Southampton Hospital Recognized As “Most Wired” Hospital

SOUTHAMPTON: Southampton Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s “Most Wired—Small and Rural” hospitals, according to the results of Health Forum’s 2012 Most Wired Survey released in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. Healthcare information is a Board-level priority and a critical part of Southampton Hospital’s strategic plan to build a more robust healthcare system for its communities that will enable the Hospital to integrate existing physician offices, testing and treatment facilities. Robert S. Chaloner, Southampton President and CEO, comments, “Under the direction of William Bifulco, the Hospital’s Vice President of Physician Development and CIO, we are methodically building a paperless care environment that relies on digital information for all of our care records. We want to create seamless access to vital patient information and link our entire organization to provide improved care and patient access to services in the most effective care setting.”
