MU Health Care 

"Most Wired" For Fifth Straight Year 

University of Missouri Health Care has been recognized for the fifth consecutive year as one of the nation’s “Most Wired” health systems, according to the 2015 Most Wired Survey. The survey was released in the July issue of the American Hospital Association’s “Hospitals & Health Networks” magazine.

Most Wired hospitals were determined by the annual Most Wired Survey, which recognizes top hospitals and health systems in the country that are making progress in the adoption of health information technology specific to the areas of infrastructure, business and administrative management, clinical quality and safety, and clinical integration. To achieve Most Wired designation, hospitals must make continuous advancements in the implementation of new technology.

“Each year, the bar is raised to become a Most Wired health system,” said Mitch Wasden, chief executive officer and chief operating officer of MU Health Care. “But at MU Health Care, we’re constantly striving to improve care through technology. We are honored to be recognized as a Most Wired health system for the fifth straight year.”

MU Health Care has reached several milestones in the adoption of information technology to improve patient care. In February, MU Health Care gave patients the ability to view physician notes online after a visit. The notes include clinical observations, diagnostic test results and other details of a patient’s care, which are automatically synced with the MU Health patient portal. The portal is an online secure tool that allows patients to manage appointments, securely message providers, request prescription refills, access immunization history and more.
