At SSM Integrated Health Technologies, information systems and clinical engineering systems come together to form a hub of technology for SSM Health Care - a health system with fifteen hospitals in four states - Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois and Oklahoma.
From a central location in St. Louis and on-site at each facility in the system, over 800 SSMIHT team members plan, implement, maintain and support bio-medical and information systems for over 30,000 SSM Health Care employees.
By linking patient diagnostic and monitoring systems with electronic health records, today’s health care information systems improve patient safety by bringing critical information directly to the bedside. These networks also increase physician and nurse productivity by reducing paperwork and streamlining workflows.
SSM Integrated Health Technologies is a four-time recipient of the Missouri Quality Award. SSM Health Care was the first health care recipient of the Malcom Baldgridge National Quality Award in 2002 and was recently recognized by Modern Healthcare magazine as one of the “Best Places to Work.”
SSM Health Care was also ranked as one of the nation's most wired health care organizations in 2014 according to the Health Care's Most Wired Survey, conducted by Hospitals & Health Networks.
