The Computerization of Behavioral Healthcare offers practical and comprehensive information about the computer technologies and trAnds that directly influence the clinical practice, management, and communications of behavioral health care.The editors gathered experts in the fields of clinical practice, health care administration, technological change, and public policy to develop this extremely useful, understandable resource. In nontechnical terms, the contributors demonstrate how computers and networked information systems help to contain costs, measure and improve clinical outcomes, and make any behavioral healthcare organization or practice more competitive in the marketplace. In addition, they offer down–to–earth suggestions for overcoming human resistance, and making a smooth transition from a traditional paper system to a high–tech computer operation.
