The “Daily Telegraph” Encyclopedia of Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements (“Daily Telegraph” Books)


By (author): Sarah Brewer

A bewildering range of vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements are now available, but legislation means that information about their health benefits cannot be given on packaging as it would constitute a health claim. Using an A-Z format, Dr Sarah Brewer’s guide details everything you need to know about the main vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements. It describes their benefits, possible side effects and contra-indications, together with research evidence to back their effectiveness. The second half of the book deals with over 150 individual health problems, including irritable bowel syndrome, menopause symptoms, chronic fatigue and arthritis, and suggests which supplements are likely to help.

Resilient Health Care, Volume 3: Reconciling Work-as-Imagined and Work-as-Done


This book is the 3rd volume in the Resilient Health Care series. Resilient health care is a product of both the policy and managerial efforts to organize, fund and improve services, and the clinical care which is delivered directly to patients. This volume continues the lines of thought in the first two books. Where the first volume provided the rationale and basic concepts of RHC and the second teased out the everyday clinical activities which adjust and vary to create safe care, this book will look more closely at the connections between the sharp and blunt ends. Doing so will break new ground, since the systematic study in patient safety to date with few exceptions has been limited.

Textbook of Drug Design and Discovery, Fifth Edition


Building on the success of the previous editions, the Textbook of Drug Design and Discovery, Fifth Edition, has been thoroughly revised and updated to provide a complete source of information on all facets of drug design and discovery for students of chemistry, pharmacy, pharmacology, biochemistry, and medicine. The information is presented in an up-to-date review form with an underlying and fundamental focus on the educational aspects.

Beginning with an introduction to drug design and discovery, the first eight chapters cover molecular recognition, ligand-based drug design, and biostructure-based drug design. The authors also discuss drug-like properties and decision making in medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, natural products in drug discovery, and in vivo imaging in drug discovery.

The middle six chapters provide an overview of peptide and protein drug design, prodrugs in drug design and development, and enzyme inhibitors. The authors also go through receptors (structure, function, and pharmacology), ion channels (structure and function), and neurotransmitter transporters (structure, function, and drug binding).

The following chapters address important neurotransmitter systems, GABA and glutamic acid receptors and transporter ligands, acetylcholine, histamine, dopamine and serotonin, and opioid and cannabinoid receptors. The book concludes with an examination of neglected diseases, anticancer agents, tyrosine kinase receptors, and antibiotics.

Addressing one of the more hopeful Big Data undertakings, The Digital Patient: Advancing Healthcare, Research, and Education presents a timely resource on the construction and deployment of the Digital Patient and its effects on healthcare, research, and education. The Digital Patient will not be constructed based solely on new information from all the “omics” fields; it also includes systems analysis, Big Data, and the various efforts to model the human physiome and represent it virtually. The Digital Patient will be realized through the purposeful collaboration of patients as well as scientific, clinical, and policy researchers.

The Digital Patient: Advancing Healthcare, Research, and Education addresses the international research efforts that are leading to the development of the Digital Patient, the wealth of ongoing research in systems biology and multiscale simulation, and the imminent applications within the domain of personalized healthcare. Chapter coverage includes:

  • The visible human
  • The physiological human
  • The virtual human
  • Research in systems biology
  • Multi-scale modeling
  • Personalized medicine
  • Self-quantification
  • Visualization
  • Computational modeling
  • Interdisciplinary collaboration

The Digital Patient: Advancing Healthcare, Research, and Education is a useful reference for simulation professionals such as clinicians, medical directors, managers, simulation technologists, faculty members, and educators involved in research and development in the life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering. The book is also an ideal supplement for graduate-level courses related to human modeling, simulation, and visualization.

Geek Doctor: Life as Healthcare CIO (HIMSS Book Series)


By (author): John D. Halamka

In his highly regarded blog, Life as a Healthcare CIO, John Halamka records his experiences with health IT leadership, infrastructure, applications, policies, management, governance, and standardization of data. But he also muses on topics such as reducing our carbon footprint, sustainable farming, mountain climbing, being a husband, father and son, and living life to its fullest. During his remarkable career, beginning when he ran a 35-person company that specialized in business process automation while he was an undergraduate at Stanford and a medical student at UCSF, to his current positions at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Halamka has demonstrated a unique blend of technical, clinical, and leadership knowledge and skills. Under his leadership, BIDMC has had many successes in health IT: first hospital in the country to attest to Meaningful Use, early personal health record adoption, innovation in the use of web-based provider order entry, rapid adoption of iPads, and one of the first vendor-neutral image archives. As Aneesh Chopra, former US Chief Technology Officer, writes in the Foreword of this book, “John Halamka is among the few health IT leaders with success in three sectors of our economy-public, private, and academic. No matter the role you find yourself playing in the industry, you will surely find inspiration in John Halamka’s words.”

Addresses recent advances from both the clinical and technological perspectives to provide a comprehensive presentation of m-Health

This book introduces the concept of m-Health, first coined by Robert S. H. Istepanian in 2003. The evolution of m-Health since then—how it was transformed from an academic concept to a global healthcare technology phenomenon—is discussed. Afterwards the authors describe in detail the basics of the three enabling scientific technological elements of m-Health (sensors, computing, and communications), and how each of these key ingredients has evolved and matured over the last decade. The book concludes with detailed discussion of the future of m-Health and presents future directions to potentially shape and transform healthcare services in the coming decades. In addition, this book:

  • Discusses the rapid evolution of m-Health in parallel with the maturing process of its enabling technologies, from bio-wearable sensors to the wireless and mobile communication technologies from IOT to 5G systems and beyond
  • Includes clinical examples and current studies, particularly in acute and chronic disease management, to illustrate some of the relevant medical aspects and clinical applications of m-Health
  • Describes current m-Health ecosystems and business models
