With MEDITECH, Bristol Hospital Stays “Most Wired” in a Changing World


For the third year in a row, Bristol Hospital (Bristol, CT) has been named to HealthCare’s Most Wired list, recognizing their innovative use of technology to improve patient care.

“Despite this world of ever-changing technology, the one constant is the need for safe and high quality patient-centered care,” says President Kurt Barwis, in a recent Bristol Press article.

“Those hospitals that have met the rigorous criteria to be a Most Wired hospital continue to make tremendous gains by harnessing this technology to reduce the likelihood of medical errors.”

A MEDITECH customer since 2011, Bristol has used their EHR to ensure that clinicians always have the most up-to-date patient information. Their patients have also been able to take greater control over their health maintenance by accessing the Patient and Consumer Portal.
