Information Technology and Clinical Technology
Basically, establishing of strategies and objectives on the HIT program is the underlying foundation of all the other processes. Firstly, enlightenment of all stakeholders on the use of Clinical Decision-Support Systems in clinical operations is very essential; whereby errors in medication dosing will be reduced. Additionally, the adoption of electronic health records in all health centers should be made mandatory. This is so because it helps in delivering high quality and consistent medication; thus will help in boosting patent’s health. Adoption of information technology should also incorporate quality of ambulatory care. Removal of all barriers to the adoption of HIT should be carried on. Firstly, mobilization of enough financial resources to ensure full execution of the process is vital. Empowering of the personnel on the necessary knowledge and skills on the use of information technology and more so the computers. Another point of concern in the adoption of HIT is the issue of confidentiality; whereby all health centers should prioritize the issue of confidentiality thus making the HIT useful (Davis, 2002).
