Introduction
Health information technology (HIT) refers to a coordinated sequence of technological processes in the management of health information for use by providers, payers, consumers and other stakeholders in an established healthcare environment. Although evolving an effective HIT may be demanding and time-consuming, HIT is seen as the most promising tool for healthcare quality improvement, safe and effective healthcare delivery systems. It is significantly essential to healthcare systems to ensure safer, more patient-centred and efficient care, and to support audit, quality improvement initiatives, public health, health service planning and research. However, there is observed lack of effective health information management systems in developing nations due to the prevalence of cumbersome paper-based and disjointed health data management capable of impairing effective healthcare decision making process. The implementation of HIT requires the willingness of players and stakeholders in the healthcare industry. Therefore, health information management professionals who have leadership roles to play in the designing of health information technology would have to own up to their obligations in order to ensure effective implementation. In the same vein, other stakeholders would have to be more proactive and the governments’ interventions in ensuring effective implementation would become essential in developing nations.
