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 embraces 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 2017 issue of Health & Hospitals
Network magazine. For a full list of winners visit
