Way to go, Mission! Mission Hospitals has received yet another award in addition to being named a Top 100 Heart Hospital, receiving the Stroke Silver Performance award, receiving the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence, named on of the Top 50 Endocrinology Hospitals, receiving a three-star rating by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, etc., Hospitals and Health Networks has named Mission as one of the 100 2008 Most Wired and Most Wireless hospitals!
Why is this achievement so important? First, patients favor hospitals with advanced information technology. An analysis of data from the 2008 Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study finds that patients at top technology hospitals have a better overall assessment of their stay and specifically are more satisfied with the admissions process and the manner in which tests and treatments are handled. In a separate analysis, the nation's 100 Most Wired Hospitals and Health Systems have better outcomes on a variety of quality measures, including risk-adjusted mortality rates. Taken together, the patient satisfaction and quality indicator analyses provide the strongest evidence in the 10-year history of the Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study that information technology makes a difference in both the patient experience and the quality of care.
Most Wired Quality Indicator Analysis The 100 Most Wired achieve better quality indicator results than other hospitals for each of the following measures:
|Patient safety index||99%|
|Core measures index||99%|
|Average length of stay||99%|
And, if the decreased mortality and the increased quality of care were not enough, each of these quality indicators also translates directly to cost savings for the employer and the patient!
