The HIS Center of Excellence Celebrates National Health IT Week

Health information technology (HIS) 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, NOVA’s HIS Center of Excellence at the Medical Education Campus and others across the United States joined together to celebrate National Health Information Technology (NHIT) Week, September 12 to 16.

HIS Center of Excellence Career Specialist Chidinma Onyedike led NOVA’s participation in the week to highlight the College’s commitment to ensuring health information technology is integrated, interactive, interoperable and intelligent to provide the best patient outcomes.
