If you haven’t switched to electronic health records (EHRs) just yet, now is the perfect time to make that leap. Hospitals and healthcare providers are implementing EHRs across the board to allow for better patient care and good management of patient information. EHRs are just a small portion of the improved health IT ecosystem being used to improve care, according to studies complied by the University of Cincinnati. Systems such as better medical imaging and access to healthcare information through online portals and resource centers are also making healthcare more accessible than ever.
It doesn’t stop at our healthcare industry either. Universities and their online MSHI programs are now offering students a chance to become health IT specialists through courses that focus on information systems. These changes will continue to bring positive changes to the entire healthcare system for years to come.
