‹North Cypress Medical Center Named 2017 Most Wired Hospital

Technology is making it easier for patients and providers to interact, thus improving communication, safety and patient-provider relationships. New tools are helping patients become more actively involved in their care and maintaining their health, according to results of the 19th Annual Health Care’s Most Wired® survey, recently released by the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Forum.

According to the survey, Most Wired hospitals are using smart phones, telehealth and remote monitoring to create more ways for patients to access health care services and capture health information.

“North Cypress is thrilled to be recognized as a one of the “Most Wired” hospitals. We place a huge emphasis on protecting and safeguarding patient health information and identity management, as well as patient accessibility to their clinicians/physicians. The hospital continues to provide patients and staff with the most up-to-date and secure systems available, striving to improve care and outcomes” states Beata Kasper, CIO, North Cypress Medical Center.

“The Most Wired hospitals are using every available technology option to create more ways to reach their patients in order to provide access to care,” said AHA president and CEO Rick Pollack. “They are transforming care delivery, investing in new delivery models in order to improve quality, provide access and control costs.”

Innovation in patient care embraces emerging technologies and underscores the need for secure patient information exchange. Hospitals have increased their use of sophisticated IT monitoring systems to detect patient privacy breaches, monitor for malicious activities or policy violations and produce real-time analysis of security alerts.
