Abstract

Over the last 20 years, information technology (IT) has transformed the way that
people all over the world live. From revolutionizing the manner in which society
communicates to affecting the way that people acquire and substantiate information, IT has changed the way that humans interact with one another and the various systems in which they live. IT also has the potential to transform the way that healthcare providers communicate and deliver services and bridge
health disparities.
