SSM Health has been named to the “2017 Health Care’s Most Wired” list, marking the fourth straight year the organization has received this recognition from the American Hospital Association Health Forum.
The “Most Wired” list is determined by the association’s annual Most Wired survey, which highlights hospitals and health systems and their adoption of innovative technology to improve care delivery, patient experience, clinical quality and safety, clinical integration and IT infrastructure.
According to the survey, Most Wired hospitals use smart phones, telehealth and remote monitoring to create more ways for patients to access health care and capture health information.
They also are investing in analytics to support new delivery models and effective decision-making, and they are training clinicians on how to use analytics to improve quality and control costs.
SSM Health operates SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital-Janesville.
