How to be one of the best hospital IT departments

From a super-sized hospital in Los Angeles trying to expand with telemedicine to a small IT shop in post-hurricane Puerto Rico with its EHR system powered by a generator, this year's Best Hospital IT Departments show what excellence looks like in action. Some of the departments in our seventh-annual feature are enormous, and some are tiny. But all of them have a dogged commitment to enabling innovative use of technology to help physicians and clinical staff to provide the best care and support for patients and families. Learn how the leaders of these teams build a winning culture.
