Continuing Medical Education Information
Healthcare technology is a fast-changing facet of healthcare provision. In the last ten years the approach to patient care and data has shifted monumentally.
“The implementation of healthcare analytics over the last decade has provided monumental opportunities for improvement in healthcare by offering insights into hospital management, patient records and engagement, spending, diagnosis’, and more.
Under the umbrella of healthcare analytics comes the transition to Electronic Health Records, which have certainly overtaken paper records for the better. According to the American Hospital Association, by 2017, 95 percent of hospitals had adopted an EHR and 94 percent were using its data to improve patient care and organizational performance. (1.)”
In addition, “telemedicine gives patients the ability to seek care on their own time and access their health information all in one place. (2.)”
This course is designed to describe and discuss changes in patient care, emerging trends in diagnosis and treatment and discuss the benefits of challenges of embracing these significant changes.
Statement of Need:
Physicians face an increasing number of changes related to the delivery of healthcare and implementation of various types of technology.
