This introductory resource outlines key concepts in understanding, developing, implementing, and maintaining clinical information and automation systems. This essential guide is designed for all pharmacists and covers an introduction to major concepts of informatics such as ePrescribing, CPOE, bar-coding, smart pumps, and the pharmacist's role in EHR.
