For the second year in a row, Saratoga Hospital was named one of the nation’s “most wired” healthcare providers.
The “most wired” designation is based on an annual Hospital & Health Networks magazine survey that measures how hospitals and health systems use technology to improve communication, safety and patient-provider relationships.
A total of 35 New York hospitals made the list, which was released this week by the American Hospital Association’s Health Forum.
More than 2,100 hospitals nationwide participated in the survey. Of those, 461 earned the “most wired” designation by meeting requirements for infrastructure, business and administration, clinical quality and safety, and clinical integration.
