Southampton, NY—Southampton Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s “Most Wired” hospitals for the sixth consecutive year, according to the results of HealthCare’s 19th Annual Most Wired® survey, released earlier this week by the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Forum.
According to the survey, Most Wired hospitals like Southampton are using smart phones, telehealth and remote monitoring to create more ways for patients to access health care services and capture health information.
“Keeping up with today’s ever-changing technology can be extremely difficult, so we are very proud of the work our IT team is doing to ensure seamless access to digital patient records throughout the Hospital, our satellite facilities and medical practice offices,” said Robert S. Chaloner, Southampton Hospital President and CEO. “When patients have digital access to their records, it improves their quality of healthcare and can even save their lives.”
“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.”
