SAN DIEGO — Sharp HealthCare has been included in the 2011 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. Sharp has been recognized on this list in recent years for innovations such as the mySharp patient portal, which allows patients to view their medical records, request appointments and communicate with their doctors.
In addition, Sharp is on track to meet the "meaningful use" requirements under the federal government's Health Information Technology of Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act). The act provides financial incentives to hospitals and doctors who adopt and utilize electronic health records in a meaningful way to meet specific patient quality measures.
InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies. Top winners have included: CME Group, Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders. Additional details on the InformationWeek 500 can be found online at www.informationweek.com/iw500/.
