ABSTRACT
The article reports on the findings of the 2008 Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study. It found that patients at top technology hospitals have a better assessment of their stay and specifically are more satisfied with the admissions process and the manner in which tests and treatments are handled. The patient satisfaction and quality indicator analyses provide the strongest 10-year history of the Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study that information technology makes a difference in both the patient experience and the quality of care.
