current healthcare climate, quality of care and patient safety issues
are generating considerable debate, chronic disease is on the increase,
and healthcare costs have reached 16% of the GDP. Successive Institute
of Medicine (IOM) reports have been pushing for wide adoption of Information
Technology (IT)-enabled solutions to improve cost efficiency without
risking quality of care. With pay-for-performance and consumer/business
driven healthcare initiatives driving IT implementations across healthcare
enterprises, such as the EMR and CPOE, IT has emerged as a powerful
force in helping to achieve multiple goals within health care organizations.
seeks to facilitate a better understanding of these IT initiatives by
providing an introduction to basic information technology concepts and
terminology, and demonstrating their application in the healthcare delivery
and management arena. The course draws on an E-learning component on
IT concepts, course slides, demo tools, Harvard Business School cases,
and website resources to integrate technology concepts with domain knowledge.
These knowledge sources are being used currently by healthcare enterprises
to improve quality of care, enhance patient safety, and re-engineer
business and care processes to increase productivity and efficiency
of the healthcare system from the perspective of multiple stakeholders.
