Unit 8: HIT and Infecting a Patient Safety Culture

This unit dives into the specifics of how poor design and misuse of technology can place patients and organizations at risk. A strong case is made for the responsibility of users to monitor information systems for risks and to ensure that they use these systems appropriately. Examples of poor design are provided, as well as their impact on patient care. The HIT professional's role in ensuring attention to usability and compatibility with workflow during the design and testing phase of implementation is discussed.
