Optimizing Health IT for Improved Patient Safety

Optimizing Health IT for Improved Patient Safety covers the fundamental aspects of health information technology (HIT) as it relates to patient safety. The curriculum introduces an eight-dimension model that helps explain essential aspects of a HIT-enabled health care system. The course requires basic familiarity with key hardware (e.g., databases, servers, workstations, networks) and software terms (computer-based provider order entry, results review, admission/discharge/transfer).

Topics include:
• Implementing and optimizing HIT to improve health care quality and safety
• Using SAFER guides to assess, diagnose and evaluate an organization's EHR-related patient safety
• Utilizing a red flag-based approach to identifying EHR-related safety concerns
• Managing conflicts that arise between user groups
