NEW HAVEN — Forget health care — Connecticut hospitals are “wired.”
Hospital & Health Networks magazine’s annual “Most Wired” list of the nation’s hospitals that have used information technology to improve patient care quality and safety has conferred “most wired” honors on 11 hospitals in the state, including Waterbury Hospital.
But it was the Yale New Haven Health System that was given the distinction of “Most Wired Advanced” for its IT network system. The magazine survey examines hospital initiatives that share health information needed by doctors and patients, support delivery of care and reduce the likelihood of medical errors.
Other Connecticut hospitals to make the grade included Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, MidState Medical Center in Meriden, Hartford Hospital and Norwalk Hospital.
