Kaleida Health Named One of Nation’s “Most Wired” Hospitals

Updated: 7/14/2014

Hospitals & Health Networks, a publication from the American Hospital Association (AHA), recently named Kaleida Health as one of the nation’s “Most Wired” hospitals. The 16th annual list recognized 375 hospitals for successful health IT planning and implementation.

This year's list was compiled through a survey that evaluated about 1,900 hospitals based on four focus areas, including:

  • Business and administrative management
  • Clinical integration for ambulatory, physician, patient and community
  • Clinical quality and safety for both inpatient and outpatient hospitals
  • Infrastructure

Kaleida Health’s efforts to meaningfully use the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) as well as the implementation of the new patient portal, MyKaleida, demonstrated Kaleida Health’s ongoing commitment to using technology to improve care and engage patients.
