DSU recognizes National Health Information Technology week
Health information technology improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors, and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.
To mark the important role health information technology plays in improving healthcare delivery in America, Dakota State University in Madison and others across the U.S. have joined together to celebrate National Health Information Technology (NHIT) Week this week. The theme for the week is “One Voice, One Vision: Transforming Health and Care”.
DSU Interim President Doctor David Borofsky says that the university’s Health Information Management programs, along with the Center for the Advancement of Health I-T and its many initiatives, are working with the state’s providers to leverage health information technology for the betterment of the healthcare system.
