About the course

This course 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 electronic health record (EHR) related patient safety
  • Utilizing a red flag-based approach to identifying electronic health record related safety concerns
  • Managing conflicts that arise between user groups
