From Health IT Literacy to Health Workflow IT Literacy

Today’s #HITsm chat topic is near and dear to my heart: Health IT Literacy. I designed the curriculum for the first undergraduate degree in Medical Informatics/Health Information Science and that is exactly where I started! More specifically, I started with healthcare workflow as the conceptual foundation for health IT literacy. Today I’m raising awareness for the need for health workflow technology literacy along a variety of channels, blogs, Twitter, webinars, presentations, etc.


Health workflow tech literary is, in fact, an important, but not much unappreciated part of health IT literacy (oh the debates I’ve been in with the medical informatics folks…). So, below is my version of the five health workflow IT literacy questions.

Topic: Health Workflow IT Literacy

W1. Is health workflow IT literacy needed? If so, who is the audience?

W2: What type of health workflow IT literacy is required?

W3: Who should be involved in promoting health workflow IT literacy?

W4: How should health workflow literacy and health workflow IT literacy inter-relate?

W5: How will you promote health workflow IT literacy?

It should be an interesting #HITsm chat!
