Work Among the Best

Join an award-winning information technology team. The University of Kansas Health System's healthcare information technology services (HITS) team has been named to Hospitals & Health Networks magazine's Most Wired list since 2008.

To be named Most Wired, hospitals must show core development in 4 key areas:

  • Infrastructure
  • Business and administrative management
  • Clinical quality and safety (hospital inpatient/outpatient)
  • Clinical integration (ambulatory/physician/community)

HITS has supported these measures by expanding the electronic health record system to more areas of the hospital and implementing disease-specific applications that allow staff to use data and analytics to improve patients' outcomes.

Quantitative results must be proven through a survey distributed by the magazine.

Our team works its best every day to ensure the health system's tools and other IT projects are running smoothly. We may not be frontline clinical staff, but we do realize the role we play in providing quality care. – Chris Hansen
