Two Albany Med Health Systems hospitals are among the “most wired” in the nation.

Albany Medical Center and Saratoga Hospital have made the list by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.

The group looks at how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies to their clinical and business programs.

The technology is then used to improve health and care in the communities the hospitals serve.

Kristopher Kusche, the Chief Information Officer of the Albany Med Health System said, “As we strengthen the connections between our Albany Med Health System hospitals, we look forward to continuing to share resources and integrate services, enhancing our ability to treat our patients as a single health system that spans the Capital Region.”

The survey looked at more than 36,000 organizations across the country.
