Health Information Technology (HIT) is moving beyond regulatory measures to a “tipping point” for adoption and implementation.
HIT can support you in improving health outcomes, make your job easier and save your organization money. Soon, all payers will require behavioral health agencies to use electronic health records. The people you serve also increasingly rely on mobile devices and technology for information and use mobile devices to track their health (from counting calories and mapping exercise to monitoring their drinking).
Are you ready to help your organization be an early adopter, or do you plan to stay behind the curve? Are you keeping up to date with the latest technology so you can meet your customers where they are?
Learn how to implement (and finance) the latest in HIT in a new self-paced online course from SAMHSA’s BHbusiness, Planning for the Next Generation of HIT.
The course includes six modules that can be completed at your own pace and covers:
- Why HIT is important to your business operations
- Ethical issues related to HIT application
- The types of technologies available to providers
- Technologies to support self-management
- Assessing and planning HIT implementation
- Financing HIT implementation
HIT adoption can improve your efficiency and support quality care. Take the course to assess your organization’s readiness to implement the latest HIT and learn what steps you can take to make HIT adoption happen.
