Braintree, Mass., September 20, 2016 – Health information technology improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors, and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.
To mark the important role health information technology plays in improving healthcare delivery in America, Summit Healthcare and others across the U.S. have joined together to celebrate National Health Information Technology (NHIT) Week, September 26-30, 2016.
