about this item

Safety and Risk Management for Health Information Technology provides health information technology (HIT) professionals and clinical informatics professionals with information and approaches on how to prevent HIT safety issues from arising. In addition, the book helps individuals retrospectively analyze HIT related medical errors and develop an effective eHealth safety strategy that is specific to their organization (e.g,. vendor, regional health authority) and context (i.e., acute care, home care, long-term care, public health/community health setting).

Notwithstanding the importance of the area, most books don’t focus on helping vendors, healthcare organizations, and managers in developing an effective strategy for HIT safety issues. The authors have noticed as educators that both undergraduate and graduate students, and those who are currently HIT professionals, are constantly in need of relevant texts, educational resources, and guides on how to create a successful strategy based on current research in the area.

  • Offers a comprehensive introduction to the terminology and issues that are specific to safety and risk management involving HIT in healthcare
  • Provides a full description of the risk management methods that can be used to prevent incidents involving HIT safety before, during, and after systems implementation
  • Presents case studies of the application of HIT safety and risk management approaches that can be used in the design, development, customization, implementation, and maintenance of systems based on real-world examples published in academic and grey literature
