CPH named "Most Wired"

Central Peninsula Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation's MOST WIRED--SMALL AND RURAL HOSPITALS, according to the results of the 2010 Most Wired Survey released in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.

The 2010 Most Wired Survey is redesigned this year to reflect two years of work with an advisory group to continually improve the Most Wired Survey. The 2010 Most Wired Survey represents a new structure and methodology with an increased use of analytics and reporting. The advisory group was comprised of leaders from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), chief information officers, Most Wired staff and vendors. Additionally, the new methodology was made available to the entire CHIME membership for review and comment.

"We are proud to announce that we were recently designated as one of the "Most Wired Hospitals" for 2010", comments CPH Chief Financial Officer Jason Paret. "This designation means that we have been recognized for our achievements in infrastructure, business and administrative management, clinical quality and safety, and the care continuum as they relate to information technology in healthcare. Over twelve hundred hospitals were surveyed for this designation, and we were considered one of the "25 Most Wired - Small and Rural" hospitals for 2010. At our hospital, we will continue to invest in technologies that allow us to provide the best care possible and take health IT to the next level."
