Southampton Hospital announced this week that it has been named as a Most Wired Hospital through the Health Forum's 2012 Most Wired Survey, which was conducted January 15 though March 15.
According to the hospital, the designation was given in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine and says that the hospital has been working to "leverage the adoption and use of health information technology to improve performance in a number of areas."
Robert S. Chaloner, Southampton President and CEO, said that the hospital has been working to that end for sometime: “We are methodically building a paperless care environment that relies on digital information for all of our care records. We want to create seamless access to vital patient information and link our entire organization to provide improved care and patient access to services in the most effective care setting.”
