Lifespan again named among 100 Most Wired and 25 Most Wireless hospitals

Providence, RI Lifespan has again been named one of the 100 Most Wired and one of the 25 Most Wireless hospitals, according to the 2005 Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. This is the fourth consecutive year that Lifespan has made the top 100 ranking, and it is Lifespan's third consecutive year on the Most Wireless list since the category was created three years ago. Lifespan is one of only 20 organizations that have made the Most Wired list four times.

"With technology, we have given clinicians immediate access to patient information, whether in the hospital, in their private offices or at home," says Lifespan Chief Information Officer Carole M. Cotter. "By accessing this information electronically, physicians and nurses are able to provide patient care more quickly and efficiently, which leads to better outcomes for our patients."

The survey's criteria include physician adoption of computerized order entry. According to the survey, fewer than half of the 100 Most Wired have full adoption by physicians. Lifespan is among that group: At its three acute care hospitals, between 80 and 90 percent of all orders including medication, lab and radiology are entered electronically by physicians, far surpassing national rates.

The nation's 100 Most Wired hospitals and health systems are listed in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. Since 1999, the magazine has surveyed the nation's hospitals on their use of information technology to accomplish key goals, including safety and quality objectives. This year 502 surveys were submitted, representing 1,255 hospitals. The survey was conducted in conjunction with Accenture, IDX Systems Corporation and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME).

This year's Most Wired data show three significant differences in how hospitals apply and use information technology to improve care:
