Hadassah makes the list alongside many leading hospitals like the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins in the United States, as well as many other large clinics around the world.

"The hospitals that appear on the list of the 'smartest' in the world are the ones that make the most correct and efficient use of the most advanced technologies," Newsweek magazine wrote. "The world's best smart hospitals rank medical centers in 28 countries, leading in their use of artificial intelligence, digital imaging telemedicine, robotics and electronic functions.
