kaiser permanente named one of most wired companies 2015
Kaiser Permanente's California hospitals are among the top 2015 Most Wired™ health care organizations in the USA. The recognition is based on a benchmark survey by the American Hospital Association's Health Forum and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives. The results highlight the organization's use of information technology to improve all aspects of its operations, ultimately health care and value for members.
Kaiser Permanente has been on the list three consecutive years. The survey measures technology integration across the health care spectrum — infrastructure, procurement, human resources, security, clinical quality and safety, patient access, care continuum and health information exchange.
"Protecting patient health information is a top priority for us. Our members experience the benefits of connecting with us through secure, convenient channels that are easy to see, such as our mobile app, website, and email," said Richard Daniels, executive vice president and chief information officer, Kaiser Permanente. "The vast technology ecosystem that is largely behind the scenes may be less apparent, but it is just as essential to the overall member experience, the effectiveness of our employees, and the efficiency of our operations."
