Health Information Technology is used to improve clinical care. This includes using electronic health records, computerized physician order entry systems and patient portals. The EHRs can be used to store and retrieve medical information more efficiently, which could improve the patient’s care. The computerized order entry system for physicians helps to streamline procedures such as the ordering of tests and medications. It also reduces errors that could be caused by manual input.
Telemedicine apps allow patients to have remote consultations with their providers. This allows them to access more healthcare services. Portals for patients allow them to securely access their records and make online communications with their healthcare providers. These tools facilitate communication and help to reduce costs while improving the quality of care.
