Digital Health Is A Critical Muscle Needed For Pandemic Rebound According To CHIME
Digital Health Most Wired Survey
ANN ARBOR, MI, October 26, 2022,– The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) today celebrates revolutionary achievement in digital health for 18 organizations awarded at the highest level of the CHIME Digital Health Most Wired Survey with level 10 certification.
These 18 healthcare providers have demonstrated a sterling commitment to digital health transformation by raising the bar to drive innovation in health and care. To be certified at level 10, organizations must exhibit an outstanding record of leveraging the power of digital technology within a visionary corporate strategy. Additional qualified healthcare organizations were also recognized from level 7 through 9 and above for demonstrating their dedication to excellence in digital health.
“We are excited to recognize those in the forefront of digital excellence,” said H. Stephen Lieber, Chief Analytics Officer at CHIME. “Their pioneering performance inspires other organizations by example. Patients in communities around the world receive better care because these providers drive change through digital transformation, as they have proven through their success in this rigorous survey.”
This year, the survey grew by 20%, despite the pandemic, and represents over 38,000 facilities from 10 countries. Those providers include organizations that serve patients across the continuum of care: acute care, ambulatory care, and long-term/post-acute care (LTPAC).
This is a story that reaches far beyond the achievements of Digital Health Most Wired’s top-performing organizations,” said Russ Branzell, President and CEO of CHIME. “Deeper analysis of the data shows the major efforts underway to transform the way we deliver care as facilities up their digital game in areas such as patient engagement, clinical quality, security, and data analytics.”
Each participating organization receives a customized benchmarking report available through their complimentary Digital Health Analytics portal, an overall score, and scores for individual levels in eight segments: infrastructure; security; administrative/supply chain; analytics/data management; interoperability/population health; patient engagement; innovation; and clinical quality/safety.
The 2022 survey also included an unscored section on digital transformation to allow for data gathering on responses to emerging digital health trends without impact to an organization’s rating. A list of the highest-achieving healthcare organizations in level 7-10 presented by category is available here.
