Healthcare IT Research
Increasing costs, conflicts in excellence and inefficiency are the prime challenges faced by the global healthcare system. These challenges have created an improved sense of necessity to meet the objective of improving healthcare for patients and reducing the cost of treatment by healthcare providers. In order to meet these objectives, both the public and private healthcare providers have spearheaded new forms of payment reform and care delivery. Among these initiatives, healthcare IT plays a crucial and fundamental role as a new model of patient care and has immense potential to improve the overall excellence, safety and efficiency of the healthcare system. Currently, there are very few healthcare providers who have fully adopted healthcare IT but surveys indicate that healthcare providers are striving towards improving their investment or funding towards IT. Drivers for funding include the assurance of safety, quality and efficiency gains by the healthcare providers. However, the barriers include intricacy of IT execution, high cost of implementation, which often requires noteworthy infrastructural changes and work process. The Health Information Technology and Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was enacted into law in 2009 as a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. According to this act, hospitals and eligible professionals including dentists, physicians, podiatrists, etc. will receive financial incentives for their meaningful use of certified Electronic Health Records (EHR).
