Foundations of Digital Health

Health information technology (HIT) can improve cost and efficiency when systems are properly evaluated, implemented, and optimized. Effective IT systems are also increasingly being associated with better patient outcomes and reduced costs. However, healthcare has lagged behind other industries in the adoption of IT systems. A major challenge to healthcare professionals is to articulate the major underlying technical concepts involved in the jargon-filled world of health information technology. This foundational course provides a working knowledge of key HIT definitions and concepts. It is not designed to turn students into network administrators or software developers; rather it is to equip students to become an active and valuable participant – or even a team leader – in the evaluation, selection, implementation and ongoing operation of health information systems.
