When I was talking about using the electronic health record as a measurement tool for quality improvement studies, a colleague recommended that I look at a book, Evaluation Methods in Biomedical Informatics by Friedman and Wyatt. I don’t have a copy yet, but the preview offered by Amazon is intriguing.
Charles P. Friedman and Jeremy Wyatt. Evaluation Methods in Biomedical Informatics, @nd edition. 2006. Springer: New York NY. ISBN 1441920722.
