Researchers from Boston University undertook a study to determine the association of various HITs with: hospital quality improvement (QI) practices and strategies; adherence to process of care measures; risk- adjusted inpatient mortality; patient satisfaction; and assessment of patient care quality by hospital quality managers and front-line clinicians. Findings from the study, published in BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, indicate that that hospital implementation of HIT was positively associated with activities intended to improve patient care quality and with higher performance on four of six performance measures.
