One of only 10 California hospital systems to make Hospitals & Health Networks’ annual list
University of California, San Diego Health System’s hospitals and facilities are among "Health Care’s Most Wired," according to the 14th annual survey conducted by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
Hospitals and Health Networks highlights top-ranking hospitals that are evaluated by how they use information technology in five areas: business processes, customer service, safety and quality, workforce, and public health and safety.
Ed Babakanian, CIO, UC San Diego Health Sciences, leads a multidisciplinary team dedicated to advancing health care technology.
Almost half of the Most Wired hospitals, including UC San Diego Health System, reported using social media for community outreach and crisis communication. More than 25 percent of the Most Wired hospitals offer care management messages and chats with physicians, such as UC San Diego’s “MyChart” online messaging program.
Additionally, last year, UC San Diego Health System achieved HIMSS Stage 7 status, which represents the pinnacle of an environment where paper charts are no longer used to deliver patient care. UC San Diego Health System is one of only 58 hospitals – 1.1 percent, of the more than 5,000 hospitals in the database – to be recognized by HIMSS Analytics with its Stage 7 Award.
Additional key findings show that:
Hospitals & Health Networks polled 1,570 hospitals for the survey, conducted in partnership with McKesson, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the American Hospital Association.
