Global Health Informatics

Edited by Leo Anthony G. Celi, Hamish S. F. Fraser, Vipan Nikore, Juan Sebastián Osorio and Kenneth Paik
Principles of eHealth and mHealth to Improve Quality of Care
The widespread usage of mobile phones that bring computational power and data to our fingertips has enabled new models for tracking and battling disease. The developing world in particular has become a proving ground for innovation in eHealth (using communication and technology tools in healthcare) and mHealth (using the affordances of mobile technology in eHealth systems). In this book, experts from a variety of disciplines--among them computer science, medicine, public health, policy, and business--discuss key concepts, frameworks, examples, and lessons learned in designing and implementing digital health systems in the developing world.

The contributors consider such topics as global health disparities and quality of care; aligning eHealth strategies with government policy; the role of monitoring and evaluation in improving care; databases, patient registries, and electronic health records; the lifecycle of a digital health system project; software project management; privacy and security; and evaluating health technology systems.


About the Editors:
Leo Anthony G. Celi, originally from Manila, Philippines, is an attending physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, and Clinical Research Director of the Laboratory of Computational Physiology at the MIT Institute for Medical Engineering and Science. Leo Anthony Celi and Kenneth Paik codirect Sana at the MIT Institute for Medical Engineering and Science.

Hamish S. F. Fraser is Associate Professor of eHealth in the Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics at the University of Leeds, UK. He was previously the director of Informatics at the Health Care NGO Partners In Health and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard University. He cofounded the Open source EHR system OpenMRS, now used in more than 60 countries. His research focuses on the evaluation of eHealth systems Worldwide.

Vipan Nikore is an internal medicine physician at Trillium Health Partners, lecturer at University of Toronto, and was a visiting research scientist at the MIT Institute for Medical Engineering and Science.

Juan Sebastián Osorio is a biomedical engineer from Escuela de Inginería de Antioquia and Universidad Corporacion para Estudios en la Salud in Medellin, Colombia. He was named by Technology Review as one of the world’s top innovators under 35 for designing monitors to detect breathing problems in premature infants.

Kenneth Paik is a Research Scientist at the MIT Institute for Medical Engineering, where he teaches courses in global health informatics to improve quality of care and secondary analysis of electronic health records.

The Vanishing Middle Class

Peter Temin
Prejudice and Power in a Dual Economy
The United States is becoming a nation of rich and poor, with few families in the middle. In this book, MIT economist Peter Temin offers an illuminating way to look at the vanishing middle class. Temin argues that American history and politics, particularly slavery and its aftermath, play an important part in the widening gap between rich and poor. Temin employs a well-known, simple model of a dual economy to examine the dynamics of the rich/poor divide in America, and outlines ways to work toward greater equality so that America will no longer have one economy for the rich and one for the poor.

Many poorer Americans live in conditions resembling those of a developing country—substandard education, dilapidated housing, and few stable employment opportunities. And although almost half of black Americans are poor, most poor people are not black. Conservative white politicians still appeal to the racism of poor white voters to get support for policies that harm low-income people as a whole, casting recipients of social programs as the Other—black, Latino, not like "us." Politicians also use mass incarceration as a tool to keep black and Latino Americans from participating fully in society. Money goes to a vast entrenched prison system rather than to education. In the dual justice system, the rich pay fines and the poor go to jail.

About the Author:
Peter Temin is Professor of Economics Emeritus at MIT. He is the coauthor of Keynes: Useful Economics for the World Economy (MIT Press) and of The Leaderless Economy.

Einstein’s Unfinished Symphony

Marcia Bartusiak
The Story of a Gamble, Two Black Holes, and a New Age of Astronomy
In February 2016, astronomers announced that they had verified the last remaining prediction of Einstein’s general theory of relativity—vibrations in space-time, called gravitational waves. Humanity can now tune in to a cosmic orchestra. We have heard the chirp of two black holes dancing toward a violent union. We will hear the cymbal crashes from exploding stars, the periodic drumbeats from swiftly rotating pulsars, and maybe even the echoes from the Big Bang itself.

Marcia Bartusiak was one of the first to report on the new generation of observatories, showing the motivations of the detectors’ creators and the gamble they made to prove Einstein right when all other attempts had failed. She traces the quest of astronomers to build the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors, the most accurate measuring devices humans have created, and the discovery of gravitational waves, revealing the brilliance, personalities, and luck required to start a new age of astronomy.


About the author:
Marcia Bartusiak is professor of the practice, graduate program in science writing, at MIT, and the award-winning author of six previous books, including most recently The Day We Found the Universe.
