Medical Data Management is a systematic introduction to the basic

methodology of professional clinical data management. It emphasizes

generic methods of medical documentation applicable to such diverse

tasks as the electronic patient record, maintaining a clinical trials

database, and building a tumor registry. This book is for all students

in medical informatics and health information management, and it is

ideal for both the undergraduate and the graduate levels. The book

also guides professionals in the design and use of clinical

information systems in various health care settings. It is an

invaluable resource for all health care professionals involved in

designing, assessing, adapting, or using clinical data management

systems in hospitals, outpatient clinics, study centers, health plans,


The book combines a consistent theoretical foundation of medical

documentation methods outlining their practical applicability in real

clinical data management systems. Two new chapters detail hospital

information systems and clinical trials. There is a focus on the

international classification of diseases (ICD-9 and -10) systems, as

well as a discussion on the difference between the two codes. All

chapters feature exercises, bullet points, and a summary to provide

the reader with essential points to remember. New to the Third Edition

is a comprehensive section comprised of a combined Thesaurus and

Glossary which aims to clarify the unclear and sometimes inconsistent

terminology surrounding the topic.
