New tools are helping patients become more actively involved in their care and maintaining their health, according to a recent survey from the American Hospital Association's Health Forum, and Centura Health is on the forefront.

For the third consecutive year, the operator of St. Anthony Summit Medical Center in Frisco was named to the organization's list of "Most Wired" medical facilities. According to the report, those hospitals included are using smartphones, telehealth and remote monitoring to establish more methods for patients to access health services and capture related information.

"The 'Most Wired' hospitals are using every available technology option to create more ways to reach their patients in order to provide access to care," Rick Pollack, AHA president and CEO, said in a news release. "They are transforming care delivery, investing in new delivery models in order to improve quality, provide access and control costs."

The "Most Wired" survey, conducted between Jan. 15 and March 15, is published annually by Health & Hospitals Networks. Detailed results of the study can be found in the July issue H&HN, and a full list of recipients is available at: HHNmag.com
