Hospital Celebrates National Health IT Week
Health information technology improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors, and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.
To mark the important role health information technology plays in improving healthcare delivery in America, Northern Hospital and others across the U.S. have joined together to celebrate National Health Information Technology (NHIT) Week, September 12-16, 2011.
NHIT is a collaborative forum celebrating key healthcare constituents—vendors, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations, and consumer protection groups— working together to elevate national attention to the necessity of advancing health IT.
“Our participation in National Health IT Week highlights our organization’s commitment to ensure health information technology is integrated, interactive, interoperable, and intelligent to provide the best patient outcomes, said Robbie Hall, Chief Information Officer. “By working together we can leverage the technology needed to promote the betterment of our healthcare system.”
