Abstract

Our study compared adverse patient safety events among hospitals that have received the distinction "Most Wired" as rated by the Hospital and Health Network publication versus comparison hospitals. Risk-adjusted Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs) were calculated for 558 general adult medical/surgical hospitals participating in the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research's Nationwide Inpatient Sample. When compared using mean risk-adjusted PSI rates, no significant differences in performance for specific PSIs were observed between hospitals affiliated with the "Most Wired" label and those without the designation using objective measures of safety.
