The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has just updated their Health IT Dashboard with a comprehensive literature review regarding impacts of health IT: Health Information Technology: An Updated Systematic Review with a Focus on Meaningful Use Functionalities. Their most recent literature review provides an update of previous systematic reviews with new literature published during the 2010 to 2013 period.
The literature review reveals that most new studies indicate that health IT has indeed enabled significant gains in health care quality, but that their efficiency and safety were still sparsely researched. The report also includes a complementary interactive data visualization highlighting the value of health IT across these various outcomes.
