Ready to take your IT skills to the healthcare industry? This concise book provides a candid assessment of the US healthcare system as it ramps up its use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other forms of IT to comply with the government’s Meaningful Use requirements. It’s a tremendous opportunity for tens of thousands of IT professionals, but it’s also a huge challenge: the program requires a complete makeover of archaic records systems, workflows, and other practices now in place. This book points out how hospitals and doctors’ offices differ from other organizations that use IT, and explains what’s necessary to bridge the gap between clinicians and IT staff. Get an overview of EHRs and the differences among medical settings Learn the variety of ways institutions deal with patients and medical staff, and how workflows vary Discover healthcare’s dependence on paper records, and the problems involved in migrating them to digital documents Understand how providers charge for care, and how they get paid Explore how patients can use EHRs to participate in their own care Examine healthcare’s most pressing problem—avoidable errors—and how EHRs can both help and exacerbate it

In September 2015, the FBI issued an alert that Web-connected medical devices, such as wireless heart monitors and insulin dispensers, pose a cybersecurity risk, and warned organizations that they need to protect these devices from cyber threats. Two months later, the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Inspector General announced it would investigate whether the networked medical devices at the country's hospitals had sufficient security in place to safeguardelectronic protected health information (ePHI) and ensure patient safety. For in health care, cyber threats come not just in the form of hacked patient information, but in forms that the retail and financial sectors never have to consider: massive injuries and deaths and the complete disruption of a vital infrastructure. The "bad guys" are no longer twentysomething nerds, but highly professional, highly skilled operators. They are part of sophisticated networks, even city-states, bent not on just demonstrating that they can get into a system, but on destroying an organization from the inside out - and reaping millions in revenue as a result.

Healthcare Information Technology Project Management in the current state isn't working well enough! Not for lack of trying, or lack of skill, or lack of commitment, but for lack of the proper tool set. This book introduces the Lean Integrated Project Delivery and the Lean Construction InstituteOs methodology referred to as the Last Planner System of Production Control] to Healthcare IT. It is designed to walk you through the steps quickly and easily; a OVade MecumO which is Latin for Ogo with me.O Used since the 1600Os as a term for guidebooks sufficiently compact to be carried in a pocket, from the beginning, Vade Mecum has also been used for such constant companions as gold, medications, and gems of wisdom. OThis book is not just another Project Management book. The tools provided in this book will help deeply integrate IT projects into the business of our Healthcare System, both in clinical and business environments.O Michael Garcia, SVP and CIO, Jackson Health System, Miami

Over the past three years, the [email protected] Medicine Initiative at MIT has held more than a dozen events on four continents, in partnership with the Harvard Medical School teaching hospitals and leading healthcare institutions around the world. Hacking culture--meaning clever exploration and engineering--has a long history at MIT and is now being adapted to healthcare challenges. Through these hackathons, our teams and faculty have honed a process to identify and validate unmet medical needs while assembling diverse teams to tackle solutions with both clinical impact and a sustainable business model. Our health hackathons bring clinicians together with entrepreneurs, engineers, and designers to collaborate openly in events that span a few hours or an entire weekend. Most important, more than 200 teams have formed to taste the entrepreneurial process and tackle a complex health problem, resulting in dozens of teams continuing after the events and a handful of venture-financed startups formed around reinventing solutions to problems such as medication compliance, patient scheduling, and lab report delivery. In this eBook, with stories written by Christina Hernandez Sherwood and Nicola Parry, you'll read more about our process, get insight from entrepreneurs who got their start at [email protected] Medicine hackathons, and go inside our biggest event to date: Healthcare's Grand [email protected]

Traditional East Asian healthcare systems have moved rapidly from the fringes of healthcare systems in the West towards the centre over the past 50 years. This change of status for traditional medicines presents their practitioners with both opportunities and challenges as the focus shifts from one of opposition towards one of integration into biomedically dominated healthcare systems. Integrating East Asian Medicine into Contemporary Healthcare examines the opportunities and challenges of integrating East Asian medicine into Western healthcare systems from an interdisciplinary perspective. Volker Scheid and Hugh MacPherson bring together contributions from acknowledged experts from a number of different disciplines - including clinical researchers, Chinese Medicine practitioners, historians, medical anthropologists, experts in the social studies of science, technology and medicine - to examine and debate the impact of the evidence-based medicine movement on the ongoing modernization of East Asian medicines. The book considers the following questions: •What are the values, goals and ethics implicit within traditional East Asian medical practices? • What claims to effectiveness and safety are made by East Asian medical practices? •What is at stake in subjecting these medical practices to biomedical models of evaluation? • What constitutes best practice? How is it to be defined and measured? • What are the ideologies and politics behind the process of integration of East Asian medical practices into modern health care systems? • What can we learn from a variety of models of integration into contemporary healthcare?
