Health Information Technology to Improve Children's Health

Information and communications technologies are significantly changing health care in the United States. Yet, as this electronic revolution accelerates, insufficient attention is focused on realizing its full value for the nation's children. At this time of technological innovation, and as significant public and private dollars are being invested, it is crucial to ensure that children's unique needs are considered in the development of health information technology (IT).

The Children's Partnership's Health IT Initiative uses research, community-based demonstrations, policy development, and advocacy to promote the best use of health IT to improve access to coordinated, quality, preventative, and child-centered care.
