The Business Case for Health Information Technology in Nursing Homes


Nursing homes are evincing interest in new health information technologies (HIT) to improve the quality of services, achieve operational efficiencies, and realize a positive financial return. This project will explore the business case for adopting HIT, focusing on 15 nursing homes in New York that are currently implementing HIT systems as part of a state-funded demonstration project. If the analysis finds that these facilities have achieved a favorable return on investment, other nursing home providers could be encouraged to invest in HIT. Alternatively, if the evidence is inconclusive, nursing homes may require external support if they are to adopt HIT and reap its benefits.
