Clinical Systems in Healthcare
This course focuses specifically on healthcare IT to support clinical workflows and point-of-care decision-making. Students gain an in-depth understanding of implementation, individual and group adoption, and evaluation issues for clinical systems in different types of healthcare settings. Exercises involving case analyses and workflow design are provided and ethical, social, and policy issues are examined. The course materials include readings by current thought leaders, healthcare informatics and information systems researchers, and in-depth case studies of HIT in both U.S. and non-U.S. contexts.
