Health Care being a crucial sector dependent upon utilizing the latest technologies, IT can play a vital role in streamlining and restructuring its organizational edifice. The amalgamation of IT and Healthcare can bring about an enormous improvement in levels of services, communication, quality, expertise, results, efficiency and costs.

Given the complexities of the modern health care system, the role of IT is critical in improving the quality of healthcare services. As noted by the IOM's Committee on Quality health care in America, "Information technology must play a central role in the redesign of the health care system if a substantial improvement in quality is to be achieved over the coming decade."
