Health Data Processing: Systemic Approaches focuses on the design of health information systems and touches on the main themes of medical informatics and public health. The book is written for health professionals in practice or training, and is especially useful for decision-makers or future decision-makers in the field of health information systems. Users will find sections on the question of reusing data for other purposes, protection of individual liberties that this data and technologies make more acute, and the irruption of large masses of genetic data and its related problems. This book develops the methodological and conceptual aspects related to these issues.

  • Proposes a methodology for the development of health information systems for the better use of digital technologies
  • Illustrates a systemic, transversal, conceptual vision that supports the complex reality of the healthcare world, where the interoperability of agents (professionals and software) is central
  • Discusses the reuse of resources of data for knowledge improvement, health security and public health
