Obviously, advances in information technology will create new opportunities in e-health, but will public health care organizations be able to integrate them into heritage systems and procedures? These 142 papers assess the current state of bioinformatics, design principles and services, focusing on hospital culture as well as technology. Their contributors include such topics as differences in doctors' and nurses' assessments of computerized systems, videophones for the delivery of Home Health Care in oncology, applications for rare diseases, consumer and home-based e-Health, including virtual rehabilitation after stroke, decision support and knowledge management, formalization of clinical practices through e-health, assessment of biomedical knowledge according to confidence criteria, process mining for clinical workflows, and evaluation, including the use of performance metrics to monitor the impact on pathology laboratory services. Contributors also assess the impact of a range of decision support systems and clinical reasoning processes. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
