Wired for patients

UF Health is among an elite group of health care facilities that have been recognized for their commitment to using advanced technology for a better patient experience. UF Health’s hospitals in Jacksonville and Gainesville have been listed among health care’s “Most Wired” facilities for 2016. The results of the 18th annual survey were released July 6 by the American Hospital Association’s Health Forum and appear in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. The Most Wired award recognizes 364 health care organizations nationwide that demonstrate core technological development in infrastructure; clinical integration; clinical quality and safety; and business and administrative management. This year, in addition to requiring systems that support and enable clinical care, financial management and operational management, Most Wired emphasized developments in predictive analytics, telehealth and cybersecurity. — Doug Bennett
