Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Adventist Health System, which is comprised of 45 hospitals in the U.S. including Florida Hospital Tampa, Florida Hospital Carrollwood, Florida Hospital Connerton Long Term Acute Care, Florida Hospital North Pinellas, Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center Sebring, Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center Lake Placid and Florida Hospital Wauchula made Hospitals & Health Networks list of Most Wired Hospitals and Health Systems, which is based on the publications Health Care’s Most Wired Survey. “Our hospitals in the Florida Hospital West Florida Region effectively leverage information technology (IT) to continuously improve the quality of care we deliver. We are honored to be recognized for our IT initiatives, investments and technology adoption that ultimately benefit our patients,” said Michael Schultz, President and CEO of the Florida Hospital West Florida Region.

Health Care’s Most Wired Survey, conducted between January 15 and March 15, asked hospitals and health systems nationwide to answer questions regarding their IT initiatives. Respondents completed 680 surveys, representing 1,900 hospitals, or more than 30 percent of all U.S. hospitals. The survey methodology sets specific requirements in each of four focus areas: infrastructure, business and administrative management, clinical quality and safety, and clinical integration. “The Most Wired data shows that shared health information allows clinicians and patients to have the information they need to promote health and make the most informed decisions about treatments,” says Rich Umbdenstock, President and CEO of the American Hospital Association. “Hospitals, their clinicians and their communities are doing tremendous work to enhance their IT systems in ways that support care and delivery improvement, and patient engagement goals.”

Key findings from the Most Wired Survey include:

  •     Hospitals are utilizing information technology to better connect disparate care providers as 67 percent of Most Wired hospitals share critical patient information electronically with specialists and other care providers.
  •     Nurses and physicians share best practices for patient safety and use checklists at more than 90 percent of Most Wired organizations.
  •     Nearly all participants in the Most Wired Survey have an established health IT project governance process and evaluate existing workflow processes and desired outcomes.

The survey also reports 69 percent of Most Wired hospitals use tools for retrospective analysis of clinical and administrative data to identify areas for improving the quality of care and reducing the cost of care delivered.
