If you’ve been monitoring new, relevant technologies, then you may know the difference between good and bad Health IT. Finding patients, evaluating test results and more everyday activities can either be helped or hampered by the information systems that healthcare professionals currently use.

If you’ve been monitoring new, relevant technologies, then you may know the difference between good and bad Health IT. Finding patients, evaluating test results and more everyday activities can either be helped or hampered by the information systems that healthcare professionals currently use.

While over half of all physicians and approximately 80% of hospitals have started keeping electronic medical records, it’s important to note that these systems aren’t exactly foolproof. This can potentially lead to a number of dangerous medical errors and create a poor experience for patients.

The infographic below takes a look at six different instances where examples of good and bad Health IT exist. These areas include finding patients, evaluating test results, entering case information, ordering prescriptions, dealing with dosing, and discharging patients.

As time passes, technology will advance and improvements will be made to combat these types of errors so that systems are able to run in a safe and efficient manner.
