The impact of health information technology on patient safety

The benefits of health information technology (IT) include its ability to store and retrieve data; the ability to rapidly communicate patient information in a legible format; improved medication safety through increased legibility, which potentially decreases the risk of medication errors; Technology helps contribute to patient-centered care by fostering communication between providers and patients via online portals, text messaging, and email. It also increases access to information such as online medical records, which can improve self-monitoring and patient convenience. Health informatics can have a significant part in this process. By properly collecting, analyzing and leveraging these numbers, professionals can use data to improve processes, identify at-risk patients, enhance efficiency and advance research, all in the pursuit of improved patient outcomes.
