June 9, 2014 (Tampa, FL) – Tampa General Hospital (TGH) is now the only hospital in the state – and one of just 20 in the country – to earn national recognition for its use of advanced technology. The hospital was declared one of this year’s “Most Wired-Advanced” award winners by Hospitals & Health Networks, the flagship publication of the American Hospital Association. It marks the second consecutive year that TGH has received recognition as one of the nation’s Most Wired hospitals, and the first time as a winner in the advanced category. “We define the Most Wired Advanced as organizations that, among other things, have stronger security systems, faster disaster recovery, electronic tools to improve business processes, quality and safety, use evidence-based order sets, automated review of CMS indicators, chronic disease management services, and more,” said Matthew Weinstock, assistant managing editor for Hospitals & Health Networks.
