“This award high­lights our ded­i­ca­tion to in­cor­po­rat­ing lead­ing-edge tech­nolo­gies in or­der to de­liver trans­par­ent and high-qual­ity care for our pa­tients,” said Steven Sakovits, vice pres­i­dent of in­for­ma­tion ser­vices and chief in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer at Stam­ford Health. “In­for­ma­tion Ser- vices works closely with our physi­cians, nurses and lead­er­ship teams to ex­pand our IT ca­pa­bil­i­ties that also sup­port the pa­tient ex­pe­ri­ence, such as our mo­bile apps that en­able on­line ap­point­ment sched­ul­ing, pa­tient por­tals and pa­tient kiosks.”
