Tampa General Hospital garners AHA Most Wired Advanced award

Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital has been named a Most Wired Advanced award winner by Hospitals & Health Networks, the flagship publication of the American Hospital Association. According to a news release, TGH is the only hospital in Florida and one of 20 in the U.S. to earn the national recognition for its use of
advanced technology.

It marks the second consecutive year that TGH has received recognition as one of the nation’s Most Wired hospitals, and the first time as a winner in the advanced category, according to a news release. Winners are listed in the publication’s July issue.

“The most rewarding aspect of our job is delivering the latest technology to our patients, providers and staff to improve the health of our community,” Scott Arnold, TGH’s CIO, said in the release. “We continue to invest in technology to maintain our high standards for safety and quality.”

The recognition is based on the publication’s 16th annual Health Care’s Most Wired survey. The survey is an industry benchmark study that measures the level of information technology achieved by U.S. hospitals and health systems.

Most Wired Advanced organizations have stronger security systems, faster disaster recovery, electronic tools to improve business processes, quality and safety, and use evidence-based order sets, automated review of CMS indicators and chronic disease-management services, according to
the release.

In other TGH information technology in healthcare news, TGH earned the Health Information Management Systems Society’s acute care Stage 7 award and it also implemented the GetWellNetwork, an interactive system for use by inpatients.
