current trends in Health Information Systems
Over the past several decades, healthcare and information technology have undergone a period of dramatic change caused by a multitude of pressures and opportunities, many of which continue to persist and evolve. As we have moved into globalization of communication, technology, and information, Health Information Systems need to reflect what is happening to ensure optimal use of clinical information.
Discuss three current trends in Health Information Systems to optimize the use of information and three issues of concern (e.g., ethical issues) that present barriers to the evolution of Health Information Systems. In your discussion, include a brief history of Health Information Systems and connect it to Health Informatics. Include reference to literature, expert opinion, and case examples from your research to support your position, key points, and explanations.
