Synopsis
This book covers all aspects of public health informatics and
discusses the creation and management of an information technology
infrastructure that is essential in linking state and local
organizations in their efforts to gather data for the surveillance and
prevention. Public health officials will have to understand basic
principles of information resource management in order to make the
appropriate technology choices that will guide the future of their
organizations. As the major topic at the American Medical Informatics
Association's (AMIA) spring congress in 2001, public health has moved
into the spotlight, given the importance of implementing a population-
based health approach and to addressing chronic health conditions.
This book marks the first systematic effort to provide informatics
principles and examples of practice in a public health context. In
doing so, it clarifies the ways in which newer information
technologies will improve individual and community health status. This
book's primary purpose is to consolidate key information and promote a
strategic approach to information systems and development, making it a
resource for use by faculty and students of public health, as well as
the practicing public health professional.
Chapter highights include: The Governmental and Legislative Context of
Informatics; Assessing the Value of Information Systems; Ethics,
Information Technology, and Public Health; and Privacy,
Confidentiality, and Security. Review questions are featured at the
end of every chapter. Aside from its use for public health
professionals, the book will be used by schools of public health,
clinical and public health nurses and students, schools of social
work, allied health, and environmental sciences. Drs. O'Carroll and
Yasnoff are public health specialists at the Centers for Disease
