About the Product

MANAGEMENT OF HEALTH INFORMATION: FUNCTIONS & APPLICATIONS, 2E explores the integrated management model prevalent in health care settings and prepares students to become effective health information managers. Sharply focused on decision making, team building, and managing new technologies, the text addresses the key principles of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling to meet the information needs of health care facilities.
