IS in Healthcare

Track Description

Health information systems (HIS) are a broad class of applications that use a variety of advanced information, mobile, social media and wearable technologies to collect, store, manage, process and transmit health information. HIS can aid many interdependent stakeholders, such as patients, care providers, payers, policymakers, technology vendors, platform creators and researchers. Digitization enabled through HIS has the potential to deliver better, cost-efficient and patient-centric healthcare through widespread sharing of authorized data, process transformation and proactive involvement by patients to sustain their own well-being. There is early evidence that HIS, in isolation and in combination, impact care provision and administrative processes, enhance care quality, reduce healthcare costs and facilitate information sharing across organizational boundaries. However, researchers have not found consistent results and the context of examination is still central in understanding research findings. Additionally, national and regional governments worldwide have introduced several initiatives around technology use, data integration, privacy, payment models and access to care, and the commercial sector has launched several innovations in the consumer sector, which make it easier to track and consolidate individual-level data. Increasing standardization in the healthcare industry and the widespread use of HIS among health care providers, payers and consumers have enabled the creation of large datasets, which lend themselves well to predictive modeling.
