Every Hospital on Becker's 100 Great Hospitals List for 2017 is on the TraceLink Network
Each year, the Becker’s Hospital Review announces their list of the 100 Great Hospitals in America, recognizing innovation, quality care, and clinical research, and the organization released the 2017 list just last month.

With a single login to our network, those 38 customers can send and receive data with any direct partner in their supply chain – and have the opportunity to connect with any other entity on our network. If a partner isn’t already on the TraceLink network, we’ll add them.
