Adventist Health Earns 2021 Digital Health Award

Adventist Health has earned 2021 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition as a certified level 9. The CHIME Digital Health 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 has been honored seven times with the CHIME Digital Health Most Wired award and this year marks the third year in a row [2019, 2020] with this prestigious honor. “I am so proud of our IT team for their brilliant work which exceeded expectations,” says Tyler Whetstine, chief information officer at Adventist Health. “Digital engagement with our patients is a top priority as we focus on access to care and improving the health and well-being of our communities.”

Adventist Health scored a certified level 9 in both the acute and ambulatory categories. Each participating organization received a customized benchmarking report, an overall score and scores for individual levels in eight segments. Adventist Health’s areas of greatest improvement include:
  • Analytics/data management: An increase of 35.3 percentage points. Our individual score in this area was 10. Our ability to embed predictive analytics in clinical workflows, as well as quality reporting are key components of this measure.
  • Interoperability/population health: An increase of 7.4 percentage points. Our individual score in this area was 10. Our ability to share data across external entities, with disease registries, as well as internally across our systems for care management, revenue cycle management and patient engagement are key components of this measure.
A total of 36,674 organizations were represented in the 2021 Digital Health Most Wired program, which includes four separate surveys: acute, ambulatory, long-term care and international acute. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
