The medical industry has become an enormous user of information systems and IT services. These services, which involve the use of computers and telecommunications devices to create and manage information, can be quite complex and require additional layers of competency for a medical company to manage. One example of a medical IT system is a computerized patient record system, or an electronic billing system. Some medical industry firms use IT only to support the core operation, while others are built around IT systems – for example, a company that takes 3D sonograms of pregnant women is using an IT system as its core business. There’s a bit more to it than “if it’s got a computer, it’s an information system”, but that isn’t too far off the mark.
The medical industry uses IT services in a wide variety of way. Nearly all companies have some IT services in their business, even if only to run the payroll system or keep track of vacation days. Most medical industry companies also have outward-oriented IT systems, for example, online appointment setting or bill processing over a website. Some medical practices even have systems in place to let patients review their medical records from the comfort of a home PC.
