“The Last 18 months have been incredibly challenging for all organizations and individuals. In this journey, it has become even more salient that the proactive and thoughtful investments healthcare organizations are making in sophisticated technologies are helping us be better positioned to support and meet the growing and complex needs of patients, caregivers, clinicians and communities we live and work in,” said Ash Goel, MD, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Bronson Healthcare. ”The Most Wired award for Bronson in all three areas of operations – Acute Care, Ambulatory Care and Long-term Care – is a measure of the success that this strategy has engendered and showcases the commitment that we have to improving the health of the individuals and communities we serve. It is an accolade that recognizes the team that has been working with unbridled energy and enthusiasm since last year and is committed to enabling an exceptional healthcare experience for every person, every time.”
