AKRON - Akron Children's Hospital has been named one of the country's "Most Wired" hospitals.
The health care industry's "Most Wired" survey, conducted by the American Hospital Association, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives and others, creates a national benchmarking report and compares each hospital's information technology solutions.
The award comes just six months after Akron Children's was ranked at stage six out of seven, and in the top 10 percent of hospitals nationally for use of inpatient electronic medical records by HIMSS Analytics.
"The best hospitals today have strong IT cultures. I am proud to say Akron Children's is now in that company," says Grace Wakulchik, chief operating officer at Akron Children's Hospital.
