Conrick, Moya, Walker, Sue M., Scott, Peter, & Frean, Isobel (2006) Health Information Interchange. In Conrick, Moya (Ed.) Health informatics : transforming healthcare with technology. Thomson Social Science Press, South Melbourne, Vic., pp. 20-38.


Health is information intensive: it has many disparate groups with multiple perspectives and subcultures. Each group sees things slightly differently, but they must all capture, communicate, reliably retrieve and re-use information between each other and across multiple settings. This chapter examines some of the methods used to represent data and to enable information interchange across the health spectrum.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
