Abstract

The research aims to find the extent of use of Information Technology (IT) amongst Healthcare practitioners in tertiary healthcare hospitals in Metropolitan cities. To provide improved and better healthcare services, Information Technology (IT) can be used to some extent. Data of individuals seeking Healthcare services can be recorded and stored for future use and analysis to provide better diagnosis at a faster pace. Healthcare Data relating to individuals can be moved across different Healthcare terminals quickly and accurately. However, to use IT, it is important to understand the current extent of use of IT in Healthcare units. It is also relevant to study the awareness of IT amongst Healthcare providers. It was found that the extent of use of IT by healthcare practitioners.
