Technology Supports Patient-Centric, Innovative, Integrated Environment at Clements University Hospital
For four consecutive years, UT Southwestern Medical Center has been on the national “Most Wired” hospitals list, compiled by the American Hospital Association. When the new William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital debuts in late 2014, UT Southwestern will take its position as a technology leader to an even higher level.
The new hospital will offer a wide range of technological advancements that are aimed at improving communication between patients and their caregivers, and enhancing safety, efficiency, and the quality of patient care. As planned, these technological capabilities will be introduced and implemented in stages throughout the first few months of the facility’s operation.
“Technology is hard-wired into our commitment to continually improve patient care, to remain at the forefront of innovative research, and to ensure the next generation of physicians are well prepared for the challenges awaiting them,” said Dr. Bruce Meyer, Executive Vice President for Health System Affairs.
“The investment we’ve made in the most advanced technology at Clements University Hospital underscores that commitment,” he added. “The technology will be impressive. But its purpose is to support the patient-centric, innovative, integrated environment the hospital has been designed to provide.”
