The hospitals of Texas Health Resources equip physicians with modern technology and support services.
Electronic Health Record Foremost among these advantages is the systemwide implementation of an electronic health record, known internally as CareConnect.
Texas Health is nearing completion of a multi-year project to install the CareConnect system in all of its hospitals. This initiative is already benefitting physicians and patients by reducing the odds for medical errors and increasing efficiency.
Once recorded, a patient's information — medical history, prescribed medications or lab results — is quickly and securely accessible to help guide designated users in making treatment decisions.
National Honors Initiatives to improve patient care at Texas Health Resources are routinely recognized with top national honors. The system is a perennial fixture in the InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators Across America, and is one of just two health care systems nationwide to have achieved this long-running distinction.

InformationWeek has identified and honored the nation's most innovative users of information technology for more than 20 years.
