This most widely used textbook in the field has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect changes in the health care industry and the renewed focus on health care information technology initiatives. Two new chapters cover Federal efforts to enhance quality of patient care through the use of health care information technology and strategy considerations. Additionally, reflecting the increased focus on global health, the book features an international perspective on health care information technology. Case studies of organizations experiencing management-related information system challenges have been updated and several new cases have been added. These reality-based cases are designed to stimulate discussion among students and enable them to apply concepts in the book to real-life scenarios. The book’s companion Web site features lecture slides, a test bank, and other materials to enhance students’ understanding.
This trail-blazing book strips Chinese medical theory of the mystique and metaphysical pretentions that too often plague the discipline. It reconstructs the theory as derived from and consistent with empirical observations and clinical findings, in a manner that strikes common ground with biomedical science. Concepts like qi and phlegm and vital organs of the body like the shen (kidney) are interpreted, not as physical entities with defined measurable properties, but as constructs to facilitate the application of models for diagnosis and therapy. Using the approach of the philosophy of science, the author evaluates the epistemic credentials of the classical yin-yang and five-element models and the diagnostic-therapeutic paradigm of Chinese medical syndromes, and suggests how these heuristic models can be subjected to modern clinical trials. Principles governing the use of herbal, acupuncture, tui na and qigong therapies are elucidated using this empirical scientific approach.
