A True Story of Healthcare IT Saving a Life

09.20.2017

Our very own Kate Banks, a recruiter for Harmony Healthcare IT, recently shared how an emergency situation with her husband Greg illustrates the true value of healthcare IT. Kate’s account is featured in a blog post on the HIMSS-sponsored website for National Health IT Week.

National Health IT Week is a nationwide awareness week (Oct. 2-6, 2017) focused on the value of healthcare IT. It is an independent week made up of partner-driven events offering healthcare stakeholders an opportunity to unite under one banner, one message: the benefits health information technology can bring to U.S. healthcare.

National Health IT Week was founded by HIMSS and the Institute for e-Health Policy in 2006.  The Administration, Congress, corporations, providers, and non-profit organizations around the country are all recognizing the value of shining the spotlight on health IT for one week every year.

For Kate, the spotlight on the value of health IT is with her every day as she and Greg are thankful for the people who stepped in and the electronic health records that were in place for him to survive.
