JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The University of Mississippi Medical Center was recently named to the 2014 "Most Wired" list for health-care facilities by Hospitals & Health Networks Magazine.

This is the second time UMMC has been recognized with the honor.

"I am proud that UMMC has been recognized for 2 years in a row," said David Chou, chief information officer of UMMC's Department of Information Systems. "We are just getting started with the utilization of our technology portfolio to streamline operation efficiencies. The team has done a great job in shifting their mindset from being the traditional IT to now providing business value for the organization."

In partnership with the American Hospital Association, the magazine conducts the survey each year to recognize organizations for excellence in IT services and technology deployment in patient care.

UMMC was one of four medical centers in Mississippi to be recognized as "Most Wired" in the study. Others included St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson and North Mississippi Health Services in Tupelo.

Magnolia Regional Health in Corinth was also included and was named as one of the "Most Improved" facilities in the state.
