Palmetto Health has again been recognized as one of the 99 "most wired" organizations by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. In their July issue, Palmetto Health is touted as the only Midlands healthcare provider to meet the magazine's strict criteria and one of only three "most wired" organizations in South Carolina. Hospitals were evaluated on four factors: infrastructure; business and administrative management; clinical quality and safety; and care continuum. Although the survey traditionally recognizes 100 hospitals as the "Most Wired," AHA this year found that just 99 of the 1,280 hospitals surveyed made the cut, with only 7.7 percent of participating hospitals meeting the strict guidelines for inclusion. Additionally, 30 percent of the hospitals on the list in 2009 were not included in 2010. Palmetto Health previously won the award in 2003 and 2005.
