NLH Receives “Most Wired” Award For Second Year in A Row

For the second consecutive year, New London Hospital has earned a Most Wired - Small and Rural award from Hospitals & Health Networks magazine, the journal of the American Hospital Association (AHA). Most Wired health care organizations are recognized for adopting technologies to improve patient documentation, advance clinical decision support and evidence-based protocols, reduce the likelihood of medication errors and rapidly restore access to data in the case of a disaster or outage. The award is based on a national annual survey of hospitals’ technology use. This year, about 1,713 hospitals, or roughly 30 percent of all US hospitals, responded to the survey. Of these, only 23 hospitals in the country received the Most Wired award.
