Intermountain Healthcare is again included on the “Health Care’s Most Wired” list, based on a nationwide study of technology use conducted by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. The ranking is based on assessments in four categories: infrastructure, business and administrative management, clinical quality and safety, and clinical integration.
Intermountain has been named among the nation’s most technologically savvy hospital systems in 15 of the 16 years the survey has been done.
“We continue to develop business and care processes to help patients and those who take care of patients,” said Marc Probst, Intermountain Vice President and Chief Information Officer. “Intermountain’s clinical and financial information systems allow patients to move easily between inpatient and outpatient care environments. And our new Health Hub mobile app gives patients instant access to prescription refills, lab results, secure messaging between clinicians and patients, and more.”
Earlier this year, respondents completed 680 surveys, representing 1,900 hospitals, or more than 30 percent of all U.S. hospitals. The American Hospital Association journal, Hospitals & Health Networks, published the results in its July issue. Click here for a complete listing of the rankings.
