Health Information Technology

Health Information Technology (HIT) is the interdisciplinary study of the design, development, adoption and application of IT-based innovations in health services delivery, management and planning. HIT plays a crucial role in terms of improving the quality of care, reducing health care costs, and enabling better health outcomes.
