Northwestern Memorial named among '100 Most Wired Hospitals' for sixth consecutive year

Northwestern Memorial Hospital has once again achieved recognition on the list of the "100 Most Wired Hospitals" as designated by Hospitals & Health Networks, the journal of the American Hospital Association. Noted as a consistent leader in healthcare information technology, Northwestern Memorial is one of nine Illinois hospitals named to this year's list. It is the hospital's sixth consecutive year as a recipient of the prestigious honor.

"Information technology is a key enabler of change in the health care system, which in the end will help hospitals deliver safer, higher quality and more efficient healthcare."

The "Most Wired" awards are based on voluntary participation in a survey focusing on how hospitals and health systems use information technology to address operational and strategic challenges. Questions in the survey are updated each year to focus on new technology trends in the industry. This year's survey, which drew participation from more than 1,200 hospitals (about 21 percent of the total number in the country), measured the areas of safety and quality; customer service; business processes; workforce; and public health and safety.

In this year's survey, hospital CIOs stated that information technology has a key role in both targeted safety efforts and overall systemic improvement to quality and patient safety. According to an outcomes analysis conducted for the magazine by Solucient, the 100 Most Wired hospitals have, on average, risk-adjusted mortality rates that are 7.2 percent lower than other hospitals, even after controlling for the size of the hospital and teaching status.
