Earlier this week, President Obama proclaimed the week of September 12 through September 17, 2011 to be National Health Information Technology (IT) Week. To show their support, Fidelis Partners and Medestar have launched a nationwide sweepstakes this week to promote the president’s proclamation of National Health IT Week. Fidelis Partners and Medestar represent physician and mid-level job opportunities nationwide, placing providers on a permanent or temporary basis. Now through December 11, 2011 healthcare providers can win an iPad 2 by simply entering the official Facebook sweepstakes at http://www.facebook.com/fidelismedestar. Fidelis Partners and Medestar hope to be an integral asset to this important change in the health care industry and believe the iPad 2 prize will supply healthcare professionals with a chance to advance their own information technology capabilities.

In his official statement, President Obama acknowledged how American economic advances have been fueled by technology and have led to an improvement in the lives of Americans. He continued by stating, “progress in our Nation's health care system is no different, and hinges on the work of hospitals, private practices, and information specialists as they modernize our health information systems.” The president strongly believes “this technology is critical to improving patient care, enabling coordination between providers and patients, reducing the risk of dangerous drug interactions, and helping patients access prevention and disease management services.”

President Obama urges Americans to learn more about the benefits of health information technologies. The presidential proclamation emphasized the growing importance of technology in the healthcare industry, stating “health information technology connects doctors and patients to more complete and accurate health records.” He also emphasized how “tools like electronic health records and electronic prescriptions help patients and providers make safer, smarter decisions about health care.”

Fidelis Partners and Medestar stand behind this presidential proclamation and believe technological advances can and do greatly improve the healthcare industry not only in terms of patient care, but also by improving the quality and availability of information used by physicians in patient encounters. Fidelis Partners and Medestar believe technological advances allow medical providers to diagnose patients more quickly and accurately, enabling faster treatment plans than ever before. For some patients, early treatment can often be the difference between life and death, making technology an essential tool for the future of health care.
