Southampton Hospital has been recognized for the third consecutive year as one of the nation’s “Most Wired” hospitals, according to Health Care’s 16th annual Most Wired Survey, conducted by Hospitals and Health Networks and other organizations.
“Our goal is to digitize all patient information and create seamless access to vital patient records throughout the entire hospital organization, including our network of satellite facilities,” said Southampton Hospital president and Chief Executive Officer Robert Chaloner. A patient portal has been created, which will allow patients to access their information via an online portal.
Mr. Chaloner stressed that the portal would be a secure website. “Health care information is a board-level priority and a critical part of Southampton Hospital’s strategic plan to build a health care system for the East End that includes the integration of physician offices, testing and treatment facilities,” he said.
