Title: A Framework Approach to Interprofessional HIT Adoption
Abstract: Today's health care workforce is being asked to work in collaborative, integrated healthcare teams to achieve the goal of delivering patient centered, safe, effective care that meets the growing and complex needs of the patient population. Clinicians are also being asked to adopt Health Information Technology (HIT) at large-scale and rapid rates. The purpose of this presentation is to explore how a framework driven approach can be utilized to guide interprofessional practice and culture transformation at the point of care by providing the required infrastructures, process and tools that support team based care that is leveraged by HIT. Lessons learned from nearly 400 rural, community and university clinical settings in the USA and Canada who have implemented the framework will be shared.
