ISAS 630: Project Part I
Title: The effects of Health Information technology on the quality of care outcomes. Abstract: Objective: The purpose of the project is to examine whether health information technology has impacted the quality of care outcomes of patients. Method: Assessed the scholarly output of health information technology and quality of care published knowledge relevant to the effects of the patient safety and quality of care outcomes due to health information technologies. Analysis of the identified scholarly and peer reviewed articles, their journals and citation from Medline, CIHNAL and other databases was performed to determine the effects of health information technology on the outcome of quality of care. Findings: Nine articles met the criteria for review. Most articles addressed the one or more quality of care outcomes in various health populations using health information technology in various form and shape. The authors identified gaps between existing literatures and suggested that future studies should focus on specific impact of health information technology and the quality of care outcomes. Conclusion: This project seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of the health information technologies and its impact on the quality of care outcome suggested in all the articles analyzed. One or more articles suggested that the most advanced health information technology have the greatest payoff in improving the quality of care, without detrimentally impacting the patient experience. Introduction: The health care organizations have been investing heavily on medical information systems world-wide with the sole objectives to improve healthcare decision making, the quality of care outcomes and thereby increasing its efficiency. Effective communication between physicians, nurses and other allied health...
