Information Technology in Health Care
Health information technology is the area of involving the design, development, creation, use and maintenance of information systems for the healthcare industry. An EHR or electronic medical record is an individual’s official, digital health record and is shared among multiple facilities and agencies. Creating a world that will better enhance the way medical professionals and patients communicate, analyze, and interoperate information crucial to improving someone quality of care.
With evolving technology comes complication that can challenge the health care provider. The challenges that are presented are lack of adaptation to new platforms, effectiveness of security/privacy, and implementation costs.
The future of healthcare technology is filled with new innovative advancements in cognitive super computers, nanotechnology, neuroprosthetics, and virtual reality. These new advancement could quite possible have the capability to help fight cancer, give amputees the opportunity to walk again, and giving the pre-op patient a virtual reality experience of what their surgical procedures will entail.
