Three Mass. hospitals make integrated network top 100
Three Massachusetts hospitals have been named among the country's top 100 integrated health networks -- hospital systems that operate as a unified group.
Baystate Health System in Springfield was ranked 31st, Cambridge Health Alliance came in 49th and Lahey Clinic in Burlington finished 85th in the ratings released by Verispan. There were 587 hospital networks considered.
The healthcare information company said it surveyed health systems about patient access, clinical quality, physicians and the use of technology.
