Healthcare Information Systems Technology Services
Join an award winning team. The University of Kansas Health System's Healthcare Information Technology Services department has been named to Hospitals & Health Networks magazine's "Most Wired" list for the ninth year in a row.
To be named the "Most Wired," hospitals must show core development in four key areas:
- Business and Administrative Management
- Clinical Quality and Safety (hospital inpatient/outpatient)
- Clinical Integration (ambulatory/physician/community)
HITS has supported these measures by expanding the electronic health record system to more areas of the hospital, and implementing disease-specific applications that allow staff to use data and analytics to improve patients' outcomes.
Quantitative results must be proven through a survey distributed by the magazine.
2016 was the 18th year for the "Most Wired" survey, and 680 hospitals nationwide – about 13 percent – were named to this year's list.
HITS named third best in nation
Healthcare IT News has released its annual list of Best Hospital IT Departments for 2015. The University of Kansas Health System came in third in the "Super" size category – 200 or more IT employees. HITS was nominated along with 169 other hospitals over the summer. Nominees were assessed in several categories, including day-to-day work, culture, professional development and advancement, management and benefits. The top five hospitals were then chosen based on employee survey results.
"Our team works their best every day to ensure the health system's systems, tools and other IT projects are running smoothly. We may not be frontline clinical staff, but we do realize the role we play in providing quality care," said Chris Hansen, chief information officer.
HITS at The University of Kansas Health System is committed to providing world-class patient care through a technologically superior environment while safeguarding data integrity, security and accessibility.
