This overview provides informatics nurses, physicians, pharmacists, dentists, dieticians, and other clinical professionals with a solid foundation of knowledge of each SDLC phase, positioning them for success within any clinical system. Coverage includes: Essential tools for project management Patient safety and engagement Security and privacy concepts Healthcare clinical decision support
