Oncology Informatics: Using Health Information Technology to Improve Processes and Outcomes in Cancer Care, (PDF) summarizes National Cancer Institute-collected evidence into a design that is optimally helpful for hospital planners, researchers, physicians, and informaticians alike as they collectively strive to speed up progress against cancer using informatics tools.
This ebook is a formational guide for changing clinical systems into engines of discovery and also a translational guide for moving data into practice. It meets approvals from the National Academies of Science to “reorient the research portfolio” toward offering greater “cognitive support for patients, physicians, and caregivers” to “improve patient outcomes.” Information from systems studies has recommended that oncology and primary care systems are susceptible to errors of omission, which can lead to deadly consequences downstream. By introducing the best science across disciplines, this ebook creates new environments of “Smart and Connected Health.”
The ebook is also a policy guide in an age of extensive reform in healthcare settings, including new incentives for healthcare providers to show “meaningful use” of these technologies to improve system safety, engage patients, enable population health, ensure continuity of care and protect privacy. Oncology Informatics recognizes this extraordinary turn of events and provides practical guidance for meeting meaningful use of necessities in the service of improved cancer care.
Anyone who wishes to take complete advantage of the health information revolution in oncology to speed up successes against cancer will find the information in this ebook valuable.
- Offers evidence-based guidelines for designers on how to create system interfaces that are efficacious, easy to use, and timesaving
- Provides insight for researchers into the ways in which informatics tools in oncology can be used to shorten the distance between practice and discovery
- Presents a practical perspective for practitioners and allied health care professionals on how to employ Health I.T. solutions in a way that will reduce disruption while optimizing practice goals
