Abstract
The eighth edition of this well-respected book continues to promote an awareness of the dimensions and complexities involved in caring for people from diverse cultural backgrounds. Completely revised and updated, CULTURAL DIVERSITY IN HEALTH AND ILLNESS examines the differences existing within North America by probing the health care system and consumers, and examples of traditional health beliefs and practices among selected populations. An emphasis on the influences of recent social, political, and demographic changes helps to explore the issues and perceptions of health and illness today, while new introductory and capstone chapters help place material within perspective. An essential for any health-care professional, this book sets the standard for cultural perspectives and more importantly HEALTH–the balance of the person, both within one’s being–physical, mental, and spiritual–and in the outside world–natural, communal, and metaphysical. (Terms, such as HEALTH, are written this way to emphasize holistic meaning.)

Abstract
Huge amounts of money are spent on electronic health record (EHR) and other healthcare information technology (HIT) systems each year, and the challenge is to ensure these systems are effective on every level. Simply recreating paper-based processes on these systems does not significantly improve quality, efficiency or the financial aspects of setting up these services. While there are excellent resources available on healthcare IT and others that detail innovation strategies in healthcare, there is little material providing real life examples and explanations of how to combine these two powerful tools. Innovation with Information Technologies in Healthcare thus serves to fill this gap by using real life cases to detail how information technology systems have been used in an innovative fashion to solve the types of problems faced every day in healthcare. The Editors and their carefully selected group of contributors, ranging from multi-hospital organizations to small clinics, have assembled a book that describes successful cases covering EHR, Telemedicine and other health IT experiences, in which brilliant and innovative uses of healthcare IT have improved quality, efficiency and value. Each case chapter includes a story about the impact of these HIT innovations on patients, an explanation on the origin of the innovation, details on how the innovation evolved from idea to reality, the real world results of the innovation and lessons learned along the way. Additionally, each of these chapters conclude with thoughts on future HIT innovations from each contributor.
