Hospital Recognized

SALISBURY — Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) has been recognized for a seventh consecutive year as one of the nation’s Most Wired Hospitals, according to the results of the 2016 Most Wired Survey released in the July issue of the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health & Hospitals Networks magazine.

PRMC has been honored by the AHA with a Most Wired Award or Most Improved Hospital Award a total of nine times in the 18 years of the survey for its use of Information Technology (IT) in support of medication and patient safety, information exchange and data protection.

The survey of 680 participants, representing an estimated 2,146 hospitals, examines how organizations are leveraging IT to improve performance for value-based health care.

“As Peninsula Regional and the nation’s healthcare system transitions to more integrated and patient-centered care away from the traditional hospital setting, the use of information technology to better connect patient with provider is essential in providing each the knowledge and information necessary to make informed healthcare decisions about treatment and care options,” said PRMC Chief Information Officer Ray Adkins.
