This October 8-12, Sentry is once again a proud partner of U.S. National Health IT Week (NHIT), focused on catalyzing actionable change within the U.S. health system through the application of information and technology.
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.
In recognition of the NHIT Week theme, Catalyzing Change, Sentry will hold an employee celebration on October 11 from 3pm – 4pm at its corporate headquarters.
“Sentry is committed to data analytics, and to transforming hospital data into assets that can improve health outcomes and help organizations achieve their goals. National Health IT Week is a good time to focus on the importance of investing in our software solutions and technology to ensure that we continue driving operational and financial efficiencies for our customers,” said Kim Jacques, Chief Information Officer. “I am proud to say I work for a healthcare technology company that is committed to lowering costs while improving the quality of patient care.”
