More than a dozen Indiana hospitals and health systems have been recognized among the "Most Wired" by the American Hospital Association's Health Forum. The designation is given to hospitals based on their adoption of information technology resources.

Hospitals & Health Networks magazine, which publishes the list, says this year's list includes hospitals and health systems that are boosting cybersecurity efforts as well as telehealth and population health capabilities. The list was determined by a survey, conducted between January 15 and March 15, of more than 34 percent of all U.S. hospitals.

"Hospitals are breaking-out of their traditional four walls and providing care where and when patients need it," said Rick Pollack, chief executive officer of the AHA. "These Most Wired hospitals exemplify this transformation by harnessing technology, engaging patients and offering services remotely. And, removing policy and other barriers to telehealth will allow even faster adoption of these amazing technologies."

The Indiana representatives on the list include:

  • Community Health Network – Indianapolis
  • Deaconness Health System – Evansville
  • Hancock Regional Hospital – Greenfield
  • Indiana University Health Blackford Hospital – Hartford City
  • Marion General Hospital
  • Parkview Health – Fort Wayne
  • Reid Health – Richmond
  • Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center - Indianapolis
  • Rush Memorial Hospital – Rushville
  • St. Joseph Health System – Mishawaka
  • Union Hospital – Terre Haute
  • Union Hospital Clinton
  • VA Northern Indiana Health Care System – Marion
