Abstract
Often we assume consumer health informatics to be only focused on Western medicine; however, this is a limiting view. Consumer health informatics is also as relevant to other forms of healthcare such as Chinese medicine (CM). Key issues and considerations that should be considered when designing CM clinic system are presented in this chapter. These findings are particularly relevant to today’s healthcare challenges, as healthcare reform agendas consider options and decisions to ensure effective, efficient, and efficacious value-driven patient-centric healthcare solutions.
