HAP Member Hospitals Recognized for Leveraging Health Information Technology
July 17, 2017
The 19th annual Most Wired Hospitals and Health Systems survey conducted by Hospitals & Health Networks, in partnership with the American Hospital Association, recognizes more than 450 hospitals and health systems across the nation for successfully integrating information technology (IT) into their operations.
The Most Wired annual survey collects and analyses four areas of IT development:
- Business and administrative management
- Clinical quality and safety
- Clinical integration
From the Most Wired data received from participants each year, benchmarks are developed that are becoming the industry standard for measuring IT adoption. The 2017 Most Wired survey involved 698 participating hospitals and health systems and represents more than 39 percent of all hospitals in the U.S.
Hospital and health system profiles highlighting individual efforts among the winning organizations across the U.S. are available online. More detailed information about the annual survey and the benefits of participation also are available.
