In recognition of the growing interest in and importance of health information technology (HIT) among the Academy's membership and their practices, the HIT-EHR resource center is your one-stop shop for all things related to health IT for dermatology offices.

The Academy offers a wealth of resources related to adopting an electronic health record system (EHR), implementing electronic prescribing (e-prescribing), complying with meaningful use, as well as learning more about policy developments and other regulatory compliance requirements related to HIT.

Members also are encouraged to get involved in these efforts through participation in task forces and committees.
