This series is directed to healthcare professionals who are leading the transfor- tion of health care by using information and knowledge to advance the quality of patient care. Launched in 1988 as Computers in Health Care, the series offers a broad range of titles: some are addressed to speci?c professions such as nursing, medicine, and health administration; others to special areas of practice such as trauma and radiology. Still other books in this series focus on interdisciplinary issues, such as the computer-based patient record, electronic health records, and networked healthcare systems. Renamed Health Informatics in 1998 to re?ect the rapid evolution in the discipline now known as health informatics, the series continues to add titles that contribute to the evolution of the ?eld. In this series, eminent experts, serving as editors or authors, offer their accounts of innovation in health informatics. Incre- ingly, these accounts go beyond hardware and software to address the role of information in in?uencing the transformation of healthcare delivery systems around the world. The series also increasingly focuses on "peopleware" and the organi- tional, behavioral, and societal changes that accompany the diffusion of infor- tion technology in health services environments.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The author traces the background of information retrieval in the health sciences, the most effective methods of retrieval, and research in the field. ... The book has two audiences, information specialists and practitioners, and shows both the most effective ways of doing research. ... this is a needed update, to bring both information specialists and researchers the latest in the best research techniques." (Mary J. Jarvis, Doody's Review Service, February, 2009)

"Hersh's book offers engaging content on a domain specific application of search from an Information Science perspective. This book will no doubt help Computer Science students studying IR realise the importance of capturing user information needs in a field that primarily focuses on system engineering considerations. For more experienced IR readers ... this book is essential reading. ... I would recommend this book to IR researchers, including those who aren't working on biomedical IR." (Nicola Stokes, Information Retrieval, Vol. 13, 2010)
