Inside Health Information Technology

A rapidly expanding field, health information technology covers the management of patients' medical records and the computer resources needed to organize and utilize the information contained in them. In 2010, the government was implementing new standards in health information technology that encouraged physician practices and hospitals to convert their paper records into an electronic format (www.hhs.gov). This transition would require a large number of information technology professionals to specialize in health care applications.
