Nemours Makes 2017 Most Wired List

Wednesday, Jul 12, 2017

List Recognizes Hospitals that Use Technology to Partner with Patients on Health 

For the seventh consecutive year, Nemours has been recognized in Health Care’s Most Wired® survey, released by the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Forum. Recipients of this prestigious honor are selected through a rigorous survey focused on how organizations are leveraging IT to improve performance in the areas such as quality and safety and clinical integration.

"Technology is at the foundation of Nemours’ efforts to help families access the care they want when they want it," said Bernie Rice, chief information officer for Nemours Children’s Health System. "The Most Wired recognition is confirmation that Nemours is a true leader in field."

Health Care’s Most Wired® survey represents an estimated 2,158 hospitals – more than 39 percent of all hospitals in the U.S. 

Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware has made the list for seven years; and Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando has been honored every year since opening in October 2012, making this the fifth year in a row.  

"The Most Wired hospitals are using every available technology option to create more ways to reach their patients in order to provide access to care," said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. "They are transforming care delivery, investing in new delivery models in order to improve quality, provide access and control costs."

The results are published by Health & Hospitals Networks (H&HN) and may be found in the July issue of H&HN. For a full list of winners, visit www.hhnmag.com.
