Health Information Technology Model

Health Information Technology Model

The health information technology (HIT) model involves the use of technology to improve care. HIT can be used in conjunction with other care coordination program models, such as Accountable Care Organizations, to support care coordination by:

  • Facilitating the relationship between patients, care coordinators, and healthcare providers
  • Improving communication among healthcare providers, beyond the boundaries of a single organization
  • Giving providers and patients accessible, actionable, and timely information
  • Providing clinical decision support
  • Helping providers to make appointments, recall instructions, review discharge plans and medical records, manage their medications, and provide health coaching
  • Facilitating patient care transitions from hospital to home
  • Engaging patients in their healthcare
