Diffusion and adaption of Healthcare Information Technology
Healthcare Information Technology (HIT)is widely regarded as a key to improving the quality of
healthcare and potentially reducing its cost. Healthcare Information technology can contribute
significantly to quality improvements in healthcare institutions. Information Technology (IT) has the potential to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare. There are challenges associated with implementing information technologies, but they are not insurmountable.However, adoption and benefits have not been uniformly distributed and reliability of success has been difficult. So, it is necessary to improve the quality. Suggestions are offered as to how managers can adopt information technology systems to improve the delivery of service to thehealthcare consumer/patients. Limitations of the paper and scope of further research are mentioned at the end to encourage further development in this section.
