Meriter Hospital has been named one of the nation’s “Most Wired” hospitals, according the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
“We’re always looking to better coordinate and improve the quality of care our patients receive. We believe that leading the way in medical technology is just one more way we can provide better service,” said Denise Gomez, AVP of information systems at Meriter-UnityPoint Health. “I’m extremely proud we’ve earned this honor for four consecutive years. I give all the credit to our hardworking employees who are constantly looking for new ways to prepare us for the future.’’
Hospitals & Health Networks magazine partnered with the American Hospital Association, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), AT&T, and McKesson to survey more than 1,901 hospitals across the country between January and March. Hospitals were evaluated in four categories: infrastructure, business & administrative management, clinical quality & safety and clinical integration.
