Abstract: Discusses the many different ways in which informatics and telematics can be used to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of services in the health sector. Addressed to health managers and professionals, the book combines an explanation of current computer technologies with concrete examples of situations where computers can greatly facilitate managerial tasks. Applications range from the microcomputer maintenance of medical records in primary health care to mainframe-based systems for controlling drug acquisition and distribution at the national level. A glossary of well over 100 terms completes the text
