UF Health earns “Most Wired’’ status
UF Health has been cited as one of the “Most Wired” hospital systems in the United States in 2017 for using advanced technology to improve communication, safety and relationships with patients. The Most Wired survey and benchmarking study measures information technology use and adoption in hospital systems nationwide. The survey examines how health care organizations are leveraging IT to improve performance in the areas of infrastructure, business and administrative management, quality and safety, and clinical integration. The results of the 19th annual Health Care’s Most Wired survey were released by the American Hospital Association’s Health Forum and appear in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
UF Health rolls out new ID badges
Managers have begun distributing new UF Health ID badge overlays to be worn over existing IDs. These are for UF Health core service staff, UF Health Shands employees and UF College of Medicine faculty and staff in Gainesville. The new IDs are mandatory and require new photos. Faculty and staff in these groups were asked to get pictures taken by HR. If you didn’t do so, visit your employer HR section on the Bridge (under Employee Services) or talk with your department manager or chair to learn when and where you can get a photo taken.
