Massena Memorial Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s MOST WIRED according to the results of the 2010 Most Wired Survey released today in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
Hospitals understand the importance of health information technology (IT) and the benefits of its widespread adoption, yet as a field still face significant barriers to implementation according to a newly released survey of America's Most Wired hospitals and health systems.
“Massena Memorial Hospital understands the importance of health information technology and is committed to continually making progress toward meeting meaningful use criteria,” explained Charles F. Fahd, II, Chief Executive Officer. “The Information Systems Department has made significant gains with the implementation of Bedside Medication Verification, Physician Office Integration, and ongoing training with Clinical Review and Computerized Physician Oder Entry, CPOE. In addition, a new interactive website (www.massenahospital.org) was designed offering convenient tools such as online pre-registration, bill pay, apply for a job online, search for a physician and patient education. All meaningful use requirements that we have implemented and are implementing improve quality of care and patient safety goals. We are changing the 'way we do healthcare', which enables us to continue delivering the highest level of quality of healthcare.
