What makes a great hospital IT workplace?

Healthcare IT News named “Best Hospital IT Departments” earlier this fall.  Out of 193 nominations, only 25 hospital IT departments made the final list, based on more than 5,000 survey responses from hospital IT employees. SunriseTM from Allscripts clients ranked #1 in 3 out of 4 possible categories.

What’s the secret to their success? It’s not surprising that in healthcare, it’s not about the money. In fact, according to Healthcare IT News, only one of the 25 winners mentions salary and benefits as a motivating factor.

Instead, healthcare IT employees place value on things like teamwork, respect and contributing to better patient care.

Congratulations to all the award winners, including several Allscripts clients. Here are just some of the ways our clients are capturing those values in their own workplaces:

Large Hospital IT Department

#1: Phoenix Children’s Hospital (Phoenix, Arizona). A “can-do” attitude and team spirit helps this busy IT department excel. You can read more about how the organization uses Sunrise solutions in an article featuring CMIO Vinay Vaidya, MD.

Medium Hospital IT Department

#1: Springhill Medical Center (Mobile, Alabama). IT support is recognized as a critical part of delivering patient care. You can read more about Springhill Medical Center’s award-winning strategies in blog posts about the Best Outsourcing Partnership Award and achieving HIMSS EMRAM Stage 6.

#5: Blessing Health System (Quincy, Illinois). Teamwork is at the foundation of this workplace. You can read more about how this department recently helped transform the organization’s revenue cycle in a recent blog post and free case study.

#8: Trinitas Regional Medical Center (Elizabeth, New Jersey) Empowering IT employees with the resources they need to succeed. Trinitas was also named to the list last year and offered advice in a recent blog post, 11 ways to build a better hospital IT department.

 Small Hospital IT Department

#1: United Regional Healthcare System (Wichita Falls, Texas) Good relationships and experience drive strong results. You can learn more in an interview with CIO Dwayne McKee about the organization’s award-winning strategies.
