Madden says that the term “healthcare information technology” is pretty broad. There are actually many facets involved including the ability to analyze, store and share patient information. Healthcare providers are using the IT to better serve the patient. According to Madden, patients can also use the same technology to communicate with doctors and to understand the steps that should be implemented when dealing with their own health.

Drew Madden says that unfortunately, there are many things that are taken for granted in the healthcare field. It is not as simple as people copying and pasting one application into another. He says getting hospitals to communicate with one another will remove many obstacles.
