risk of rupture is clinically significant and surgery is warranted Rapid fire crunch-time exam with 135 classic one-liners such as: Spider web collaterals + caudate lobe hypertrophy = Diagnosis Stepwise fever + temperature-pulse dissociation + rose spots + hepatitis = Diagnosis With its focus on pearl after pearl, emphasis on images, and attention to high-yield “tough stuff” vignettes you don't know the answers to (yet), Acing the Hepatology Questions on the GI Board Exam is truly the ultimate crunch-time resource for acing often vexing liver section of the examination, taking recertifying examinations, looking good on clerkship rounds, or for just challenging yourself with interesting and entertaining vignettes.

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.

An ideal health care system relies on efficiently generating timely, accurate evidence to deliver on its promise of diminishing the divide between clinical practice and research. There are growing indications, however, that the current health care system and the clinical research that guides medical decisions in the United States falls far short of this vision. The process of generating medical evidence through clinical trials in the United States is expensive and lengthy, includes a number of regulatory hurdles, and is based on a limited infrastructure. The link between clinical research and medical progress is also frequently misunderstood or unsupported by both patients and providers. The focus of clinical research changes as diseases emerge and new treatments create cures for old conditions. As diseases evolve, the ultimate goal remains to speed new and improved medical treatments to patients throughout the world. To keep pace with rapidly changing health care demands, clinical research resources need to be organized and on hand to address the numerous health care questions that continually emerge. Improving the overall capacity of the clinical research enterprise will depend on ensuring that there is an adequate infrastructure in place to support the investigators who conduct research, the patients with real diseases who volunteer to participate in experimental research, and the institutions that organize and carry out the trials. To address these issues and better understand the current state of clinical research in the United States, the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation held a 2-day workshop entitled Transforming Clinical Research in the United States. The workshop, summarized in this volume, laid the foundation for a broader initiative of the Forum addressing different aspects of clinical research. Future Forum plans include further examining regulatory, administrative, and structural barriers to the effective conduct of clinical research; developing a vision for a stable, continuously funded clinical research infrastructure in the United States; and considering strategies and collaborative activities to facilitate more robust public engagement in the clinical research enterprise.
