Today's capacious medical information systems have increased the amount and availability of general medical knowledge and patient-specific data. And yet, information gaps at the point-of-care are widening; clinicians are under increased pressure to synthesize best-evidence, review more patient data and complete more clinical tasks in less time. To meet the information-intensive needs of the 21st century clinician, the electronic health record (EHR) must evolve beyond a digital representation of the paper chart. This new book reviews some of the ubiquitous technical barriers impeding information management at the point-of-care and discusses strategies for better data visualization including multimedia displays, clinical dashboards, concept-oriented views, metaphor graphics and probability analytics.
