              Exploring the culture and media of the Americas, this handbook places particular emphasis on collective and intertwined experiences and focuses on the transnational or hemispheric dimensions of cultural flows and geocultural imaginaries that shape the literatures, arts, media and... other cultural expressions in the Americas. The Routledge Handbook to the Culture and Media of the Americas charts the pervasive, asymmetrical flows of cultural products and capital and their importance in the development of the Americas. The volume offers a comprehensive understanding of how Inter-American communication is constituted, framed and structured and covers the artistic and political dimensions that have shaped literature, art and popular culture in the region. Forty-six chapters cover a range of inter-American key concepts and dynamics, divided into two main parts: Literature and Music deals with inter-American entanglements of artistic expressions in the Western Hemisphere, including music, dance, literary genres and developments. Media and Visual Cultures explores the inter-American dimension of media production in the hemisphere, including cinema and television, photography and art, journalism, radio, digital culture and issues such as freedom of expression and intellectual property. This multidisciplinary approach will be of interest to a broad array of academic scholars and students in history, sociology, political science cultural, postcolonial, gender, literary and globalization studies.

              We are in the early stages of the next big platform shift in healthcare computing. Fueled by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the cloud, AI is already transforming the way health and medical services are provided. As the industry transitions from static digital repositories to in...telligent systems there will be winners and losers in the race to innovate and automate the provision of services. Critical to success will be the role leaders play in shaping the use of AI to be less artificial and more intelligent in support of improving processes to deliver care and keep people healthy and productive across all care settings. This book defines key technical, process, people and ethical issues that will need to be understood and addressed in planning and executing an effective AI plan. It provides clinical and business leaders with a framework for successfully moving organizations from the aspiration to execution phase of intelligent systems to improve clinical, operational and financial performance. Written for clinical and business leaders in health, this book defines Artificial Intelligence and its role in driving digital transformation to improve clinical, operational and financial outcomes of provider, payer and public health organizations worldwide. It provides readers with an in-depth (but non-technical) look at the technology building blocks of AI (e.g. machine learning, cognitive services, bots) with real-world use cases cited along the way to illustrate the power of AI in healthcare settings. This book defines a practical planning framework empowering clinical, business and IT leaders to understand AI and create an organizational plan to implement intelligent solutions that increase the effectiveness of every worker in achieving the goals and objectives of health and medical organizations.
