Alamance Regional Named One of Nation's Most Wired Hospitals

Alamance Regional Medical Center has been nationally recognized among hospitals for the use of information technology and named a recipient of the Most Wired Award for the second consecutive year. Alamance Regional was the only hospital in the Triad and Triangle region and one of six in North Carolina to receive the Most Wired 2013 award.

The Most Wired survey is conducted each year by the American Hospital Association (AHA). The results of the 2013 survey were released this week in the July issue of Hospitals and Health Networks.

The hospitals named to the Most Wired list use information technology to improve patient care, safety and efficiency. Alamance Regional uses information technology in a number of ways, including: · Security technology safeguards to protect patient privacy and patient data · Electronic health records and clinical information systems that are used by nurses, pharmacists and physicians · Computerized physician order entry, which eliminates handwritten physician orders · Automated drug allergy and interaction alerts · A barcode patient identification and lab specimen system · A picture archive communication system (PACS) that offers physicians fast and secure computer access to digital CT and MRI scans, X-rays and other images

“Our commitment to technology has allowed us to achieve high levels of safety and efficiency that translate to better care for patients,” says Rex Street, Chief Financial Officer, Alamance Regional. “We are continuing to add new technology that contributes to a seamless system of communication and safeguards for patients, nurses and physicians.”

Alamance Regional was an early adopter of many of today’s information technology innovations. The hospital first began building a clinical information system in 1998.
