STUART - Martin Health System was recognized nationally this month, as the hospital was named a most wired hospitals and health systems winner by "Hospitals and Health Networks" magazine.
This year, only 215 hospitals met most wired criteria, including just five from Florida.
"Martin Health has long been committed to utilizing the most progressive, innovative technology possible to provide patient care," said Mark E. Robitaille, president and chief executive officer of Martin Health System.
"Our goal is to combine technology with enhanced processes for everything from patient care to business and human resources functions. This will allow us to be more efficient and effective in everything we do."
Now in its 14th year, the recognition is provided to hospitals and health systems based on the most wired survey, which is conducted in cooperation with McKesson Corporation, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives and the American Hospital Association.
The survey includes specific criteria in four focus areas that hospitals had to meet in order to be recognized: information technology infrastructure; business and administrative management; clinical quality and safety (for inpatient and outpatient hospital services) and clinical integration (for ambulatory care services).
