In recognition of the growing interest in and importance of HIT among the Academy's membership and their practices, the HIT-kit website is your one-stop shop for all things related to health IT for dermatology offices.

The HIT-kit is where you can find information about adopting an electronic health record (EHR) system, implementing electronic prescribing (e-prescribing), as well as learning more about DermLex, HIT policy developments and other regulatory compliance requirements related to HIT.

The Academy offers numerous resources in the HIT-kit. Members also are encouraged to get involved in these efforts through participation in task forces and committees.
