Trinitas Regional Medical has again received Hospitals & Health Network’s Most Wired Award, marking the seventh straight year the Medical Center has attained this honor.  The Most Wired award holds great value to Trinitas as it illustrates their efforts to improve technology and enhance privacy for patients and staff.

The annual Health Care's Most Wired survey is designed to measure the level of IT adoption in U.S. hospitals and health systems, and serve as a tool for hospital and health system leadership to map their IT strategic plans. Health Forum, an American Hospital Association company, distributes, collects and analyzes the Most Wired data and develops benchmarks that are becoming the industry standard for measuring IT adoption for operational, financial and clinical performance in health care delivery systems.

The New Jersey Hospital Association outlined next steps for “wired” hospitals like Trinitas, noting that “an important shift is occurring from implementation of technology to leveraged deployment for meeting strategic care objectives.”

According to Judy Comitto, Vice President & Chief Information Officer, “Here at Trinitas we are already leading the way in the electronic use of our systems.  For example, we recently implemented voice technology for physician documentation through our electronic health record system.  This software also employs clinical decision support alerts to the physician which aids in quality measures and appropriate billing.”  Comitto is currently the Chairperson of Jersey Health Connect, the largest and most comprehensive Health Information Exchange in the state, connecting thousands of healthcare providers and millions of patients.

New health information tools and technology make it easier for patients and providers to interact, thus improving communication, safety and patient-provider relationships, according to results of the 19th Annual Health Care’s Most Wired® survey.

Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President & CEO of Trinitas, noted, “The Most Wired designation tells the world that we foster a culture of self-improvement, and will do whatever is necessary to advance quality and patient safety.”
