Having access to timely and reliable patient information is critical to saving lives and delivering quality care. Medical information technology is what enables this vital information to be stored, managed, accessed and shared electronically amongst physicians and medical staff throughout the hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Quick access to up-to-date patient information at the point of care translates into superior care, treatment and outcomes for patients; it can prevent unnecessary repetition of tests as well as delays, improve patient flow and considerably reduce wait times as well as the occurrence of medical errors, misdiagnoses and other patient safety issues. Investing in an up-to-date, robust IT infrastructure is vital to ensure that the hospital’s critical services will be available at all times to the population.
