Introduction Health communication strategies and health information technology can be used to better population health outcomes, the quality of health care and to facilitate health equity. Health communication and health information technology are essential factors influencing health care, population health and how the society understands the medical care (In Nelson, 2013). These aspects determine how people use health information and hence, they have a significant impact on the decisions made by individuals pertaining health care. Programs such as the Healthy people 2020 has acknowledged this prospect being portrayed by health communication stratagems and health information technology, to the degree that it has made this amongst its chief intents. That is improving health care quality and attaining health equity through use of health information technology and health communication strategies. For long people have raised concerns about health equity and health quality in the health sector. This paper is therefore relevant to important stakeholders in the health sectors and scholars in the field of medical care. Health communication strategies and health information technology serves a significant role in impacting health care positively. Here are the approaches health communication and information technology operated to make value over health care quality and health equity. 1. Providing support for collaborative decision making between patients and health practitioners. 2. Offering personalized tools and resources for purposes of self-management 3. Establishing social support networks HEALTH COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 4. Facilitating accuracy, accessibility and reliability of health information 5. Enhancing the role of health information technology and promoting health information 6 exchange among health care providers and professionals 6. Facilitating swift and informed responses to health risks and emergencies related with public health 7. Improving the health literacy skills 8. Provision of new opportunities to enrich the link between health care and culturally diverse and marginalized populations 9. Establishment of sound health principles and policies in designing health programs that lead to healthier practices 10. Improving inherent and mobile access of health care services Integrating health communication strategies and health IT is something that will transform the health sectors. It stands to drive the health sector into an era of patient and public oriented medical care and services. Health IT tools need to be combined effectively with the appropriate health communication strategies. This will facilitate: the heightening of health care condition and wellbeing, progress the productivity of medical care and civic health service delivery, aptitude of care financial support including the civic and at household, better customer and quantifiable evaluation making, expand public health data interchange and substructure and the fortification of health skills and comprehension. It is important to note that errors emerge in health care and stands to cause harm to many individuals in need or health care each year thus increasing the rate of hospitalization. As if this HEALTH COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 7 is not enough, it costs the health sector extra billions of dollars. The public has a right to receive unsurpassed health care services. Hence, this research is concerned with bettering health literacy as a means of improving patient safety, health quality and health equity in a health care setting. It addresses the need for better communication between health care practitioners and their patients such that there can be heightened support for informed patient engagement and improved health outcomes (In Nelson, 2013). Each individual has a role to play in managing their personal health and the health status of their loved ones. However, health information and medical care settings are becoming complex to the extent that it is hinders the delivery of health care services. As a result, people require adequate information, proper skills and supporting relationships to enable them meet their medical needs. There are disparities being encountered in the way people access health information, medical services and health IT. This has led to a decline in the use of preventive services, poor knowledge of how chronic diseases can be managed, increased rate of hospitalization and deteriorated public health outcomes. The increased use of the internet and other health technologies has enabled many public and private medical institutions reorganize the way health information and medical care services are delivered. This has led to an increased need for developing additional skills and information by health practitioners and professionals to facilitate a better understanding and application of consumer health information (Postal, 2013). Increased online health information and medical services has also presented challenges to users and consumers of such information. It has contributed to limited literacy skills as far as internet usage in concerned. Some consumers of health information find the internet as overwhelming and sometimes inaccessible. Turning to a user centered design can assist in improving the quality and safety of health care and promoting health equity. It is important to HEALTH COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 8 consider the portion of non-web consumers of health information. This calls for the need for establishing effective health communication processes to enable this group of people acquire and comprehend health information in order to make the appropriate decisions. Such communication may encompass, usage of printed material, community outreach strategies, media campaigns and interpersonal communication initiatives. The encounter in front of us is how health specialists and physicians as well as the civic can be aided to acclimatize and retort to the improvements in health information technology and health communication stratagems to uphold health care quality and health equity and betterquality public health aftermaths. People need to capture the impacts of these advances as well as the role of health communication processes and health IT in attaining the mentioned goals. A course of action that will call for the setting up of multidisciplinary replicas and data structures. These will operate a significant part in enlargement of data assortment such that pertinent shareholders be familiar with the influences of health communication and health information know-how on public health results, medical care value, safety and health equity. Problem statement and Justification The increase in the use of virtual health information and medical care amenities has subsidized to the subject of inadequate knowledge skills. Health literacy refers to the extent to which individuals enjoy the capacity to acquire, process and comprehend basic health care information and services which, are vital in ensuring informed decisions making in a health setting. Limited health literacy is bad news for the healthcare sector (Postal, 2013). HEALTH COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY This problem is widely encountered regardless of the people’s ages, races, income levels and levels of education. However, the issue of limited health literacy seems to mainly affect minority groups and individuals falling under the lower socioeconomic status. A major concern that emerges with limited health literacy is that it disrupts the ability to acquire and use health information, embrace healthy conducts and address public health issues. Limited health literacy is a serious issue as it also leads to higher health costs and poor health outcomes (Taylor, 2015). Justification of the problem Research attempts to show the severity of this problem. The Healthy People 2010, posits that there must be proficient health literacy to reinforce the everyday health support and disease prevention measures (In Zerwekh, 2014). In addition, it assists in the effective steering of the health care system and enhances responses to public health concerns and solutions. It has been established that limited health literacy has affected most adults at a certain point in their lives. However, there are some disparities regarding the severity and prevalence of this issue. Some groups of people tend to encounter this issue more than others. Here are some of the most affected populations. • Adults over 65 years • Racial and ethnic populations not whites • Populations of non-native English speakers • Individuals with no high school degree • Individuals with relatively low income levels 9 HEALTH COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY • 10 Recent refugee and immigrants There exists a link between limited health literacy and poor health outcomes. Recently conducted research shows that limited health literacy impacts the usage of preventive services, management of chronic diseases and self-management negatively. This issue has a tendency of increasing the rate of hospitalization. It has also contributed to the misinterpretation of instructions concerning prescribing medication for patients. Psychological costs arise from limited health literacy; this is considering that some adults tend to hide their problem with health literacy for fear of getting ashamed. This implies health care providers cannot identify such patients. According to economic studies, individuals suffering from limited health literacy incur higher medical costs and tend to apply an inefficient combination of medical services (In Nelson, 2013). Other indirect costs resulting from this issue include: disability, poor quality of life, lost wages and more chronic illness. Further research needs to be done to establish the definite effects of this issue. Literature Review The modernization and reorganization of the health care information, health communication processes and HIT infrastructure is crucial in the enhancement of public health outcomes and health outcomes of individuals. The society today has become connected to the extent that there are various sources and platforms capable of generating electronic healthcare information (Taylor, 2015). This is serves a significant part in informing the health goals and decisions made. The information sources today go beyond the traditional health care setting such that the establishing a more expansive and consistent pool of outstanding information. An essential electronic health information is necessary in order to unlock the full potential of the HEALTH COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 11 available health information. Studies show that this way the health and well-being can be improved (Postal, 2013). Previous studies have shown that improvement of the secure availability and application of the relevant health information enables individuals to take control of their health, to partner with healthcare practitioners and to attain better health and quality of life (In Nelson, 2013). It has also helped in facilitating an effective healthcare delivery system and improved long term health services and supports. Furthermore, health disparities existing in communities is reduced and public health improved due to the improved ability of health agencies to detect, monitor, prevent, and manage disease outbreaks. Health information induces more research and innovation, which has served as an incentive for advancing in scientific discoveries. It is important to note that demands of health information and technology continue to evolve; opportunities are emerging to devise mechanisms for innovation and formulating programs and policies that do not interfere with the healthcare sector negatively. It has become imperious for the relevant stakeholders to focus and address this new electronic health information and health information technology paradigm for the betterment of public health. One way to improve the quality and longevity of life is to empower individuals to enable them make healthy decisions. In this case, health information is vital for the accomplishment of the individual and systemic objectives and improvement measures. However, information alone cannot be enough to improve the public health outcomes, regardless of whether it has been electronically generated and disseminated. Collective efforts are required implying many stakeholders have a role to play in making electronic health information more useful and giving it more meaning to curb the issue of limited health literacy (In Nelson, 2013). HEALTH COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 12 The most important objective of adopting health information technology is to better the health care quality and reduce health disparities as well as improve public healthcare outcomes. It aims at improving health communication processes such that costs are decreased while increasing the value in the healthcare setting. This matches the goals of the HHS National Quality Strategy which indicates the implementation measures to attain better health care, improve the well-being and health of individuals and communities and achieve affordable healthcare as well (In Zerwekh, 2014). Health information and data should be captured in a structured way. This is vital in achieving accurate, actionable and reliable clinical measurements across healthcare systems and settings. Data elements should be used consistently such that health information can be collected once and reused again for various purposes. Such purposes include: measurement of outcomes, practicing level improvements, monitoring, public health, research and decision support. This shows the importance of having efficient health communication strategies in place to facilitate individuals accessing the right information at the appropriate time. This leads to improved decision making hence, better health quality can be achieved as well as the outcomes of health care services. The advancement of the hea ...
