The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) is honoring Adventist Health with its 2019 CHIME Healthcare's Most Wired recognition as a certified level 8 organization. The Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities.
Adventist Health received this award at the healthcare delivery system level for all of its hospitals and clinics. More than 16,000 organizations were represented in the 2019 Most Wired program. Adventist Health scored in the 78th percentile. Healthcare systems with level 8 certification have deployed technologies and strategies to help them analyze their data and are starting to achieve meaningful clinical and efficiency outcomes. Level 8 certification organizations also receive a quality award.
"Adventist Health is honored to be recognized with this distinguished award" says Matt Fink, chief information officer. "We strive to raise the standard of care through the adoption of technology and effective use of information management."
The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading. Adventist Health received scores in eight areas: infrastructure; security; business/disaster recovery; administrative/supply chain; analytics/data management; interoperability/population health; patient engagement; and clinical quality/safety.
Adventist Health will be recognized in the November issue of the Most Wired, Modern Healthcare special edition publication and at the CHIME19 Fall CIO Forum.
