Health Information Technology Solutions Student’s Name: Institutional Affiliation: Problem Statement Bethany place is a facility that provides long term medical care in the Pacific Northwest currently it has a bed capacity of 40 and is hoping to increase this in the next six months by 30beds. The facility seeks to expand and acquire a nearby resident facility in order to change it into a rehabilitative care facility for chronic care patients and those recovering from acute head injury. The expansion translates to a higher pool of patients and thus more work when it comes to keeping each of their individual records. The fact that Bethany place lacks an electronic medical record and an IT team will make the work quite difficult. However the introduction of HIT will revolutionize the services provided at Bethany place make services more efficient and guarantee customer satisfaction wares and soft wares that will be installed may be too complex for the staff and errors maybe encountered in entering patient information this may translate in misdiagnosis or wrong prescription that my lead to death. This can be countered by training of personnel and supervision from the IT teams. References Bae J. Rask K. J. & Becker E. R. (2017).
