[SIGCIS-Members] History of computing in medicine -- references?

Fri Feb 12 11:50:01 PST 2021

I'll vouch for Jeremy Greene's forthcoming book, The Electronic Patient: Medicine and the Challenge of New Media (Univ. of Chicago Press, hopefully soon!). Hannah Zeavin's book looks exciting, too.

The pandemic has made it clear that there is MUCH work to be done on the history of telemedicine, which is far more widely used than it was a year ago.

Jeremy Green at Johns Hopkins has a fantastic looking book on telemedicine coming out soon that should touch on this, I think. Hannah Zeavin also has a brilliant soon to be released book on teletherapy<https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/distance-cure> that would probably be relevant as well.

Dear colleagues,
A question from Katerina Vlantoni, a department colleague:
"Can you suggest references on the history of computing in medicine (beyond the book/articles by Joseph November?)"
