Most Wired award logoLucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and Stanford Medicine Children’s Health have once again been recognized as one of HealthCare’s Most Wired® hospitals and health systems for 2018.

The Most Wired annual benchmarking survey is a leading industry barometer designed to identify and recognize health care organizations nationwide that exemplify best practices through their adoption, implementation and use of information technology (IT).
