For the ninth year in a row, Carilion Clinic has received Health Care’s Most Wired™ designation from the American Hospital Association’s Health Forum. This is the 14th time that Carilion has earned the designation.
“We are constantly evaluating ways to improve the experience of our patients,” offered Keith Perry, senior vice president and chief information officer for Carilion Clinic. “The Most Wired™ designation is a nice affirmation of the work we are doing every day; it takes a tremendous amount of effort and the work of a dedicated group of people to continue to advance technology on behalf of our patients. I’m proud of the great team I’m privileged to work with.”
Most Wired™ hospitals are transforming care delivery with knowledge gained from data and analytics. They are investing in analytics to support new delivery models and effective decision-making and training clinicians on how to use analytics to improve quality, provide access and control costs.
HealthCare’s Most Wired® survey, conducted between Jan. 15 and March 15, 2017, is published annually by Health & Hospitals Networks (H&HN). The 2017 Most Wired® survey and benchmarking study is a leading industry barometer measuring information technology (IT) use and adoption among hospitals nationwide. The survey of 698 participants, representing an estimated 2,158 hospitals — more than 39 percent of all hospitals in the U.S. — examines how organizations are leveraging IT to improve performance for value-based health care in the areas of infrastructure, business and administrative management; quality and safety; and clinical integration.
Detailed results of the survey and study can be found in the July issue of H&HN. For a full list of winners, visit www.hhnmag.com.
