About this book

Introduction

As the health care industry becomes increasingly dependent on electronic information, the need for sophisticated information retrieval systems and for knowledgeable people to design, purchase, and use them also increases. Although a number of books have been devoted to the mechanics of on-line searching and the structure of general retrieval systems, no book has addressed the specific needs and concerns of health care information retrieval systems. Dr. Hersh's book fills that gap.
