The aim of this unit is to introduce health informatics knowledge and understanding of the skills and tools needed by all professionals in modern healthcare systems to provide safe, secure high quality, effective patient centred services.
By the end of the module students should have an understanding of electronic patient records, why they are so important, and also just why it is so difficult to do well.
