Saratoga Hospital Earns ‘Most Wired’ Designation

Saratoga Hospital has been named one of “Healthcare’s Most Wired” organizations, a designation that recognizes the hospital’s commitment to using information technology to improve patient care and safety.

A total of 16,168 organizations participated in the annual Most Wired survey, which is conducted by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives. Fewer than 400, or 3%, earned the Most Wired designation.

In the Capital Region, only Saratoga Hospital and its affiliate Albany Med made the Most Wired list.

“The Most Wired designation reflects our ongoing efforts to bring the benefits of today’s information technology to our patients and staff,” said John Mangona, vice president and chief information and compliance officer for Saratoga Hospital. “We continually invest in systems, technology and talent to improve the way we deliver care and protect the privacy of our patients.”

CHIME is the professional organization for chief information officers and other senior healthcare IT leaders. Its annual survey provides benchmarks to help healthcare organizations evaluate their progress in adopting and maximizing IT solutions. The goal is to improve patient safety and outcomes by driving change in the healthcare IT industry.

Saratoga Hospital was certified at “level 7,” which recognizes organizations that are “starting to achieve meaningful clinical and efficiency outcomes.” The hospital scored especially well in the category of security, underscoring Saratoga Hospital’s commitment to securing patients’ personal health information.
