Most Wired Hospitals Use Technology to Partner with Patients on Health

CHICAGO, July 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology is making it easier for patients and providers to interact,

thus improving communication, safety and patient-provider relationships, according to results of the 19th Annual Health Care's Most Wired® survey released today by the American Hospital Association's (AHA) Health Forum.  Not-for-profit Sutter Health earned recognition as one of 2017's Most Wired™.

"In the dynamic field of healthcare technology, adopting and implementing technical innovations is critical to support the evolving needs of our care providers and our patients. Health IT plays a vital role in improving care quality and efficiency, helping control costs and enhancing the patient and caregiver experience," said Jon Manis, senior vice president and chief information officer for Sutter Health. "On behalf of our entire Information Services team, we are truly honored to be recognized for our support achievements for the third year in a row."

According to the survey, Most Wired hospitals are using smart phones, telehealth and remote monitoring to create more ways for patients to access healthcare services and capture health information.

Additionally, innovation in patient care embraces emerging technologies and underscores the need for secure patient information exchange. Hospitals have increased their use of sophisticated IT monitoring systems to detect patient privacy breaches, monitor for malicious activities or policy violations and produce real-time analysis of security alerts.

Most Wired hospitals are also 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 was conducted between Jan. 15 and March 15, 2017. 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.
