Northwestern Memorial Named Among "100 Most Wired" Hospitals
Hospital recognized for advanced use of information technology
Northwestern Memorial Hospital has been named among the nation’s “100 Most Wired” Hospitals according to the results of the 2010 Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study released in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. This is the 10th time that Northwestern Memorial has been named to the prestigious list and honored as a leader for its advanced use of information technology since the award began in 1999.
The annual survey examines how hospitals use information technology to address safety and quality issues, customer service, business processes, workforce and public health and safety. Northwestern Memorial appeared on the coveted list in two categories, “100 Most Wired” and “Most Wireless” hospitals, an additional tribute presented to an elite group of 25 organizations who received the highest marks for use of wireless applications.
“We are proud of the work we have accomplished and are honored to once again be recognized for our commitment,” said Tim Zoph, senior vice president administration and chief information officer at Northwestern Memorial. “Our sustained strategic investments in information technology enhance our ability to fulfill our mission of providing the best patient experience, including ongoing enhancements in care quality, safety and state-of-the-art facilities.”
Hospitals & Health Networks magazine, the flagship publication of the American Hospital Association, compiles the list annually using survey results from 1,300 hospital and health systems in the United States. A full list of award winners can be found online at www.hhnmag.com.
