This cutting-edge volume is the first book that provides you with practical guidance on the use of medical device data for bioinformatics modeling purposes. You learn how to develop original methods for communicating with medical devices within healthcare enterprises and assisting with bedside clinical decision making. The book guides in the implementation and use of clinical decision support methods within the context of electronic health records in the hospital environment. This highly valuable reference also teaches budding biomedical engineers and bioinformaticists the practical benefits of using medical device data. Supported with over 100 illustrations, this all-in-one resource discusses key concepts in detail and then presents clear implementation examples to give you a complete understanding of how to use this knowledge in the field.
