W. Ed Hammond, PhD writes the foreword for a newly published comprehensive reference book titled, “Electronic Health Records for Quality Nursing and Health Care” . The book is written by author, Tiffany Kelley, Ph.D., MBA, RN, Founder and CEO, Nightingale Apps, LLC, Affiliate, Duke University, Associate Adjunct Professor, Northeastern University and is published by DEStech Publications, Inc.

Excerpt from the Dr. Hammond’s foreword:

“The Electronic Health Record (EHR) is the centerpiece of the effective use of informatics in health and health care. As we create big data and increasingly depend on decision making with Computer Decision Support, quality becomes a major concern. We are not yet at the level of quality we need for the important use of data and extraction of knowledge. Electronic Health Records for Quality Nursing & Health Care provides an opportunity to view the changing roles of nurses to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by technology and the use of that technology for healthcare. The book is an easy read and is applicable for undergraduate or graduate work, or even just for someone interested in the field. The book addresses the right level of depth on a topic–deep enough for the reader to have a good understanding yet not get bogged down in too many details…”
