Nashville, Tenn., October 2, 2018 — This October, Kraft Technology Group — as a partner in the advancement of health information technology to help improve healthcare — is a Proud Partner in U.S. National Health IT Week. U.S. National Health IT Week is an awareness week offering all healthcare stakeholders an opportunity to unite under one banner, expressing the benefits that health information technology (IT) brings to U.S. healthcare. “The Value of Health IT.”
Comprehensive health care reform is not possible without system-wide adoption of health information technology, which improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors, and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.
Initiated in 2006 by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), National Health IT Week has emerged as a landmark occasion for using health IT as part of the overall solution to improve America’s healthcare as a bipartisan, federally led, market driven initiative.
The Week consists of events across the country, including U.S. National Health IT Week participants —vendors, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations, and consumer protection groups— all working together to elevate national attention to the advantages of advancing health IT.
“We are looking forward to once again be partnering with HIMSS for National Health IT Week.” said Don Baham, President, Kraft Technology Group. “Whether you’re a medical facility, doctor’s office, or health/insurance plan, KTG has the technological resources and expertise to help you maintain, process, and transmit patient data securely. We are your reliable provider of healthcare compliant IT services. Our service has been audited by a trusted third-party, which distinguishes us from other providers.”
