Northwell Health Earns "Most Wired" Award for Five Hospitals

NEW HYDE PARK, NY--(Marketwired - July 07, 2016) - Five Northwell Health hospitals have been recognized for their commitment to healthcare information technology with HealthCare's Most Wired awards for 2016 from Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.

Long Island Jewish Medical Center, along with Southside, North Shore University, Huntington and Lenox Hill hospitals were named with 24 other hospitals and health systems in New York state and 414 nationwide for using information technology to engage patients and offer them services remotely via telehealth, according to the results of the 18th annual Hospitals & Health Networks survey released July 6.

The annual assessment looks at how hospitals use information technology to enhance patient safety and quality-of-care priorities as well as their public health, administrative processes and workforce decisions.

"Our 'Most Wired' designation reflects the culture at Northwell Health in which new technologies and practices are designed to accomplish the very best in patient care," said John Bosco, senior vice president and chief information officer at Northwell Health, who oversees the IT function of one of the nation's largest integrated healthcare systems.

Northwell Health has an IT networking team of more than 1,500 employees working at the health system's 21 hospitals and more than 450 outpatient physician practices and ambulatory facilities.
