The Importance of Information Technology in Healthcare
« on: October 27, 2018, 12:09:35 AM »
Improvements in information technology have allowed for a great reform in healthcare. Most medical offices can now send and receive digital medical information from doctors you’ve had in the past. Changes like this allow costs to be lowered and increase the number of time doctors can spend on patients compared to paperwork.

Security improvements with information technology have made it so that your medical information is secure no matter where it’s sent. You can even have prescriptions sent digitally to local pharmacies at most medical offices. You can read about the privacy of your online medical records from HHS. Learn about changes in the healthcare industry with an online class.

Along with the changing the amount of paperwork required at your medical office, information technology has also updated the technology a doctor can use to diagnose or treat you. Using computerized axial tomography (CAT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, the doctor can use a computer to create detailed images of your organs along with creating; images that show changes in your body chemistry and blood flow. This can be helpful to find illnesses that aren’t found with blood tests or other medical tests.
