Topic

Agree or disagree – Health Information Technology has been more beneficial in advancing provider satisfaction (HIMSS/MMGMA Collaboration)

Abstract

Healthcare has also seen much change over the last two decades in the adoption of health information technology. Hospital, clinics and other healthcare organizations have implemented electronic tools as a means to achieve greater efficiency and also improve quality of care for patients. Regulatory changes, such as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, have served as a significant stimulus for the adoption of electronic health records (EHR) across the United States.

 

With the adoption of EHR and other information technologies, while hospitals and clinics have seen certain gains, physicians have complained about usability and that it has adversely impacted the patient-physician relationship. Health IT may indeed have provided some benefits to the clinical practice, but it may also have introduced other variables that impact patient care.

 

This panel discussion explores the impact on health information technology on the clinical practice as it relates to provider satisfaction.
