Ryan McCuskey has developed extensive experience in HIT and Information Technology throughout his professional career.
What is HIT?
HIT is a specific subset of information technology. In short, it refers to the systems and processes of information technology as used in the medical field. Since the early 2000s, HIT has proven particularly vital in improving medical practices and productivity. HIT specialists, like Ryan McCuskey, are tasked with building and navigating electronic systems of patient data. Essentially, HIT has replaced the pen and paper nature of previous document and data storing procedures in the medical field. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. HIT is about more than just storing and saving data — it’s about productively and proactively using that information to better quality of care for all patients.
Although HIT relates to the overall umbrella of information technology, the two worlds differ tremendously. IT professionals are typically experts in computer hardware alone. While HIT professionals also navigate the hardware aspects of information technology, they primarily focus on internal procedures and software.
As an HIT professional, Ryan McCuskey has gained solid expertise in medical terminology, clinical documentation and EHR systems.
Well versed in the world of information technology, Ryan McCuskey has mastered an array of productivity tools, business analytics and databases. In particular, he is an expert in Adobe Creative Suite, Drupal, LexisNexis, Salesforce CRM and various servers under the Microsoft umbrella.
Since childhood, McCuskey has found himself fascinated by technology. Digital approaches are currently balancing on an innovative and new frontier. While the world of IT constantly evolves and transforms, it’s certainly no secret that the digital spread of information has become integrated in every industry. From the start of his career, Ryan McCuskey has stood on the cutting edge of the HIT field, evolving in unison with the most up to date processes.
