ment in a comprehensive electronic health record and full automation leads directly to improvements in patient safety and quality. With the capabilities we now have at our digital campus, we will continue to create even more benefits to our patients through the blending of cutting edge technology and compassionate, family-centered care."

KLAS' determination of Children's Hospital's leadership position was based upon a number of factors including the percentage of possible physicians doing CPOE, the percentage of possible orders submitted via CPOE (inpatient and ambulatory), the percentage of physicians entering notes and documenting using an electronic health record (inpatient and ambulatory), a fully shared record between inpatient and ambulatory, the percentage of hospital beds where barcode technology is used for medication administration and the percentage of nurses charting and documenting electronically (inpatient and ambulatory).

During the presentation, Gale said the future of health care information technology is to use the systems to mine data to improve safety and quality, as Children's Hospital is now starting to do. "You are one of the pioneers," he said.

KLAS' Top Five U.S. Children's Hospitals in the Use of Electronic Health Records:

  1. Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
  2. American Family Children's Hospital (Wisconsin)
  3. The Children's Hospital (Denver)
  4. Doernecher Children's Hospital (Oregon)
  5. Children's Hospital Boston
