Robert Hoyt MD FACP received his undergraduate education and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Virginia and his medical education at Virginia Commonwealth University. While still on active duty in the US Navy he became involved with multiple implementations of health information technology.

Textbook information is available at Textbook proceeds are donated to informatics-related educational initiatives.
