Abstract

Health Information Technology (HIT) has the potential to improve quality of care, resident quality of life, and health in nursing homes. Yet, HIT implementation in nursing homes may be delayed due to the new demands it places on nursing home staff. This study characterizes the effect of HIT on workforce perceptions and care processes, the training needs associated with HIT implementation, and the infrastructure needed for the workforce to effectively use HIT.
