Adaptive Health Management Information Systems, Third Edition, is for instructors who want to keep pace with rapid changes in the field of Healthcare Management Information Systems (HMIS) & Health Informatics (HI). This new edition is not simply an update of the previous one – it is a completely reorganized, expanded, and rewritten text containing all new contributions, special sections, and streamlined discussions of more established as well as hot current topics.

The chapters included motivating scenarios, real-world examples, recent press releases, mini-cases, stimulating chapter questions, illustrative graphics, tables, exhibits, and additional readings. Significant updates and complete revisions have been integrated throughout the text.

"Joseph Tan with Fay Cobb Payton and colleagues have done an excellent job of describing not only the technology and information needs of this dynamic time but also have done an extraordinary job of investigating those influential forces or critical success factors that have an impact on current and future-oriented health information management systems and their use to support a growing network of multi-provider health care delivery services in an age of globalization, continuing knowledge explosion and technological innovation diffusion."

--Homer H. Schmitz, PhD, Interim Dean and Professor, School of Public Health, Saint Louis University, Saint Louis, Missouri
