ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. – Catholic Health Services of Long Island, which includes a comprehensive home care program, was designated as a Most Wired hospital recently by the American Hospital Association’s Health Forum for the third time in four years. “The implementation of technology over the past few years has allowed us to develop a truly integrated system,” said Edward Grunwald, chief technology officer at CHS, in a statement. “This technology has removed many barriers to communication and allowed us to focus on caring for our patients.” CHS is an integrated delivery system with six hospitals, three nursing homes, a home nursing service, hospice, an agency for those with special needs and numerous physician practices. According to the AHA, Most Wired hospitals are using smart phones, telehealth and remote monitoring to create more ways for patients to access health care services and capture health information.
