Information technology plays a vital role in healthcare
The next decade will mark a turning point for the healthcare industry. As healthcare reform and the economy continue to present challenges, innovative advancements in healthcare information technology will provide the key not only to ensuring compliance with new legal requirements but also to reducing costs and improving patient care.
Healthcare facilities across the United States are racing to meet the increased security requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Data storage management systems are playing a fundamental role in keeping patient records in a timely, secure, and easily accessible manner. Advancements in picture archiving and communications systems (PACS), electronic medical records (EMR), and computerized physician order entry (CPOE) solutions are being implemented at a rapid pace. Physicians’ use of mobile computing is growing significantly, allowing healthcare providers to share electronic patient records and other information without delay. Almost all clinicians are using a software knowledge-based application or online reference tool each and every day. And hospitals are employing handheld mobile devices to access drug reference databases, reference manuals, and patient records.
Advances in e-prescribing and healthcare information systems are reducing medical errors and improving health outcomes for patients. Practice management solutions for physicians such as electronic scanning and storage of records are increasingly being used to enhance productivity of administration, facilitate insurance claim processing, and centralize electronic record keeping and management.
As modern medicine grows in complexity and moves beyond the capacity of human retention—there are thousands of diagnoses, drugs, and medical and surgical procedures available today—these technologies provide the necessary tools to advance patient care and service to the next level.
