Best Hospital IT Departments finalists
July 23, 2014 in Medical Technology
Eighty-five IT teams are in the running to be named a top hospital in the Healthcare IT News 2014 “Where to Work: BEST Hospital IT Departments” program.
More than 5,000 IT staff from 194 nominated hospitals completed the 79-question online survey. To qualify to be considered a top hospital, at least half the employees in an IT department needed to complete the survey.
The employee survey closed July 15. Independent research company Critical Insights, which conducts the survey, is now analyzing the data, and the top 25 winners will be announced in the October issue of Healthcare IT News, in print and online.
