The recently enacted healthcare reform and the terms of the reform have propelled health information technology (HIT) to the forefront. The use of HIT has the potential to increase life expectancy, lower expenses, reduce the number of errors made in medical care, and improve transparency.
Impact of Healthcare Informatics on Quality of Patient Care and Health Services (PDF) examines the various types of organizations by taking an integrated approach. These types of organizations include hospitals that are not for profit, community health centers, hospitals that are for profit, and government hospitals. Doing so will provide you with a comparative perspective on how other companies adapt to and make use of the technology.
The fundamentals of HIT are covered in the first section of this booklet. It explains the considerable shifts that stakeholders can anticipate as a result of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). This section discusses the key organizational cultural factors, provides a cost-benefit analysis of electronic medical records (EMRs), details the management changes that will result from the implementation of HIT, discusses the potential hospital financing changes, and details the various organizational behavior changes that are stimulated by the implementation of HIT.
The second section of the ebook focuses on the community at large, including the patient, the government, and the physician, as well as how HIT will effect each of these groups. The following topics are covered in these chapters: the effects of HIT on the patient’s quality of care and costs; medical malpractice lawsuits involving the use of HIT; physician perceptions of HIT; changes for patients with varying socioeconomic statuses; bioterrorism; and the use of electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, the ebook has a discussion on mobile health, in which it is explained how the rapidly expanding mobile health generation is changing the face of healthcare as we know it.
