UC Davis Earns Most Wired for Fourth Consecutive Year




(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) - For the fourth consecutive year, UC Davis Health System has earned "Most Wired" status as one of the nation's health leaders in information technology. The accomplishment is based on results of a national survey conducted by Hospitals & Health Networks.

The 16th annual assessment considers how hospitals use information technology to address and enhance patient safety, quality of care, public health, administrative processes and workforce decisions. This year, 1,900 hospitals, or more than 30 percent of all hospitals in the nation, were represented in the survey.

"UC Davis Health System has made excellence in clinical software technology and infrastructure a top priority because it is an important foundation that enables UC Davis clinicians to deliver high-quality care to our patients," said Michael Minear, chief information officer for the health system.

Last fall, the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) awarded UC Davis one of its 2013 Davies Enterprise Awards of Excellence for distinction in the use of health information technology. UC Davis earned the award in part for implementing a sophisticated, accredited EHR system used to improve quality of care and patient safety that extends well beyond the medical center. HIMSS, the nation's leading hospital information technology society, noted that UC Davis has exchanged 3.7 million patient records of different types with non-affiliated health providers in the community and region since 2008.

And two years ago, UC Davis Medical Center was recognized for its achievements in electronic medical records (EMR) implementation, earning Stage 7 status in the EMR adoption model from HIMSS Analytics - the research arm of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society. That award, which was an independent assessment of how well UC Davis leveraged its clinical technology, placed UC Davis at the time in the top 1.8 percent of the more than 5,400 hospitals nationwide in terms of EMR use.

"We focus on criteria used by the Most Wired award because they focus on technologies and practices that support clinicians and patients." said Minear. "Achieving the status of Most Wired, as well as the HIMSS Stage 7 designation, reflect the culture of UC Davis Health System, which includes teamwork and striving for excellence."
UC Davis is one of just 17 institutions in California to receive the Most Wired award this year. The honor will be formally presented at the annual Health Forum and American Hospital Association Leadership Summit later this month in San Diego.

Background on Most Wired
Hospitals & Health Networks magazine, a publication of the American Hospital Association, compiles its "Most Wired" list annually using survey results from hospitals and health systems throughout the United States. Participating organizations are surveyed for use of IT in four focus areas: Infrastructure; Business and Administrative Management; Clinical Quality and Safety (inpatient/outpatient hospital); and Care Continuum (ambulatory/physician/community). Organizations whose responses reflect core development across all four areas are designated as "Most Wired."
