ABSTRACT
The authors discusses definitions of three commonly used terms in the field of health care information technology, including interfacing, integration, and interoperability. The definitions will facilitate health-care pharmacists to communicate better, as hospitals work towards meeting the standards of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) legislation. The legislation requires pharmacists to be more aware of terminology related to medication-use process.
