Behavioral Health Care Informatics is an essential resource for clinicians, executives, information technology officers, and consumers, as well as students and faculty in psychiatry, psychology, and social work who need to know what is possible today and what lies ahead as technology and behavioral health care converge. Covering a full range of areas from technology infrastructures to organizational issues, this book fills the void this discipline has endured by detailing how to improve information systems and facilitate the transformation of data into knowledge, allowing information to be organized and useful. Edited by leaders in the field of managed healthcare, quality improvement, psychiatry, management, and informatics, this book is a "must read" in the field of health informatics and should be a reference book for any personal, public, or educational library. The book is divided into sections serving as "modules" for the reader.
