Why Health IT?

 

Health information technology (Health IT) makes it possible for health care providers to better manage patient care through secure use and sharing of health information - especially through the comprehensive management of health information across computerized systems and its secure exchange between consumers, providers, government and quality entities, and insurers.. Health IT includes the use of electronic health records (EHRs) instead of paper medical records to maintain people's health information.

Improving Patient Care

 

With the help of health IT, health care providers will have:

  • Information to help doctors diagnose health problems sooner, reduce medical errors, and provide safer care at lower costs.
  • The ability to better coordinate the care they give. This is especially important if a patient has a serious medical condition.
  • Accurate and complete information about a patient's health. That way they can give the best possible care, whether during a routine visit or a medical emergency.
  • A way to securely share information with patients and their family caregivers over the Internet, for patients who opt for this convenience. This means patients and their families can more fully take part in decisions about their health care.
