Data integrity is a critical aspect to the design, implementation, and usage of any system which stores, processes, or retrieves data. The overall intent of any data integrity technique is the same: ensure data is recorded exactly as intended and, upon later retrieval, ensure the data is the same as it was when originally recorded. Any alternation to the data is then traced to the person who made the modification. The integrity of data in a patient’s electronic health record is critical to ensuring the safety of the patient. This book is relevant to production systems and quality control systems associated with the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and medical device products and updates the practical information to enable better understanding of the controls applicable to e-records. The book highlights the e-records suitability implementation and associated risk-assessed controls, and e-records handling. The book also provides updated regulatory standards from global regulatory organizations such as MHRA, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (UK); FDA, Food and Drug Administration (US); National Medical Products Association (China); TGA, Therapeutic Goods Administration (Australia); SIMGP, Russia State Institute of Medicines and Good Practices; and the World Health Organization, to name a few.

Physician adoption of electronic medical records (EMRs) has become a national priority. It is said that EMRs have the potential to greatly improve patient care, to provide the data needed for more effective population management and quality assurance of both an individual practice’s patients and well as patients of large health care systems, and the potential to create efficiencies that allow physicians to provide this improved care at a far lower cost than at present. There is currently a strong U.S. government push for physicians to adopt EMR technology, with the Obama administration emphasizing the use of EMRs as an important part of the future of health care and urging widespread adoption of this technology by 2014. This timely book for the primary care community offers a concise and easy to read guide for implementing an EMR system. Organized in six sections, this invaluable title details the general state of the EMR landscape, covering the government’s incentive program, promises and pitfalls of EMR technology, issues related to standardization and the range of EMR vendors from which a provider can choose. Importantly, chapter two provides a detailed and highly instructional account of the experiences that a range of primary care providers have had in implementing EMR systems. Chapter three discusses how to effectively choose an EMR system, while chapters four and five cover all of the vital pre-implementation and implementation issues in establishing an EMR system in the primary care environment. Finally, chapter six discusses how to optimize and maintain a new EMR system to achieve the full cost savings desired. Concise, direct, but above all honest in recognizing the challenges in choosing and implementing an electronic health record in primary care, Electronic Medical Records: A Practical Guide for Primary Care has been written with the busy primary care physician in mind.

Recent Advances in Imaging the Prostate presents articles by some of the leading investigators in imaging cancer of the prostate (PCa). These articles address the state-of-the-art in imaging PCa using magnetic-resonance imaging and spectroscopy, ultrasound spectroscopy and elastography, and positron-emission tomography. They offer hope that new, reliable and clinically usable means of imaging PCa may be on the horizon. The need for improved means of PCa imaging is urgent, because current conventional, clinical and imaging methods are seriously deficient in depicting cancerous foci within the prostate gland, and consequently, current methods are of limited use in guiding needle biopsies, planning treatment and staging disease. However, the articles in this publication describe advanced techniques that show exciting promise for overcoming the limitations of current conventional methods, and that offer the possibility of making significant breakthroughs in PCa imaging. Alone or in combination, these advanced imaging methods will hopefully satisfy the urgent need for reliable means of imaging PCa, and will enable a quantum step forward in managing the cancer that, for men in most developed countries, is the most common non-dermatological cancer and the second most common cause of cancer death.
