Date:3/23/2010

A topical new book about using informatics to reduce healthcare costs edited by Stephan Kudyba, an assistant professor in the NJIT School of Management, will be released early this May. Healthcare Informatics: Improving Efficiency and Productivity (CRC Press) addresses the incorporation of information technologies and information management by healthcare providers to increase the efficiencies of their operations to help reduce costs.

The text describes evolving areas of efficiency in the healthcare industry due to healthcare informatics enhancements. Beginning with an overview of how information management can enhance organizational efficiency, the book delves into how informatics can impact productivity for healthcare providers and reduce costs. It stresses the incorporation of available information technologies along with appropriate management tactics to ensure the most effective informatics outcomes that can drive efficiencies.

Kudyba addresses project management in healthcare, knowledge management, decision-support systems, business intelligence, Six Sigma, and advanced analytics such as data mining. The book includes robust illustrations of successful informatics implementations at major healthcare organizations such as CPOE, e-commerce kiosks, business intelligence and the creation of digital resources, data mining and alert systems.

Kudyba incorporates both established management and economic theory along with business applications in his research and teaching activities. His research focus includes strategic management and operational productivity and efficiency, which incorporates information systems, quantitative methods such as data mining, information and knowledge management and business intelligence.

Kudyba teaches data mining, knowledge management and financial management at the graduate level. He has more than 15 years of private sector experience. He received an MBA from Lehigh University and a PhD in economics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
