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. One 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 back to the answer to the a…

Integrating with Medical Imaging: Adhering to DICOM standard

Ask any physician, and they will tell you that imaging is a key component of the patient health record and is often critical to diagnosis and treatment. 
With widespread use of computers in medicine, it is now possible to have "filmless" radiology department and "paperless" hospitals. To make this happen, radiology equipments using computers should be connected seamlessly and computers in a hospital need to be integrated into a network.
The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Standard describes the means of formatting and exchanging medical images and image related information to facilitate the connectivity of medical devices and systems. The DICOM Standard endorsed by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) is a result of joint efforts of users and manufacturers of medical imaging and healthcare information technology.



Integrating medical equipments of different vendors used to be a big issue. Even today with all the advancements t…
