Creating value for patients by transforming care, improving connectivity, enhancing patient access, and streamlining the regulatory process.
Health IT, or health information technology, refers to the multitude of technology tools used by physicians, nurses, health administrators, patients, insurance companies, government entities and others to compile, store, analyze and share health information. Health IT tools include electronic health records (EHR), personal health records, electronic prescription services, health-related smartphone apps and more.
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was passed in 2009 to promote the meaningful use of health IT. Since then, more and more providers across the country have adjusted their traditional collection of patient information from paper records to electronic data.
This migration has allowed health professionals to easily access patient information regardless of their location and even outside of normal clinic hours, and to share that knowledge with others currently providing care. And it has drafted patients into the process, by giving them more authority and immediate interaction with their own personal health records.
Even prescriptions, once dependent on paper, now are transmitted electronically between doctors and pharmacies to allow for improved efficiency and fewer dosage errors.
