This course is designed to introduce students to health information technologies (HIT) and how they are changing delivery of care in the US--- including effects on efficiency, equity, effectiveness and patient satisfaction. Students explore issues related to electronic medical records, standards for meaningful use, personal health records, public health information systems, interoperability of HIT, and mHealth. Students examine the impact of federal government intervention to increase HIT adoption, and compare the use of HIT in the US with other industrialized countries. Students apply their knowledge by working through an in-depth case study of an implementation of HIT in a health care delivery organization or public health department. Readings introduce theoretical frameworks related to HIT, including the Technology Acceptance Model. Assignments include a policy memo, an individual case analysis, and in-class quizzes. www.bu.edu
