In the world of healthcare, communication is key. Thanks to information technology, that communication can be facilitated much more effectively.
Information technology allows healthcare workers from different clinics to communicate about the needs of the patients that they care for. Communication between clinics will help reduce and will help improve the care that patients receive.
Making sure that clinics are on the same page regarding patients is crucial. If they aren’t, it can slow treatment down for the patient. Miscommunication between clinics about a patient results in errors.
Information technology reduces that possibility because it makes communication between clinics easier.
