Transforming Healthcare Quality through Information Tehnology
AbstractInformation and information exchange are crucial to the delivery of care on all levels of the health care delivery system—the patient, the care team, the health care organization, and the encompassing political-economic environment. To diagnose and treat individual patients effectively, individual care providers and care teams must have access to at least three major types of clinical information—the patient’s health record, the rapidly changing medical-evidence base, and provider orders guiding the process of patient care. In this frame, Information Technology can help healthcare organizations improve the quality of care that they provide, improve patient safety, improve cost-effectiveness, accelerate the translation of research findings into practice, improve care for the medically underserved, increase consumer involvement, improve accuracy and privacy, and increase their ability to monitor health nationally. Consequently, in the present article are presented some implementations of Information and Communication Technologies in the Health Care field.
