For the third consecutive year, Southampton Hospital
has been recognized as one of the nation's "Most Wired" hospitals according to Health Care's 16th annual Most Wired survey. Hospitals & Health Networks conducted the study in association with McKesson Corp., AT&T, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives and the American Hospital Association
"Our goal is to digitize all patient information and create seamless access to vital patient records throughout the entire Hospital organization, including our network of satellite facilities," Southampton President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner
said of this recognition.
Chaloner attributed the ranking to a new Patient Portal that the hospital recently launched, which allows Hospital patients access to their healthcare information via a secure website portal.
"Healthcare information is a Board-level priority and a critical part of Southampton Hospital's strategic plan to build a healthcare system for the East End that includes the integration of physician offices, testing and treatment facilities," Chaloner said.
