Elliot Health System Named Most Wired for Fourth Consecutive Year
An anesthesiologist and pain interventionalist, Dr. Brian Klagges has earned widespread recognition for his patient-focused and groundbreaking work in New Hampshire. Dr. Brian Klagges leverages his expertise in the field of pain management to serve as the director of interventional pain management and the director of the interventional spine center at Elliot Hospital in Manchester.
For the fourth consecutive year, Elliot Health System was featured in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine as one of the nation’s “Most Wired” hospitals. The title “Most Wired” is awarded to health care organizations that utilize technology to provide patients with better care. For example, 81 percent of Most Wired hospitals use bedside bar code technology to appoint medications to the patient, nurse, and order. The majority of most wired healthcare establishments use technology to decrease the occurrence of medical errors and to share critical medical information with other care professionals.
Using data from the annual Health Care’s Most Wired Survey, hospitals are assessed across four operational components to evaluate their use of technology to improve clinical and financial processes. The survey questions explore hospitals’ tech initiatives and strategies for implementing electronic health records.
