Transcription errors, doctors' misstatements and awkward wording make for some very funny reading in medical charts. This collection of bloopers should produce quite a few good laughs. While some may be understood only by health care professionals, many will tickle the funny bones of the general audience.

Future generations of vital signs and point-of-care medical devices must interoperate directly and seamlessly with information technology systems to facilitate effective patient care management within the healthcare enterprise. This is the first book addressing medical device integration with the computer-based patient record in a holistic way. Readers step into the area of two-way device communication & control and learn best practises from an author known for his brilliant expertise in this field. It is a fundamental guide for a broad group of people: clinical and biomedical engineers, physicians, bioinformatics practitioners, and vendors. Providing the essential how-to for medical device integration into the electronic medical record (EMR), health information system (HIS), and computerized patient record (CPR), the book highlights information on data extraction, usually not offered by device vendors. This comprises topics such as the use of third-party software, information on what to do when you develop interfaces on your own, regulatory issues, and how to assure connectivity and access to data. For physicians, it is a primer and knowledge manual for data integration when applied to clinical care and trials. It gives information on knowledge management and how data can be used statistically and as a tool in patient care management. Furthermore, it impresses upon the reader the quantities of data that must be processed and reduced to make for effective use at the point of care. HIS and CPR vendors may learn how data integration can be simplified and how software developers may be assisted in the process of communicating vital information to their repositories. The book is rounded off by a chapter on the future of integration.

A Practical Guide for Primary Care
Author: Neil S. Skolnik
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Physician adoption of electronic medical records (EMRs) has become a national priority. It is said that EMRs have the potential to greatly improve patient care, to provide the data needed for more effective population management and quality assurance of both an individual practice’s patients and well as patients of large health care systems, and the potential to create efficiencies that allow physicians to provide this improved care at a far lower cost than at present. There is currently a strong U.S. government push for physicians to adopt EMR technology, with the Obama administration emphasizing the use of EMRs as an important part of the future of health care and urging widespread adoption of this technology by 2014. This timely book for the primary care community offers a concise and easy to read guide for implementing an EMR system. Organized in six sections, this invaluable title details the general state of the EMR landscape, covering the government’s incentive program, promises and pitfalls of EMR technology, issues related to standardization and the range of EMR vendors from which a provider can choose. Importantly, chapter two provides a detailed and highly instructional account of the experiences that a range of primary care providers have had in implementing EMR systems. Chapter three discusses how to effectively choose an EMR system, while chapters four and five cover all of the vital pre-implementation and implementation issues in establishing an EMR system in the primary care environment. Finally, chapter six discusses how to optimize and maintain a new EMR system to achieve the full cost savings desired. Concise, direct, but above all honest in recognizing the challenges in choosing and implementing an electronic health record in primary care, Electronic Medical Records: A Practical Guide for Primary Care has been written with the busy primary care physician in mind.
Re-Engineering Health Care
Author: Michael R. McGuire
Major goals of health care in the 21st century are to make health care more efficient and less costly. These goals can be accomplished by implementation of evidence-based care; greater coordination of patient care; implementation of preventive care and wellness measures; and the evaluation of outcomes of care to identify improved ways to provide care. A universal patient medical record can help achieve these goals of more efficient and less costly health care.
A Project Plan to Develop One
Author: Michael McGuire
This book describes how an automated patient medical record could be built that could evolve into a universal patient record. Such a universal patient record would change medical care from a focus on short-term care to one oriented to long-term, preventive-care. It would remove patient care from being the province of the single physician to that of the responsibility of many different healthcare providers, possibly located anywhere in the world.
