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, Flexible Systems and others across the U.S. have joined together to celebrate National Health Information Technology (NHIT) Week , September 12-16, 2011.
With the NHIT Week theme: One Voice, One Vision: Transforming Health and Care, Flexible Systems will offer free Health Information Technology security assessments to private practices across Long Island, NY.
