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.
The HIT research in the department explores interdisciplinary research questions by using quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methodologies. The research activities often involve our colleagues who hold positions in health care related companies, hospitals, and other research institutions.
