DHIN is a Proud Partner in National Health IT Week
Annual Week-Long Event Recognizes Critical Role of HIT in U.S. Healthcare System
DOVER, DE ̶ September 26, 2016 ̶ This week, Delaware Health Information Network (DHIN) proudly partners with organizations nationwide to promote the advancement of health information technology to help improve healthcare. National Health IT Week is the premier event offering all healthcare stakeholders an opportunity to unite under one banner, expressing the benefits that health information technology (IT) brings to U.S. healthcare: “The Value of Health IT.”
Comprehensive health care reform is not possible without system-wide adoption of health information technology, which improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.
With Meaningful Use now providing the way forward, eligible providers across the country increasingly understand the benefits for themselves and their patients and are adopting Meaningful Use compliant electronic health records.
Initiated in 2006 by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), National Health IT Week has emerged as a landmark occasion for using health IT as part of the overall solution to improve America’s healthcare as a bipartisan, federally-led, market driven initiative.
The Week consists of events across the country, including National Health IT Week participants —vendors, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations and consumer protection groups— all working together to elevate national attention to the advantages of advancing health IT.
