Grand View Hospital is One of Health Care’s Most Wired 2013  

         Grand View Hospital has been named one of America’s “Most Wired” hospitals for a third consecutive year, according to the results of the 2013 Most Wired Survey in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks (H&HN) magazine.

        The survey found that the nation’s Most Wired hospitals are making great strides in establishing the basic building blocks for creating robust clinical information systems aimed at improving patient care. This includes adopting technologies to improve patient documentation, advance clinical decision support and evidence-based protocols, reduce the likelihood of medication errors and rapidly restore access to data in the case of a disaster or outage.

        “We are pleased to have again been recognized for our commitment to improving health information technology for the community we serve,” says Jane Loveless, Chief Information Officer at Grand View Hospital. “Projects that allow our patients to connect to crucial information wherever they are and our adoption of new technologies to facilitate access to documentation continue to be on Grand View’s roadmap for the future.”

        Grand View continues to build on the infrastructure improvements for health information technology established a number of years ago. The hospital began implementing the electronic medical record (EMR) in 2002, before many other hospitals considered making the transition to digital. Documentation available through the EMR allows clinical staff throughout the hospital and physician offices to provide the best possible care efficiently and accurately. Grand View’s patient portal, an internet-based service that will make parts of a patient’s medical record such as lab results or test results available to patients online, will launch this fall.

        “This year’s Most Wired organizations exemplify progress through innovation” says Rich Umbdenstock, president and CEO of the American Hospital Association (AHA). “The hospital field can learn from these outstanding organizations ways that IT can help to improve efficiency.”

        Health Care’s Most Wired Survey, conducted between Jan. 15 and March 15 by the AHA in cooperation with the McKesson Corp., AT&T, and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), asked hospitals and health systems nationwide to answer questions regarding their IT initiatives. Respondents completed 659 surveys, representing 1,713 hospitals, or roughly 30 percent of all US hospitals. This year marks the 15th anniversary of Health Care’s Most Wired Survey.
