Intermountain Healthcare is the only Utah healthcare provider named to this year's Most Wired hospital list by Hospitals & Health Networks, the journal of the American Hospital Association. Intermountain has been named one of the nation's most technologically savvy hospital systems in 11 of the 12 years the survey has been conducted.
The recognition is based on an organization's level of achievement in four areas of focus, including business and administrative management; clinical quality and safety; care continuum; and infrastructure. More than 550 healthcare organizations were evaluated.
Intermountain has been developing and using computerized medical systems since the 1970s. Four years ago, Intermountain launched a new venture with GE Healthcare to jointly create the next generation of medical information systems for hospitals.
