Hospitals & Health Networks names Carle a 'Most Wired' health system

Released in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks (HHN) magazine, Carle joins only 338 other U.S. hospitals as a 2015 winner of the Most Wired Survey, which also includes Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center. This is Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center’s third straight year to be awarded “Most Wired” status.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our work to optimize health information systems for a fourth consecutive year,” said John Snyder, executive vice president and chief operating officer, The Carle Foundation. “This past year we upgraded information systems in cardiology and radiology, improving efficiency, accuracy, and patient security. We also upgraded our technology to provide seamless care to our home-bound patients. At Carle we believe using innovative health technology throughout our system enhances care for our patients.” 

The Most Wired Survey is based on organizations’ use of technology to manage business and administrative functions, clinical quality and safety, care continuum, and technology infrastructure.

“Our critical access hospital has made great strides in the use of technology since joining the Carle organization in 2012,” said Harry Brockus, chief executive officer at Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center. “The benefit of having an integrated electronic health record has significantly improved patient care and outcomes.  We are pleased to be named ‘Most Wired’ for the third straight year and look forward to implementing additional advances to provide the best care possible.”
