Technology in diagnostic tools and billing systems has been a mainstay of the physician practice for years. Yet, physicians today are encouraged to adopt newer technologies, such as electronic medical records and ePrescribing, that many believe will improve patient safety, improve practice efficiency, and reduce costs across the health care system. More and more physicians are using health information technology (HIT). Sooner or later, its use may be required. We recommend that you bookmark this page, and let the Pennsylvania Medical Society be your source for news and resources to help you move forward with HIT in your practice.
