Abstract

We reviewed economic evaluations of information technology (IT) applications in health care in the United States. National estimates suggest that fully automating administrative functions would save the system $5 to $8 billion per year. Hospital-specific estimates suggest that individual facilities could save $0.5 to $3 million annually from various clinical IT applications.
