GHDonline is part of the Global Health Delivery Project at Harvard University.
Sudip Bhandari has suggested that it would be good to post some "Summer Reading" for those in the northern hemisphere.
From all the reading available it is very hard to select what may "interest" GHDonline participants and contributors. So here are some "hard core" texts and I also intend to post later 1 or 2 that have a "social or humanistic" focus.1. E. C. Guide To Health Informatics. 3rd ed. Press C, editor: Taylor & Francis; 2015.-An excellent resource for those who want to cover the breadth of Informatics. Enrico makes even the driest topics appealing with his examples and text.2. Topol EJ. The creative destruction of medicine: how the digital revolution will create better health care. New York, Basic Books 2012.3. Topol E. The Patient Will See You Now. First ed: Basic Books; 2015. The Topol texts are delightful reads. As has been stated elsewhere some of his postings are futuristic but I believe his intentions are to have us all "think outside the square" in the domains of technology and information management.4. Weed LL, Weed L. Medicine in Denial. Version 1.0 ed: Createspace; 2011. I have know Larry Weed for many years and he has never been one to gild the lily. His dissertation and analysis of where we stand in the modern era in health care delivery is a wake up call for the need for the health professions to change how we do things while using the appropriate tools............more soon
One book that I found really interesting as an overview for medicalinformatics is the Shortliffe book listed below, though I don't know howmany of you will have access to it.Shortliffe, E. H., L. E. Perreault, G. Wiederhold, and L. M. Fagan. *MedicalInformatics: Computer Applications in Health Care and Biomedicine* . 2nded. New York, NY: Springer, 2003. ISBN: 9780387984728.The other thing that I've been doing is looking into the MIT OpenCourseWaresite for interesting readings, and I think this course from 2009 was andstill is very interesting.http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/health-sciences-and-technology/hst-921-information...Do others have articles or sites that they've read lately that they foundinteresting?Joaquín___________________________________________________________________Gerente de Desarrollo, eHealth Systems <http://www.ehs.cl/>Research Fellow, Escuela de Medicina de Harvard <http://hms.harvard.edu/>Moderador, GHDOnline.org <http://www.ghdonline.org/>
Not directly informatics related but fascinating in terms of open source platforms is Robin Chase's Peers Inc http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1610395549/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1434137369&sr=8-1...
