NJIT Celebrates 7th Annual National Health IT Week

New Jersey's Department of Health Commissioner, Mary E. O'Dowd, looks on as an NJIT student inputs her medical information to create her electronic Personal Health Record (PHR) as part of the 7th Annual National Health IT Week celebration.  NJIT is the first university in the state to launch this Health IT initiative.  The NJIT Health Care Clinic and Student Health Services serving the 10,000 NJIT students selected Medicat as its electronic health record system.  This system will be linked to Health-e-cITi New Jersey, a Health Information Exchange (HIE), connecting all the regional hospitals through a web-based portal platform.
