Health Information Technology


Health information technology, electronic medical records, and electronic prescriptions are but three examples of how technology is changing the health care sector.

Types Of Health Information Exchange

Information technology has made significant contributions to our world, namely in the medical industry. With the increased use of electronic medical records (EMR), telehealth services, and mobile technologies like tablets and smart phones, physicians and patients are both seeing the benefits that these new medical technologies are bringing.

Health Information Technology Includes:


   Electronic Medical records (EMRs).
Your doctor keeps records of your health information, such as your history of diseases and which medications you're taking. Up until now, most doctors stored these in paper files.
EMRs ("electronic medical records") are electronic systems that store your health information.
EMRs allow doctors to more easily keep track of your health information and may enable them to access your information when you have a problem even if their office is closed.  EMRs also make it easier for your doctor to share information with specialists and others so that everyone who needs your information has it available when they need it.
Some EMRs may also allow you to log in to a web portal to view your own health record, lab results, and treatment plan, and to email your doctor. 

   Patient health records (PHRs).
A PHR is a lot like an EMR, except that you control what kind of information goes into it.
You can use a PHR to keep track of information from your doctor visits, but the PHR can also reflect your life outside the doctor's office and your health priorities, such as tracking your food intake, exercise, and blood pressure. Sometimes, your PHR can link with your doctor's EMR.

  E-prescribing.
A paper prescription can get lost or misread. E-prescribing allows your doctor to communicate directly with your pharmacy. This means you can go to the pharmacy to pick up medicine without having to bring the paper prescription.

Asset Management

Consider these situations commonly observed in hospitals: 1) What is common between infusion pumps and taxi cabs? There are hundreds in circulation, but you can never find one when you need one. 2) With large number of patients being handled everyday in hospitals, how do you keep a tab on your patients? As for example, if a patient is trying to access a restricted area, how can you find about it? There is always a crowd of things and people going around in a hospital that needs to be tracked. There are doctors, nurses, patients, and visitors who need to be kept track of. There is equipment that needs to be prevented from getting stolen. O ne of the biggest challenges in asset-intensive industries is how to effectively manage all their different types of asset. These organizations must deal with  physical assets that require ongoing maintenance and repair. Managing human resources—the most valuable asset of all—comes with its own special set of challenges Coming bac

The Benefits of an Online Scheduling System

Commonly referred to by such names as online scheduling software, online booking applications and online scheduler, an online scheduling system is a Web-based application that allows individuals to conveniently and securely book their appointments and reservations online through any Web-connected device, such as a computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet. They typically access the online scheduling system through a “Book Now” button found on a Web site or page, or from a URL provided to them by the medial, healthcare or wellness facility. Once a date and time are selected, the system will automatically confirm the booking and instantly record it within the system, without any staff action needed. In addition to online scheduling, online scheduling systems also come equipped with other beneficial features like automated e-mail and text message reminders, which the system sends out to patients and booked individuals on a specific date prior to their scheduled appointment; recordin
