Since the inception of human civilization, men have been tormented by many diseases, and with time, men have developed some immunity to them. But still, in the new modern era, it has been seen that new diseases and ailments are on the ground every new year, as the recent Covid pandemic. To effectively fight these ailments, humans have developed many instruments like effective drugs, vaccines, and devices like the x-ray, CT scan machine, etc. But if we name a single most important thing which has paved our way to prosperity is medical information technology. With the arrival of this technology, humans can cope with many ailments in a more effective, efficient, and reliable manner. These can be explained in the following ways: -

1- Organization of Patients’ Data and Records

Just like blood is to the body, the same is true for patients is to medicine. In earlier times, it was very difficult to keep the patients' medical records in an effective and easily findable form. Still, this problem has been solved by healthcare information technology. Now all the patients' data is stored in a single computer system with the highest level of safety and security measures. All relevant data related to the patients can be found in a single click. With the help of these data, quicker and faster decisions can be employed to save lives.

2- Stringent Security Provisions

The data is stored on the computer, which does not mean that it is prone to hacking and misuse. With modern techniques like biometric scans like iris scans and fingerprint scans, and multiple-factor authentication, an intruder can't access the files without prior permission. Thus the quality of the data is maintained.

3- To Ensure Medical Credentialing and Quality Monitoring

Doctors and lawyers always practice! They never become masters of the field. That's why medical credentialing and quality monitoring processes are regularly carried out. With the help of healthcare information technology, the quality monitors can easily look into any doctor's overall lifetime medical records, like how many surgeries he has performed? What was the accuracy rate? How many patients survived after the surgery etc.? This enables a process of check and balance. If a doctor or medical professional is knowledgeable, he will meet no hardships in passing these quality tests. Also, if a doctor is certified, he gets more credibility and authenticity from the patient. 

4- Diminution in Human Errors and Availability of Backup

With the help of healthcare information technology, the number of errors in recording the events like time of operation or surgery, name of medicines, etc., can be reduced drastically. This enables doctors to make more accurate and effective decisions in the next medical case. Also, this electronic medical record is safe from fire and forgery. Still, if any unforeseen conditions like any act of God occur and the hard drives having the data got corrupted, there are multiple backup options available.

Thus with these uses and implementation of healthcare information technology, humans can live a more beautiful and prolonged life without any ailment or disease. Since its inception, this technology has proved its feat. It is the new future of medical science.
