This year, we were honored to have VA, representing all of its 151 VA medical centers, named to the 2013 “Most Wired” Hospitals list. The list is the result of a national survey aimed at ranking hospitals which are leveraging health information technology (HIT) in new and innovative ways.

The annual survey is released by Hospitals & Health Networks, in partnership with McKesson, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the American Hospital Association (AHA). Conducted between January 15, 2013, and March 15, 2013, the survey polled 1,713 hospitals and health systems nationwide to answer questions about their information technology (IT) initiatives.

As the nation’s largest health network, VA is always looking for ways to serve Veterans in the best, most efficient way possible—from hiring the best professionals to ensuring VA is using the most effective technologies in its health care services. We are constantly working to improve our practices and enhance our understanding of which technologies work best for our network.
