What is Health IT?

Health IT (or HIT) refers to the technologies and tools that allow health care professionals and patients to store, share and analyze health information instantaneously.

To support the development and adoption of a nationwide HIT infrastructure, Congress enacted and President Obama signed the HITECH Act of 2009. The Act seeks to substantially expand the electronic use and exchange of health information to:

  • Improve the quality and continuity of health care, the delivery of health care services, patient health outcomes, and population health
  • Increase efficiencies
  • Decrease costs
  • Increase overall health care value
