King’s Daughters has been recognized as one of the nation’s Most Wired for Health Information Technology through Hospitals and Health Networks’ 15th annual Health Care’s Most Wired Survey. King’s Daughters also achieved this designation in 2012.
“Our continued recognition as a Most Wired healthcare system is a direct reflection of our commitment to provide the best care for patients and families who partner with us for their healthcare,” said Tim Prout, KDMC Information Services and Technology project manager. “This achievement represents effort and innovation that goes beyond any one department. It is an accomplishment all King’s Daughters team members can be proud of.”
For the past few years, King’s Daughters team members put intense focus on continued IST enhancements that improve patient care. This includes implementing and continually enhancing Epic™, an electronic health record system that integrates records wherever the patient receives treatment throughout King’s Daughters Health System.
“Epic enables King’s Daughters healthcare providers to follow each patient across multiple office visits, admissions and procedures,” said Prout. “Patients have access to their own secure electronic health information online through MyChart™. It enables them to take an active role in their healthcare.”
“This year’s Most Wired organizations exemplify progress through innovation,” says Rich Umbdenstock, president and CEO of the American Hospital Association. “The hospital field can learn from these outstanding organizations ways the IT can help to improve efficiency.”
