Health Information Technology
The Louisiana Primary Care Association’s Health Information Technology team is charged with supporting Louisiana’s Community Health Centers with the data support and technical assistance needed to provide care to their patients.
What is Health Information Technology?
Health information technology refers to the processing, analysis and storage of health information digitally. Examples of health IT include telehealth services and cloud data storage of medical information. The use of health IT has grown exponentially over the last decade, improving health care quality, preventing medical errors, increasing efficiency, and reducing health care costs across the board.
At the Louisiana Primary Care Association, we work to fully implement health IT into the FQHCs we partner with. Health IT services have become a top ingredient in providing value-based patient care that improves outcomes.
