AHA News Now

The nation’s “Most Wired” hospitals are using smart phones, telehealth and remote monitoring to make it easier for patients and health care providers to interact, according to results from the 19th annual Health Care’s Most Wired survey, released today by the AHA’s Health Forum subsidiary. Hospitals also have increased their use of sophisticated information technology monitoring systems to detect patient privacy breaches and monitor for malicious activities, and are investing in analytics to support new care delivery models and effective decision-making. “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.”
