NHHS named HealthCare’s ‘Most Wired’

Print Article

NEWPORT – Newport Hospital and Health Services (NHHS) was recently named HealthCare’s Most Wired 2017, marking the 6th consecutive year of the award. NHHS received the award twice before in the category of Small and Rural; four times in the more generalized category of All Hospital, regardless of size.

According to Buzz Price, NHHS I.T. Director, “Winning this award for the sixth year in a row is no accident. Our Board and Administrators are committed to the strategy of leveraging information technology in service of our patients and staff. We’ve invested in modernizing district infrastructure, in network and application speed and stability, in customer service, and most significantly in data security and disaster readiness.”

The designation is sponsored by the American Hospital Association and Hospitals and Health Networks. Factors of consideration in determining awards are advances in mobility, clinical productivity support, and data exchange. Price adds, “The advances we’ve made at NHHS don’t go unnoticed among our peers in rural healthcare, and all agree we are one of the Most Wired!”
