Ashland, Ky.— King’s Daughters Health System has been recognized as one of the nation’s Most Wired for Health Information Technology in the July issue of Hospital & Health Networks magazine. 

“This recognition reflects the effort and intensity that King’s Daughters Health System has put into information technology over the past few years,” said Cathy Cooper-Weidner, vice president, chief information officer. “This includes implementing Epic™, an electronic health record system, to continually improve quality outcomes for our patients.”
