Hospitals & Health Networks has just released this year’s list of ‘most wired’ hospitals, which takes into account hospitals that use information technology to achieve optimum performance. According to Healthcare IT News, the survey found:
36 percent of hospitals on the Most Wired list aggregate data from patient encounters to create a community health record.
71 percent of them manage care transitions compared with 57 percent of all responding organizations.
43 percent integrate clinical and claims data so they're accessible, searchable and reportable across the care community.
69 percent use tools for retrospective analysis of clinical and administrative data to identify areas for improving the quality of care and reducing the cost of care delivered.
