Most Wired

Marion General Hospital has been named one of the 2017 Most Wired™ hospital and health systems in the nation for the eighth time.

Technology is making it easier for patients and providers to interact, thus improving communication, safety and patient-provider relationships. New tools are helping patients become more actively involved in their care and maintaining their health, according to results of the 19th Annual Health Care’s Most Wired™ survey, released by the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Forum.

“We are honored to once again be named as a Most Wired hospital,” states Emmanuel Ndow, Chief Information Officer. “The recognition validates our commitment to transform the health of our community by providing high quality care outcomes through the strategic use of technology.”

Innovation in patient care embrances 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. 

MGH is one of only 15 hospitals, or the top 10%, of technologically advanced hospitals in Indiana to receive the honor. Detailed results of the survey and study can be found in the July issue of Health & Hospitals Network magazine. For a full list of winners visit www.hhnmag.com
