University of Missouri Health Care has been recognized for the fifth consecutive year as one of the nation’s “Most Wired” health systems, according to the 2015 Most Wired Survey. The survey was released in the July issue of the American Hospital Association’s “Hospitals & Health Networks” magazine.
Most Wired hospitals were determined by the annual Most Wired Survey, which recognizes top hospitals and health systems in the country that are making progress in the adoption of health information technology specific to the areas of infrastructure, business and administrative management, clinical quality and safety, and clinical integration. To achieve Most Wired designation, hospitals must make continuous advancements in the implementation of new technology.
