Clinicians, interprofessional teams, organizational systems, and patients increasingly use technology for health and health care, communication, networking, and business. In this era of ubiquitous connectivity, the digital age has solidified the role of technology in continuing medical education, faculty development, and integrating professional and personal roles and identities. Clinicians are shifting from treating technology as a supplemental modality to using it as a central organizing and facilitating tool, particularly important for clinical care. This is known as an information technology-business-medicine understanding or conceptual framework.
