LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Medical Center has become the only hospital in the state to earn the 2015 Most Wired Award from the American Hospital Association Health Forum and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.

The center says only 338 of the 2,213 hospitals surveyed by CHIME in 2015 received the award.

Award winners showed excellence in information technology leadership in addressing patient care, customer service, business processes and safety issues. They are also leaders in health data security and patient engagement.

Medical center CEO Roxane Townsend says health care teams are using improved access to accurate data to identify areas to improve care and measure the success of medical interventions.
